I have been fighting this problem since December 31 2010 when it occurred. My system no longer listed the BITS service at all. I had a bit locker but the service was not in the system.
Some of the updates you could download in a service pack a while back so I had a partial update.
We had a power failure here and that is what cause my error. Being the stubborn sort I was not willing to do the wipe it clean option unless I could no longer secure the system.
I installed both the registry keys and for the first time this year the win-update actually worked. THANK YOU!
BTW this was the first issue I have had with Windows 7. Thankfully we finally have an os that is more stable then win95 was. Can't say that about all the one's in-between them. LOL

I just wanted to say thanks - I've been struggling for ages with Windows Update not working (it said the service wasn't running) and nothing seemed to work. The COM+ Event System and the BITS services seemed to be present and started but WU still wouldn't work. I used your instructions and bat files to carry out both stages of the method covered in Windows Update - Reset and after running both bat files and restarting my PC Windows Update started working again!
It looks like it's been broken for about 6 months (I don't know why the Windows Action Centre didn't flag up any problems!) but now all the necessary updates are downloading - so THANKS! :-)
