Verify that BITS is correctly configured and started:

1. Click Start, click Run, type services.msc, and then click OK.
2. Double-click Background Intelligent Transfer Service.
3. In the Startup type box, click Manual, and then click Apply.
4. Click the Log On tab, and then verify that the service is enabled in every hardware profile that
is listed. If the service is disabled in one or more hardware profiles, click the hardware profile,
click Enable, and then click Apply.
5. Click the General tab, and then click Start.

If that's all okay, then perhaps:-

1. Click Start.
2. Choose Run.
3. In the Run box, type (pressing okay after the command) :-
Regsvr32 QMGR.DLL

Re-install BITS by running the BITS setup again - manual download of the BITS package
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en Update for Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) 2.0 and WinHTTP 5.1 (KB842773)

Click Start Run Type regsvr32.exe Enter
This is supposed to be the XP solution but I am running Vista and it works for me neat and simple. I have used it twice.

Click Start
Choose Run
Type regsvr32.exe wuaueng.dll
Click OK

I'm running Vista 32bit and yea, that fix worked for me as well. Does anyone know why this happens?

Err ... what goes after regsvr32 ? Just running that means nothing
without specifying what's being registered.

Did mean regsvr32 qmgr.dll to repair the BITS service ?

Going by past history, one would tend to pin the cause on this issue on
the installed security software. It did not allow the successful
registration of wuaeng.dll.
So, the question is, what is the installed AV/security
suite/anti-spy/malware programs ?

Re: Error 80070424

I did as explained here and got this message - "The modlue wuaueng.dll was loaded but the call to DLLRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80070005. for more information search online."

i did search for it but came up with a lot of no help.

all this started cause i was watching something in VLC and it crashed, blue screen, restarted and problem reports came up saying it was my graphics card (brand freakin new laptop too i might add) and there was no soloution to the problem at this time (yay)

so i try update and no go, error codes.

actually, i remember it didnt work last week either.... huh.

anyways, does anyone know the magic answer? running Vista Home 32 bit. already tried MGADiag.exe.

That's a Permissions issue. Possibly caused by security software
changing the Perms for wuaueng.dll. The file is located in WINDOWS\System32.
You'll need to show hidden files, folders, and system files to locate
it. When you do, right click it, choose Properties, and then click the
Security tab.
SYSTEM, Admins, and Users need Read&execute and Read perms. Is it set to
that ?
TrustedInstaller has Full Control.

I'm using a 64 bit Windows Vista Home Premium and nothing of these
solutions seem to work.

For Those Using Vista: you have to run Command Prompt as an administrator and then try to type the commands e.g. "regsvr32 wuaueng.dll"

You may have the error about "dllregister" if you are not running the commands as administrator.
One way to do this is by typing the word "command" or "cmd" in the search box, Right click Command Prompt and select Run as Adminstrator. Then type the commands from there.

Click the Start orb; in the Start Search field enter
Under Programs, click on services.msc
If a UAC prompt appears enter the password, if one is used, or click the
Continue button
Scroll down the list of Services until you locate Windows Modules
Is it listed ?
If the Startup Type is set to Disabled or Manual, click the Start
service link.
Does the Windows Modules Installer start ?
If yes, then set the Startup type to Manual by double left clicking on
Windows Modules Installer. Then set the Startup type to: Manual.
Click Apply, then OK.

IF the Windows Modules Installer service is missing then you will have
to contact MS Support. They will send you a replacement
TrustedInstaller.exe, a registry file, and instructions on how to edit
some Permissions, replace TrustedInstaller.exe, and Merge the registry
