BITS will not start and updates will not download or install

    I am having problems downloading and installing updates.
    My last successful update was in July and I have made no
    changes or additions to my PC other than an online update
    to my IEN Warbirds program. My update log indicates a
    80246008 error for each attempt which indicates a problem
    with the background intelligent transfer services (BITS).

    I have tried to start the BITS service by automatic and
    manual methods and both fail with a 2147024891 error.

    MS knowledge base 883822 suggested a fix by
    running "regsvr32 qmgr.dll". This resulted in:

    "qmgr.dll was loaded, but the DllRegisterServer entry
    point was not found. This file can not be registered."

    A system restore to a point previous to the date when the
    updates started failing and a repair using my XP system
    disk have not worked. There is a BITS update available but
    I cannot download and install it

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    "Access is denied" -2147024891 (80070005)

    It's a general access denied ( no permission) error when
    you try to enable it. you have to change it from
    administrator account or group

    The ususal: run first disk cleanup, then Spybot and/or Ad-aware. Boot
    to safe mode and do a complete virus scan. When verified clean, boot
    normally and run system file checker from a command prompt, type
    sfc[space]/scannow. Have your install CD handy. Following sfc, try
    again the BITS update. If that fails again, then review the default
    settings for all system services using this site (do not use the
    blackviper site, IMO)
    http://www.theeldergeek.com/services_guide.htm Set all services to the
    Windows default except those that are known not be be needed in your
    version of XP. If this likewise fails, the it might be time for a
    repair install of XP.
