Finally, Windows update breaking in XP after a fresh install may be fixed. Here is the solution below:

October 19, 2013

I spent three late evening dealing with Windows Update failing on clean installs of both XP Pro and XP home on this older Compaq Presario I am restoring. The issue was BITS (Background Intelligent Transfer Service) kept being hosed by one of the updates. I tried darn near everything. I finally found that may be the solution here: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_xp-windows_update/windows-update-died-tried-many-solutions-still/7d5ec39f-086f-471f-a713-b195d4c4b24d

A poster named TheWraith517 offered a handy solution to restore the BITS registry items.

Here is his post (long, but worth it).

OMG lol ive fixed it, gawd how stupid was that : /

i was reading about a Windows vista issue with bits, and a windows 7, both had reg tweek ideas, couldn’t find an XP modification REG file so i made one..

if anyone can’t find BITS in their services and it shows up as this

@%SystemRoot%\system32\qmgr.dll,-1000

and your unable to start the service

run this as a .reg file 🙂

reboot afterwards and bits should automaticly now be running

for Windows XP Only….

make a text file, paste the code in below, save it, right click select rename, name as bitfix.reg then right click and merge with registry (make sure no lines have odd characters at the end or spaces
