    Windows update and BITS missing


    Hi,
    As the title suggests both these services are missing from my system.
    Its a 64 bit win 7 sony vaio. Have tried the tutorial in this site, microsoft detection tool and various other methods available on the net in the last 8 hours.
    Standalone installer fails saying the specified service doesn't exist as an installed service.
    Fixit tool fails saying you don't have permissions to start BITS.

    Have checked registry and registry entries exist for both BITS and update.
    Read somewhere to create the service by using sc. On trying that got an error of CreateService Failed 5. Access is denied.
    Am totally at my wits end now. Would appreciate any help.

    Regards,
      My Computer

    Hi, Thanks for the reply,

    Hi,
    The checkdisk kept on failing at 5%. The system kept on restarting.
    Finally i pressed a key, skipped the chkdsk and logged in.

    OK
    Please open an Elevated Command Prompt window, and run the following commands...

    SC CONFIG BITS start=Auto
    NET START BITS
    NET START WUAUSERV

    post the results.

    Here are some instructions to make life easier :)
    1) To open an Elevated Command Prompt Window (the ECP window), click on Start, All Programs, Accessories – then right-click on Command Prompt, and select Run as Administrator. Accept the UAC prompt.
    2) To run the commands easier, highlight the block of commands, and right-click on the highlight – select Copy. In the CP Window, click on the black/white icon at top left – select Paste. The commands will run but may not complete the last command, so hit the Enter Key once.
    3) To copy the results... click on the Black/White icon in the top left, and select Edit... 'Select All', and hit the Enter key - then use Ctrl+V or r-click+Paste to paste it into your response.

    CHKDSK failing at the same point very time is not a good sign - it's likely either to mean a sophisticated rootkit, or a failing drive.

    Thanks for the prompt response.
    Results for the commands below.
    On the rootkit vs failing harddisk i suspect the former coz sometime back i purchased mcafee total protection and could not install the anti virus package at all. Other components installed fine but any attempt to install virus and spyware protection failed.

    C:\Users\liji>SC CONFIG BITS start=Auto
    DESCRIPTION:
    Modifies a service entry in the registry and Service Database.
    USAGE:
    sc <server> config [service name] <option1> <option2>...

    OPTIONS:
    NOTE: The option name includes the equal sign.
    A space is required between the equal sign and the value.
    type= <own|share|interact|kernel|filesys|rec|adapt>
    start= <boot|system|auto|demand|disabled|delayed-auto>
    error= <normal|severe|critical|ignore>
    binPath= <BinaryPathName>
    group= <LoadOrderGroup>
    tag= <yes|no>
    depend= <Dependencies(separated by / (forward slash))>
    obj= <AccountName|ObjectName>
    DisplayName= <display name>
    password= <password>

    C:\Users\liji>




    C:\Users\liji>NET START BITS
    The service name is invalid.

    More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2185.

    C:\Users\liji>NET START WUAUSERV
    The service name is invalid.
