I did that, deleted Distribution Folder files, and then I used your FIX WU tool that you provide and all went well... thanks

I have a similar problem. The windows updates dont actually download although the progress bar keep moving forever - I have tried leaving windows update running overnight.
I am using windows 7 64 bit.
The problem started around three months ago after I uinistalled and reinstalled several software (all non-microsoft) including Blackberry Desktop.
I have narrowed down the problem to the BITS service but havent found a fix for the BITS service. This is the error message I receive when starting BITS manually.
"Windows could not start the Background Intelligent Transfer Service on Local Computer. FOr mor inforemation, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-microsoft service, contact
the service vendor and refer to service-specific error code -2147024713."
BITS is dependent on the COM+ and RPC services. I have checked that both are running.
Can anyone suggest a fix solely for the BITS service ?

I'm having trouble downloading and installing updates on my WIndows 7 64 bit machine.
This problem occurred right after installing WIndows 7.
I managed to fix the problem using your troubleshooting steps for clearing the distribution folder, re-registering Dll's and OCx's and using the
fix WU tool.
However, the problem has recurred around 3 months ago and this time the Fix WU tool is not helping although it runs without errors.
The only significant thing I can remember doing before encoutering this WIndows 7 update problem for the second time is that I
uninstalled and reinstalled several versions of the Blackberry Desktop client in some cases by using Win XP Compatibility setting when
running the installer.
When I now try to run Windows update the progress bar just runs
forever (I have tried for upto 15 hours) without any updates happening
nor error messages showing.
I have narrowed down the problem to BITS not working. The error I received when starting BITS manually is "WIndows could not start the
Backgroun Intelligent Transfer Service on local computer. For more information, review the system event log.If this is a non-Microsoft
service, contact the service vendor. and refer to service specific error code -2147024713"
I cant t find a specific BITS-only fix from Microsoft.
Can someone suggest a fix so that I can run Windows Update successfully or perhaps there is a specific order in which I may manually install
updates from the Windows Catalog Website ?
