MS updates, BITS, and more...

Monkey Proof

Recommended Posts

i have also posted this at MSFN,...

my BITS service is off and cannot be restarted, and it's affecting MS updates. when i try to restart BITS i get error code 193: 0xc1. i have searched high and low for the last few days looking for a fix. also when i try and open Event Viewer i get another error saying MMC Snap-In cannot be created, same thing with Task Schedular.

oh, when i click on BITS properties while in Services i see that Path to Executable as C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs . is this correct?

i ran the HD test and passed.

other problems that may or may not be related are,

1. WMC will not open

2. HP Total Care Advisor will not open

3. HP Quick Play will not open

4. HP Quick Play hotkeys do not work

If you open Event Viewer (Start > Run > eventvwr) you will be able to see which files were replaced by reading the "Windows File Protection" events.

I like Event Log Explorer™ to manage the Event logs and it works with Vista:


It requires a free Personal license for personal non-commercial use:


I have not been spammed by requesting the free license in the several years I have used Event Log Explorer™.
