    BITS doesn't exist on Windows Vista Ultimate

    Hi! I have a big problem with BITS (Background Intelligent Transfer Service),
    and because of this, I can't upgrade my Windows through Windows Update, and
    some services doesn't work correctly.

    I already ready a lot of tips and guides to solve this problem, but anyone
    could help me. The question is: in my services.msc, BITS doesn't exist! I
    really couldn't find any post that looks like my problem...

    I thing that the way to get it work is "reinstalling" BITS. But how to do
    this?

    I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate 32 bits.

    Best regards,
    Rodrigo P. Ghedin.

    Hello Rodrigo
    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,
    wuauserv

    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?)

    Thanks,
    Darrell Gorter[MSFT]

    Hi Darrel!

    First of all, thanks for your help. I've become very glad about it.

    Before I read your message, I tried to restore system files through an
    upgrade install of Vista Ultimate. I've needed to reactivate Windows, but now
    system is perfect (including BITS )!

    Very thanks again!

    Regards,
    Rodrigo P. Ghedin.

    RE: BITS doesn't exist on Windows Vista Ultimate

    Hey, I'm also having a problem with BITS its not listed under services. I ran
    the command Run tasklist /svc and i managed to find an svchost entry that
    contained the following services you mentioned, however, the BITS service is
    not listed. I am also using Vista home premium any help would be great as
    Windows update is not working
