    I found by accident that AU did not work, manually I found the same error as
    OP. I tried to activate BITS but no go. I did follow the procedure on art.
    883822 (rereg those dll's - ok,ok) but after that BITS would not wake up
    either. Errorcode -2147024894. In the system log it states: 2147942402
    (0x80070002). Any ideas?

    Try manually downloading the BITS package and install it.
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en
    Update for Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) 2.0 and WinHTTP 5.1
    (KB842773)
    If appropriate reboot and then try and start BITS.

    Re: Error Code: 0x80246008

    In another thread (2147942402 (0x80070002)) I found the solution to get BITS
    active. The problem has obviously something to do with the removal of Norton
    AVirus awhile ago. I post the solution here. All credits go to David_C.
    Thanks again.

    Hello all,

    If deleting the ..\downloader folder has not solved your problem try
    this. It should do the trick.

    1. Open a new text document on your desktop.
    -right click on desktop
    -point to new
    -point to text document

    2. Copy and paste the following entries into the text document.

    regsvr32 oleaut32.dll
    regsvr32 jscript.dll
    regsvr32 vbscript.dll
    regsvr32 msxml.dll
    regsvr32 softpub.dll
    regsvr32 wintrust.dll
    regsvr32 initpki.dll
    regsvr32 cryptdlg.dll

    3. Save this file as a batch file.
    -click on save as
    -open the drop down box at the bottom to read save as file type: all
    files
    -name of file: BITS_fix.bat (the .bat is creating a batch file)

    4. Run the BITS_fix.bat (double-click)

    5. Now start BITS service. Should start fine and allow all updates.

    Explanation: (I think this is what's happening)
    -Removing an anti-virus program removes or corrupts initpki.dll.

    Hopes this works for any frustrated users out there.

    Regards, Bert W
