Windows 7: Updates fail - BITS won't start. "error code -2147024894"

Updates fail - BITS won't start. "error code -2147024894"

All the dependencies for BITS are running, but BITS won't start.

SFC says everything is OK.

CHKDSK is OK.

Now what?


UPDATE: After rebooting, found the following 3 errors in SYSTEM log:

DCOM got error "1053" attempting to start the service WSearch with arguments "" in order to run the server:
{7D096C5F-AC08-4F1F-BEB7-5C22C517CE39}

DCOM got error "1053" attempting to start the service WSearch with arguments "" in order to run the server:
{9E175B6D-F52A-11D8-B9A5-505054503030}

The server {4991D34B-80A1-4291-83B6-3328366B9097} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.

Examined the first key ....CE39 (i.e. WSearch) and found
it contained a REG_SZ named AppID with Data {9E175B6D-F52A-11D8-B9A5-505054503030}

...
Examined the third key ... 9097 which is the BITS, so all this is telling me is that BITS didn't start and register with DCOM? But why?

UPDATE: Followed the steps in Windows Update Error 80246008 in Windows 7 - Fix

NOTE: followed the instructions, using admin elevated command file, but never saw the word "RESET" appear in the updates window, though it now thinks I have "never" applied an update, despite being able to see applied update history.

Also, I can check for updates, but still not apply any because BITS is not running and won't start.

Tried the alternative batch files, which resulted only in warnings about BITSadmin being deprecated, but also "Unable to connect to BITS - 0x80080005" from the reregister bat file.

The reset...full.bat file issued a "A service specific error occured: 2147942402." and finished with the same 0x80080005 as in the above try.

Included the requisite reboots and followed the additional steps II through V in the procedures outlined in the guide. No change.

I should have titled this "BITS is BRICKED."

Hello Soho,

If you haven't already, you might see if doing a system restore using a restore point dated when this did work may sort it for you.

I tried a restore to a recent point, but that did not work. In frustration, I have since set this problem aside and my Windows installation is now aging without updates. I may have resort to a reinstall I suppose - something I have no time for just now.

As a last resort to hopefully avoid a clean install, see if using OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to completely reset Windows Update and it's components may help.

Have returned to mucking with this problem.

Ran FIXIT for WIndows Update to automatically reset the Update components. It reported two things:
1) RC_DATAstore problem with ErrorCode 0x80246008
and
2) that my architecture is amd64, though I am running an Intel i5, verified by CPU-Z.

... more to come...

Ran the Option 3 exactly as specified in Windows Update - Reset which I had previously tried when I started this thread- See "UPDATE: Followed the steps in Windows Update Error 80246008 in Windows 7 - Fix" in my first post.

Upon reboot, BITS will will not start.

DISM log file attached.

So, after various other poking around, I think there should be something called initpki.dll in the windows\system32 directory, but it does not exist on my hard drive!

Where can I get this?

On hold now. My work around is a new computer. Could have reinstalled windows I suppose.
