Getting the error in the thread title when attempting to update my Dell Inspiron laptop. When checking out the error it sends me to procedures with the Background Intelligent Transfer Service and the Windows Event Log service.

The Windows Event Log service is up and running.

The BITS service shows as being stopped. When I click the button to start it - it starts, the slider goes part way across the start window and then I get a error message
The Background Intelligent Transfer Service service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some Services stop automatically if the are not in use by other services or programs.
Help!
