Hi all! I'm sorry if I'm posting in the wrong place, but I've been stuck with this issue for a while now. Last July, I came here and got help to remove a rootkit off of my computer (Great help, by the way!), but seeing as it had infected my services.exe, part of the fix was to get a new copy of it, or something around those lines; this will come in to play later, I think. Anyway, its been a LONG time, my last update whenever I try running windows update, it runs for a bit and tries to receive the updates, but then stops and displays a message saying it failed to update, and gives me the error code of 80246008. I've looked this up, and I see that it possibly has something to do with the background intelligent transfer service. The thing is, I would just like some help here on what I should do. Could someone maybe help me out with what's going wrong with the updates? Any help is greatly appreciated. (Also sorry for the wall of text).

For reference on what I did to remove the virus: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic459573.html/page__p__2754386#entry2754386

Please download Farbar Service Scanner Download Link and run it on the computer with the issue.
  • Make sure the following options are checked:

    • Internet Services
    • Windows Firewall
    • System Restore
    • Security Center/Action Center
    • Windows Update
    • Windows Defender
  • Press "Scan".
  • It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.
  • Please copy and paste the log to your reply.

It looks like you have one registry key corrupted.

Following steps involve registry editing. Please create new restore point before proceeding!!!
How to:
XP - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/948247
Vista and Seven - http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/create-a-restore-point-for-windows-vistas-system-restore/


Download Seven.zip file from here: http://www.smartestcomputing.us.com/files/download/9-registry-network-keys/
Unzip the file.
You'll find several files inside.
Double click on bits.reg file and confirm the prompt.
Restart computer.
Post new FSS log.
