Run Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware download
What is the real problem with running elevated command prompt?

I was having the same problems - Windows Update Service and BITS service were not listed in services.msc
1. Ran Malwarebytes, removed 3 viruses.
2. ran batch file, Reset_Reregister_Windows_Update_Components.bat to restore Windows Update Services.
3. imported your .reg file.

Now the computer is updating from Microsoft.

Thanks again.

Much as I'd like to take credit, that was Kaktussoft's reg file, not mine

Thanks Kaktussoft.

I have been trying to fix this issue since august, from forums, microsoft forums and even the apps MS have to fix it and none of it was any help, just goes to show that MS need to hire new support staff because all i needed was the correct registry entry, once i used Kactussoft's reg key, i have run windows update and i am now downloading and installing 42 updates, so thanks again.

Hello Kaktussoft - Thanks for posting this fix... I am having the same issue as 3DPiper did. I am not the best with registry stuff though... when I try to import your registry attachment using regedit, I get an error saying that it cannot do that b/c some of the keys are in use. I've tried to do the same thing in SafeMode, but still no go. Would you have any tips on how to import your registry file so that I do not get that error? I sure appreciate any advice you might have! Thanks, TR6

Have you tried double clicking the reg file?

Otherwise try starting up in safe mode, then use the reg key file

Please import the reg file attached to this post. Attachment 268053This imports succesfully?
It's just the BITS key form registry, but I didn't include HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\BITS\Parameters

Can you post a screenshot of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\BITS\Parameters key? It must look like this
Attachment 268054

put psexec.exe in folder c:\windows\system32
psexec can be found on http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/s...rnals/bb897553
Now open an elevated command prompt Elevated Command Prompt

Now type:
Code:
psexec -i -s regedit
Now regedit opens? It runs as user system. Can you edit the values now?
