Greetings! I hope that someone can help me with this, I've lost a lot of hair over the past few days!
Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 32bit
Fixing a laptop for a friend. A Samsung R530 had a failing 500gb hard drive. We bought a new WD 1tb hard drive, then used Spinrite on option 2, to get the old drive in a useable state. Then fitted both drives into my pc & used Acronis True Image 2015 to clone the drives. The old drive popped up a message several times during the clone about impending failure. Installing the new drive into the laptop, it failed to boot. However I was then able to run the Samsung recovery utility from the BIOS start screen & refreshed the Windows installation. Afterwards the drive booted ok. Windows Update failed to work & I spent a day or so fixing that. (Updating the Intel drivers fixed it.) Now I find that the BITS service won't run. I have spent a day so far trying all sorts of fixes with no luck, so am asking for help.
Virus scan run using Malwarebytes which found nothing.
All dependencies are running & the BITS service properties page appears to be correct.
Error on manually starting BITS service:
Windows could not start the Background Intelligent Transfer Service on Local Computer. For more information, review the system event log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service-vendor and refer to service-specific error code -2147024894.
Event log id 16392
The BITS service failed to start. Error 0x80070002.
Event log id 7024
The Background Intelligent Transfer Service service terminated with service-specific error %%-2147024894.
No other errors in the event log apart from the two BITS entries which repeat.
Can anyone help please?
