What happens if you open an elevated cmd prompt and run "net start BITS"
What message do you get back?
Open you registry ( start - run regedit.exe)
Browse in regedit to HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\services\BITS.
Right-Click on the key and export to a text file
Post the results back.
Open and elevated cmd prompt;
Run tasklist /svc
Look for an svchost entry that contains the following services:
AeLookupSvc, Appinfo, BITS, Browser, gpsvc,
hkmsvc, IKEEXT, iphlpsvc, LanmanServer,
MMCSS, ProfSvc, RasMan, Schedule, seclogon,
SENS, ShellHWDetection, Themes, Winmgmt,
All these services should be in one svchost instance, is this svchost
displaying in the list after running tasklist /svc (any, all or none of the
services running in that list?)
