BITS?

by eddie11013 / January 19, 2006 12:47 AM PST

Just wondering. When I set BITS, Background Intelligent Transfer Service to automatic & started using services.msc, after a while, maybe days later, it goes back to manual & stopped. When I look at http://www.theeldergeek.com/background_intelligent_transfer_service.htm it seems to suggest that I could set it either way. Since I never seem to get windows update automatically, although I do get them manually, I just wanted to try this setting to see if it would work for me. . Running win xp pro, sp2, dell dimension 2350, 1 GB mem, 2.0 GHz, cable modem. Usually run daily auto scans with MSAB & AVG7. Also have AdawareSE, Spybot, Spyware Blaster.
Any idea's.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
Eddie

Look in msconfig

Start-Run-type=msconfig "Ok" Under services tab uncheck BITS and it should not re-invent itself.

That didn't seem to work. After I went to msconfig/OK/services tab/uncheck BITS and then rebooted, I went to services.msc and BITS was now disabled and stopped. Msconfig still showed BITS as unchecked. So, I went back to services.msc/auto/started and msconfig/OK/services tab and checked BITS.
Any other ideas, Retired
