top google response "error (your number)

The asterisk means it's a windows system error. Step one.

second response, same google search:

It seems it is a registry error. In this case probably "funky" software did it to the registry. Step two.

About background intelligent transfer service itself: step three

Hmmm, it seems windows updates won't work with this disfunctional.
1. it's a favorite target of malware authors since no updates=no defense against their particular crap
2. might be a flaw that exists in non-genuine windows OS copies, now that MS is taking action(s)

Summarizing steps 1-3:

The registry is probably not allowing the normal action, and this could be caused by one or more of a few things: bad software, bad malware, or a system file redirection for another reason.

So, rather than say the answer is to go into your registry and make a correction,
best thing to do would be:

1. try setting it to automatic, not manual.
See if it will allow the change.
Then reboot and see if the change "held".

One way is to try this:
start > control panel > administrative services > computer management > services & applications > services. Click on BITS, then from the context menu choose properties ( rt.click > properties)

General tab ... confirm this is the path ... C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs

Then where it now says "manual", choose the dropdown item "automatic", then "apply" & finally "OK".

Do a reboot and repeat to see what happened, then test whatever gave you the error in the first place.

I'd likely try a windows update visit, too.

2. If problems or compromises still exist, post a HJT log, we can rule out malware, or discover it
by analysis and you can correct what is causing that problem.
