Hi trickshot63 :)

What kind of Registry issues do you have? Depending of what they are, using a tool like Windows Repair All-In-One could be more dangerous than anything.

Cannot get bits to start...keep getting the error "Windows could not start the Background Intelligent Transfer Service on local computer".  The error number it gives me is 2147024894.

Stay the heck away from these types of products!  <---- Best advice we can give you.

Are you using Norton?  What OS is it that you have?  Do you have more 'tools' like that in your computer?  Why do you say you have Registry issues and meaning what, what sort of "issues"?

Best idea for you in regard to the Registry is stay out of it.

Have you run Malwarebytes?

Cheers,

Depending on just how comfortable you are with this type of instruction.....

 

I would advise you to Create a System Restore Point....and also a Registry backup FIRST

 

System Restore for Windows 8......HERE

 

Registry Backup HERE  (Download and run Erunt...it will save a registry backup to your document folder)

 

 

 

 This section from kb article kb910337

 

Windows could not start the Background Intelligent Transfer service on the 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. (0x80070002)

If you receive this error message, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
  2. Locate the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\BackupRestore\FilesNotToBackup
  3. If the registry subkey exists, go to step 4. If the registry subkey does not exist, create the registry subkey. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Right-click Backup Restore, point to New, and then click Key.
    2. Type FilesNotToBackup, and then press ENTER.
  4. Quit Registry Editor.
  5. Click Start, click Run, type services.msc, and then click OK.
  6. Double-click Background Intelligent Transfer Service.
  7. In the General tab, click Start.

Something, likely malware, has caused this.  BITS won't just quit for no reason.  There are 2 or 3 Services that must be running not, just BITS

 

Might, also, reset Winsock.

 

Can try the FIX-it tool & or DIM.

I use it in the Am I Infected section to repair issues caused by infections. Windows Repair All-In-One is basically an automaton of manual repairs combined into one application, so it must be used with care - but it is unlikely to cause issues, if any.

Using Tweaking.com - Windows Repair

Windows Repair All-In-One now offers to repair reparse points and environment variables as well. And the backup choice has been expanded to include Tweaking.com Registry Backup as primary method.

Just FYI, the author of UltraVirusKiller has been found to be stealing databases from AdwCleaner and Junkware Removal Tool. I wouldn't trust it.
