Great tips and they worked for me too!

However I am uncertain, should i delete the previous files in the bits.reg in Services and then import yours or should I keep them and import yours as well?

I asked you to post subkeys as well! Bits.reg imports all keys that are in bits.reg (take a look at it...open in notepad). All that keys are very default and not system specific.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\BITS\Parameters is normally only writeable by user SYSTEM. Some viruses or reasons unknown to me cause that key will be writeable by administrators and value ServiceDll=%SystemRoot%\System32\qmgr.dll inside that key is gone or overwritten by another value.

Most of the time that's the only thing you need to add/replace.

I generally understand what you are saying but not 100%, my fault guaranteed since I am no ace at this.

The subkeys; Are those the ones found in the folders below; BITS/performance, BITS/parameters and BITS/security?

Yes. They aren't actually folders/files
