    I have XP Pro on my laptop and have just discovered that my updates have
    failed to load since June 2007?! So - I have gone into the Services area and
    switched the Startup type to Auto. and then I click on Start - It doesn't
    start - it gives me the following error:

    ---------------------------
    Services
    ---------------------------
    Could not start the Background Intelligent Transfer Service service on Local
    Computer.

    Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified.
    ----------------------------

    I am stuck at this point - I have tried the following post and it helped the
    computer to validate Windows - but otherwise didn't help the updates to
    install! HELP - I didn't realize that the updates were not working and it's
    been almost a year - lots of updates that I need to do!!! UGH! Thanks in
    advance for any help!

    working on Step 1 and I can't Restart the BITS Service - when I click on
    Start for the BITS service I get the following message and the only option I
    have is OK.... HELP :-(
