Hello Deviaqua, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if doing a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before this happened may be able to help.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

THANK You~~~

Spent hours figuring out what nasty trojan hit my pc and I suppose in the process of aggressively sweeping the PC I may have broken a couple of the windows services (windows update and BITS). Thank you thank you for this tutorial, I spent hours trying to figure out how to get BITS to work again and had it figure down to registry setting but couldn't locate the proper values~ Thank you~ :3

Fix that works for Windows Update BITS problems

Great work! The BITSWin7.reg fix in part V followed by the Windows Fixit for Windows Update resolved my issues. The Fixit and other solutions did not work before.

Thanks and well done!
