KB3065822 Caused BITS Failure to Start

Just a note to point out a recent problem solution.

My Windows Update was freezing, and it was traced to a failure to start the BITS service.
That is the Background Intelligent Transfer Service. All of the customary solutions failed
and the service properties either remained greyed out or produced errors on attempt to start (Specific error -2147024894). A great deal of time and effort was spend in fruitless and very confusing solution attempts.

The problem was fixed when at last I removed all of the recent updates one by one.
The matter was resolved when KB3065822 was removed. My changes to Windows Explorer had
suggested to the update service that I needed this update for Internet Explorer 10.

The BITS service started by itself on removal of the update, and Windows Update now works, albeit with some confusion about duplicate downloads and that caused by the Microsoft banner about Windows 10.

Regards to all.

This isn't working for me on a Toshiba given to me, brand new installation of w7. I got a bunch of 'access is denied' error messages with all three of these options and Microsoft FixIt does nothing, it just says it was processed. Windows update is stuck at "checking for updates" the entire night

Hello Sylveon,

Looking at your previous posts, it may be best to clean install Windows 7.

This is a clean install of w7. This is the first time posting about this computer on the forums. My other posts are about my HP computer

Where did you get the installation media from? If it's not official, then that could be the issue.

Did you install anything before this started?

Might try doing another clean install then in case something went wrong last time.

While this batch script applies to primarily Vista, 7, & 8 systems... I'm wondering if anyone has attempted this on any Server OS's like 2008 & 2012 as they have similar services.

Just curious

Hello Digity, and welcome to Seven Forums. :)

I haven't tested the .bat on the Server OS's, but yeah it should work the same on them as well since they use the same Windows Update.

If you wanted to test it, be sure to create a restore point first to be safe.
