Error Code 80246008 when trying to download MS Updates

Running Win7x64 SP1 machine (last MS updates done in June); I ran Windows update, selected the patches to install (I usually do it incrementally: Windows, IE, Office, then any .Net) and clicked install. Dialog box said it was downloading but the percentage downloaded stayed at 0%. Noticed my modem light were not flickering; checked Task Manager which showed no network activity. I had to use Task Manager to kill the task. I rebooted and tried again; this time waiting until it errored out with code 80246008.

Checking Event Viewer, I found the following entries:

General: The Background Intelligent Transfer Service service terminated with service-specific error %%-2147024894.

Both COM+ Event System and RPC are started (automatic), but BITS is not (Automatic/Delayed). I have tried starting it manually, but get the service-specific error code-2147024894. I have tried changing it to manual, rebooting, changing it to Auto(delayed), rebooting with no success.

I've run sfc /scannow; searching on 'cannot' finds 8 unfixable errors:

(which I've had for a long time and it never interfered with updates previously).

I ran the System Update Readiness tool, with the following results:

(My CBS zip file is 57.6 MB small, which is I believe too big to attach<g>)

I tried your Reset_reregister_Windows-Update_Components.bat and rebooted (twice) with no joy.

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Network\Downloader exists.

I've tried MS Fix 50202 which gives the following error:

service 'Background Intelligent Transfer Service' (BITS) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start sytem services.
(I am doing this in my admin profile).

I tried running your BITSWin7.reg via psexec, but had no File> Import to run the .reg file (?).

Running sc query bits at the commandline yields:

SERVICE_NAME: bits
TYPE : 20 WIN32_SHARE_PROCESS
STATE : 1 STOPPED
WIN32_EXIT_CODE : 1066 <0X42a>
SERVICE_EXIT_CODE : -2147024894 <0x80070002>
CHECKPOINT : 0x0
Wait_HINT : 0x0

I hope someone will be able to help me (because I'm plum out of ideas),

TIA

Background Intelligent Transfer service won't start - 2147024894

I think tried almost everything you did to no avail...but alas, I found this simple registry fix (by adding a subkey). It apparently applies to XP, but at this point I was willing to try anything and adding a subkey didn't seem too risky.
As soon as I added the subkey, the BITS started and my updates proceeded to download.

source https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/910337

Scroll down to Troubleshooting steps and then the third one here:

Windows could not start the Background Intelligent Transfer service on the local computer. For more information review the system event log. If this is a non-Microsoft service contact the service vendor and refer to service-specific error code -2147024894. (0x80070002)

If you receive this error message, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.

2. Locate the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\BackupRestore\FilesNotToBackup

3. If the registry subkey exists, go to step 4. If the registry subkey does not exist, create the registry subkey. To do this, follow these steps:

A. Right-click Backup Restore, point to New, and then click Key.
B. Type FilesNotToBackup, and then press ENTER.

4. Quit Registry Editor.

5. Click Start, click Run, type services.msc, and then click OK.

6. Double-click Background Intelligent Transfer Service.

7. In the General tab, click Start.

Oh my gosh -- for want of a nail; who would have thought the lack of one valueless registry key would create such havoc?

Many, many thanks texistent; system all updated now.
