Windows update & BITS

Question: Windows update & BITS

Windows 8/8.1
 
Hi
 
I check for my updates periodically which are set to 'check for updates but let me decide' and
I also turn on 'Windows Update & Bits' in 'services.msc' which I turn off after every check so I have
nothing running in the background, however, if I recheck a short time after I find that both services have
been re-activated again. After several attempts I manage to turn them off.
Anyone know why, and how to control this??
 
Cheers

Preferred Solution: Windows update & BITS

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I've have tried to download the latest update from Windows, but I get the error code of 0x80246008, meaning the BITS wasn't on. After trying to turn on the BITS, I get the error code 998. I have looked on some sites and I can't seem to find the answer. If there is an easy way to fix it and that I can get updating again, that would be great.

Any help would be appreciated. :)

So first off, I was infected with the Sirefef.Trojan which I got helped with, but now I have another problem.

My windows update doesn't fully work as this pops up as it is about to download updates "Windows Update Error 80246008".

Now the other problem is that in services.msc, the file BITS does not work. Before this it was not there so I had to manually install it. When I try to start BITS in services manually I get the error "error 2: the system cannot find the file specified".

How do I fix the BITS issue as I need that to work for windows update to work I presume?

Thank you

My Windows Update has refused to download updates since Nov. 1, and it currently reads that there are 14 important updates pending. I can't recall if I downloaded something that may have caused this, but all research indicates that it's spyware-related.

Research also pointed me in the direction of my BITS service possibly being disabled; when I went into services I found that it was not only disabled, it was nonexistent. All searches regarding this problem have turned up results for XP, which have had no result in Vista. I have no restore point to go back to, and I'm started to get rather frustrated (not to mention worried).

Any help on getting the BITS service reinstalled, and hopefully, Windows Update working again?

For the record, the error code I'm getting is 80246008.

Edit: Automatic Updates service is also missing.

Thanks in advance.

Hi! So today I bought a new Wireless Xbox360 controller receiver for my Gaming PC, and I couldn't install the drivers! I got code 37 or something but it turns out it's because my Windows Update was not working. When promted to 'check for updates' It would give the message:

"Windows Update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running. You may need to restart your computer"

So I checked services.msc and both wuauserv and Background Intelligence Transfer... were not there.

Therefore I assumed there were some corrupt or missing registry files -or maybe a permission issue-, and I downloaded the approriate .reg files to patch them up; wuauserv worked fine but the BITS reg file gave the following error message:

"Cannot import C:\users\pc\appdata\local\Temp\Rar%DI00.653\bits-service-for-7-8vista.reg: Not all data was successfully written to the registry. Some keys are open by the system or other processes."

And even though wuauserv succesfully imported to the registry it still gives the same error message as Paragraph 2.

I tried a solution of launching regedit through PSTools and importing the reg file manually however it still would not work as it gave another generic error message.

So at this point i'm completely stumped and don't know what to do; I'm not sure if I even identified the problem correctly or tried the right solutions! So here I am, asking for help can some computer wizard please come help me out?

Hi,
As the title suggests both these services are missing from my system.
Its a 64 bit win 7 sony vaio. Have tried the tutorial in this site, microsoft detection tool and various other methods available on the net in the last 8 hours.
Standalone installer fails saying the specified service doesn't exist as an installed service.
Fixit tool fails saying you don't have permissions to start BITS.

Have checked registry and registry entries exist for both BITS and update.
Read somewhere to create the service by using sc. On trying that got an error of CreateService Failed 5. Access is denied.
Am totally at my wits end now. Would appreciate any help.

Answer:No Windows Update,no BITS, a lot of malware

You forgot to run MGtools from the READ & RUN ME FIRST.

You need to run Malwarebytes again and this time have it fix all the issues it finds. Your log in the Software Forum shows nothing was fixed.

Also run Hitman Pro again and activate the 30 day free trial license. Then have it cleanup all the Malware and Potential Unwanted Programs it reported.

No reboot your PC and after reboot, run new scans with both Hitman Pro and then Malwarebytes and attach the new logs.

Also run MGtools.exe from the READ & RUN ME FIRST and attach the log that was requested.

Hi Everybody -
I have 8.1 & I'm the Administrator (& only user). For the last few months I haven't been able to get my Windows Updates to download. They look to be downloading and installing but after quite awhile they give me a 80246008 error. My research tells me that I need to have BITS running. (For those who know as little as I do it's the Background Intelligent Transfer Service).
So I went to service.msc which shows that BITS is running on automatic. (I also saw something online about COM+EVENT being a possible problem. That is also running on automatic. Then I saw possible problems with Remote Procedure Call. That is running on automatic).

I like to check my Resource Monitor and found that BITS is not running and I can't get it to run. Windows Update is running in processes and is pulling 25% CPU. I never noticed because my computer didn't slow down. I can't find COM+EVENT in the Monitor. Windows Update is Wuauserv and next to netsvcs.

So off to Process Explorer. Under a svchost.exe I found 13 items in the one containing Windows Update. It's also pulling 25%. I can list the other 12 programs there if you need to know them. I didn't look for BITS since it's a service.
So BITS is running in services.msc and not in my Resource Monitor. I keep trying to start it there but it won't start. In researching this I only found instances where BITS needed to be turned on. I found nothing that said BITS could be running in some places and not others.

I've been struggling with my computer for months. When trying to download Windows updates it takes forever while it says it is preparing to install. Finally I get a big red X and the error code80246008. Windows says click here for the fix and then of course says it can't help. I realized that the svchost (netsvcs) that includes Windows Update is 25% of CPU usage. If I turn off Windows Update the CPU goes back to about 5%. I have so much room on my drive it wasn't noticeably moving more slowly. I know that there are huge MBs of updates. I've been doing this for a few months now and I can't remember how I got onto it but I think it's BITS. BITS is under the same svchost along with update.

my desktop is Dell XPS 730. it currently using Vista 32 bits. Everything runs very slow and none of games are runnable due frames dropping, skipping, and freezing even after I installed new Hard Drive. I decided upgrade to Windows 7 64 bits would help with running minecraft game without issue.

I downloaded Windows 7 USB DVD download tool and Windows 7 64 bits ISO. it installed into flash drive successful but it came with bootsect error. So I looked around for it and found here 32-Bit BootSect

I downloaded "bootsect7600x86.zip". I right clicked and clicked on Properties and clicked unblock then applied and clicked ok. Then opened and I only find Bootsect exe file, nothing else. so I clicked that and command prompts came up and disappeared really instant and nothing ever happened. What am I missing? I also need Window 7 64 bits for my laptop after new HDD arrive. Just needed to make USB bootable somehow.

EDIT: I did right clicked on that exe file and did not see "run as admin"

EDIT2: Forgot to add, do I need to have product key code? Im upgrading my desktop from vista 32 bit to windows 7 64 bit

Answer:Upgrade to Windows 7 home perm 64 bits from Vista 32 bits

The term is bit, not bits

Use WintoBootic to put the iso on the flash drive, it works perfectly everytime.

Where are you downloading the iso from, I would download it again and check the size when you`re done.

Last night there was a power failure (lightning strike) while I was running Windows Update. Today when I run Windows Update I get Error 80246008, and I am unable to start the Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS), which gives service-specific error code -2147024713.

What I have done so far to try to solve the problem:

1. Run sfc /scannow, which reports no errors.

2. Deleted the contents of the C:\ProgramData\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader folder.

3. Run Microsoft Fix It 50202 in Aggressive mode, which is supposed to solve this problem. It reports that it is unable to start the BITS service.

I'm about out of ideas, so some help would be appreciated.

Answer:Windows Update error; cannot start BITS service

I solved the problem. First, I did a system restore from the last restore point prior to the power failure. But that wasn't the only thing necessary. I then ran Microsoft Fix it 50123, which apparently recreated the damaged files in the C:\ProgramData\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader folder and successfully started the BITS service. And that seemed to take care of it; Windows Update ran without error. The only trouble with these Fix its and wizards is that you don't entirely know what they do.

Hello there,

I'm wondering if someone can help me.I was not able to run Windows update. I was getting "Windows Update cannot currently check for updates because the service is not running"
I finally ran a Microsoft utility which errored out but still allowed me to run Windows update. At least I thought it did.

Now I'm getting "WindowsUpdate_80246008".

I tried a couple of things online and it appears that I'm missing the BITS service altogether. I'm not a big registry expert and it appears there may be a problem there. I also saw another post indicating that the qmgr.dll file could be corrupted.

I'm attaching the result of what services are currently started on my PC as well as the registry setting for BITS as indicated in another post. Not sure what other information you need.

Hey,
as the title says, I find myself in a dilema..

It started when I decided I wanted to put a total of 4GB of RAM in my computer. The problem is that I have Windows XP x86 (32-bits) installed.
Then, a few friends of mine adviced me to get rid of this old Windows XP (32-bits), get the total of 4GB of RAM and install Windows 7 x64.

My CPU's architecture supports x64 systems, as I have 4 cores. My main problem, is that I would have to reinstall all my programs, applications and drivers (because I have the 32-bits-versions installed) and that if I stay with my 32-bits-XP system, it would only read 3 to 3.5GB of RAM aprox.

In response to this, a friend told me that Windows 7 x64 wouldn't cause compatibility issues with those 32-bit programas, applications and drivers. However, if I'd like to get the best performance, I would have to download/get the x64-compatible-versions..

To sum it up, I would really like if you experts could help me and get me out of this dilema. Is it true what my friends mentioned me? Should I change and get the new Windows 7 x64? Which would be the downsides and which the upsides?

I would also like to mention that I am a still and motion graphics designer, and that the latest softwares for that (for instance all Adobe CS4) have come out x64.This would definitely be a plus if I change to Windows 7 x64, right?

Thank you very, very much.. Really.
Best regards,
Chris.

Hi!

I got really serious problem with running windows update (WU) and BITS. They aren't listed in Services and when I try to turn them on using cmd (of course with Administrator privileges) the message is "access denied". I even tried using separate administrator account - " access denied". I tried everything that helped other people with the same problem.

During last week I tried a lot of various ways to deal with this problem, none of them helped.
1 month ago I got a malware attack, which I successfully(apparently not) got rid of.

I hope someone can help me!


Ps. Command I used to turn on BITS: sc create BITS binpath= "c:\windows\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs" Start= delayed-auto depend= EventSystem/RpcSs
WU:sc create wuauserv binpath= "c:\windows\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs" Start= delayed-auto depend= RpcSs

also regsvr32 wuaueng.dll ( and some other commands like regscvs32 wuapi.dll, wups.dll wups2.dll wuwebv.dll wucltux.dll )

Hey guys. I was working on a computer.. had to format and re-install Windows XP. I got most Windows Updates installed, but there are still a handful that won't install. I found out that it was probably because the BITS service wasn't running. I went to turn it on, and it wasn't even there. I tried to run sfc /scannow. It ran, but when it was finished, it just disappeared and didn't produce a log. Is there another way to install BITS?
 

Answer:No BITS, Can't Update

Clarify... So when you click CtlPnl->Admin Tools, then click Services and scroll down. Do you not see the name Background Intelligent Transfer Service?

Hello Tech Support Guy Nation,

So I have an issue with getting a laptop hooked onto the router signal. The router is a brand spankin new Linksys EA4500 and the laptop is an IBM which is running Win XP (not sure of SP version as it is a customer's comp. at a hotel I run). Anyway, the error message I am encountering is:

The network password needs to be 40 bits r 104 bits depending on your network configuration. This can be entered as 5 or 13 ascii characters or 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters

At first I thought is was my router password since it contained a $ symbol so I changed it to only letters and numbers but still didn't work. I have never encountered this error message on any laptops and no other rooms have been affected. Thank you as always for the the knowledge...
 

Answer:Solved: Error Message:"The network password needs to be 40 bits r 104 bits depending.

You are using WPA or WPA2 encryption and the laptop--because of the lack of at least service pack 2, incorrect wireless driver, or old wireless adapter--does not support WPA(2).

I am rebuilding a new machine for work use....and I am going through all the updates. I'm currently sitting at SP1 for XP Pro, installing all the necessary updates. I'm holding off on SP2 for now on this machine because it gave me problems before (hence the rebuild). Everything was going fine, until I loaded the BITS 2.0 update. It was the only update I installed, and when I rebooted, I get a long delay after logging in with my domain account. This delay was not present at all through countless reboots until loading this update. Anyone else encounter this or have suggestions? If more info is needed, just ask.

Hi All - My Windows updates on 8.1 will not install. It acts like it is downloading and installing but it finally gives me error 80246008. After some searching I discovered this means that I have to turn on BITS (Background Intelligent Transfer Service for those who know as little as I do). (BTW, I'm the Administrator & the only one who uses the computer). I went to services.msc and it shows that BITS is running on automatic. Something I read online while researching this said that COM+EVENT might be related. It is also running on automatic.

So off to the Resource Monitor (resmon). BITS shows that it is stopped and I can't start it from there. Windows update (in Processes) is pulling 25% of my CPU. I never noticed because my computer hasn't slowed down.

Now to Process Explorer. Windows update showed as Wuauserv and netsvcs in the Resource Monitor. I found the svchost containing Windows Update in the Process Explorer. It's pulling 25% CPU. There are 13 other items under that svchost if you need them. Since BITS is a service I didn't look for it.

Windows Update and COM+Event are running in the Task Manager.

I'm not the most knowledgeable person about computers. I've tried things I've found online but couldn't find anything that discussed BITS showing that it's running in some places and not in others. One fix involved a command prompt. My command prompt is this: C:\Users\Dawn D> which seems a weird prompt to me.

Everytime I start my computer, after a few moments there comes an error message, which states something like (I have a finish OS) "Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy service stopped working." Sometimes it says something about BITS, and sometimes "Host process for windows services stopped working and was closed."

Hi everybody -
I have 8.1 & I'm the Administrator (& only user). For the last few months I haven't been able to get my Windows Updates to download. They look to be downloading and installing but after awhile they give me an 80246008 error. My research tells me that I need to have BITS running. (For those who know as little as I do it's the Background Intelligent Transfer Service). So I went to service.msc which shows that BITS is running on automatic. (I also saw something online about COM+EVENT being a possible problem. That is also running on automatic.)

I like to check my Resource Monitor and found that BITS is not running and I can't get it to run. Windows Update is running in processes and is pulling 25% CPU. I never noticed because my computer didn't slow down. I can't find COM+EVENT in the Monitor. Windows Update is Wuauserv and next to netsvcs.
So off to Process Explorer. Under a svchost.exe I found 13 items in the one containing Windows Update. It's also pulling 25%. I can list the other 12 programs if you need to know them. I didn't look for BITS since it's a service.
So BITS is running in services.msc and not in my Resource Monitor. I keep trying to start it there but it won't start. In researching this I only found instances where BITS needed to be turned on. I found nothing that said BITS could be running in some places and not others.

Hey all,
Windows updates and Microsoft Security Essentials won't update, Windows Update giving the error code 80246008. Looks like cause is the Background Intelligent Transfer Service is unable to start.

Error when trying to start the service:





Quote:
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


Things I've done:
1. Ran sfc /scannow (no problems reported)
2. All steps here: Windows Update Error 80246008 in Windows 7 - Fix
3. Attempted this: You receive an error message when you try to download updates from the Windows Update Web site or from the Microsoft Update Web site, or when you try to start the Background Intelligent Transfer Service
But when doing "regsvr32 qmgr.dll" results in an error:





Quote:
The module "qmgr.dll" was loaded but the entry-point DllRegisterServer was not found.
Make sure that "qmdr.dll" is a valid DLL or OCX file and then try again.


Any ideas?

Answer:Update error 80246008 with BITS unable to start

Ok problem solved. I've seen this issue around the net in a lot of places with no real fixes, so I'll post mine.

What was happening was that BITS was unable to start. Apparently "-2147024894" translates to an "Access is Denied" error.

The folder "C:\Users\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader" seemed to have permissions issues that have plauged the rest of my Windows 7 experience. Thus, I fixed the problem using the "Take Ownership" program from these forums on that folder. Take Ownership.

The BITS service was able to start, and I can now download and install Windows Updates.

I hope that this information will help others with this problem.

This is a rather unsual error message from Windows 7, that cannot even run 16-bits programs, quote:

"Too many other files are currently in use by 16-bit programs. Exit one or more 16-bit programs, or increase the value of files in your Config.sys file."

The only time that this issue shows up is when trying to run a program as administrator from within my standard user account. The "Run as..." could be initiated either manually, or by running a program that requires elevated access rights to the system, such as starting an installation as a standard user.

The error is seemed to be triggered by the UAC, or more accurately the "consent.exe" file that actually locks up the screen and nothing can be accessed. It seems that the system is waiting for input for the UAC, clicking anywhere on the screen results in the typical error sound but nothing else. The "ctrl-alt-del" does bring up a list, selecting log out pops up the quoted error message during the logoff process. Logging back in with the same UID seems normal, until the "Run as..." initiated and the system seems locked again. Rebooting the system clears up this error, but it does come back in an irregular interval. The timeframe could be from an hour, or more, on some days it does not come back at all.

While Windows 7 64-bit does not have a "config.sys" file, one has been added to "C:\" that contains:

I installed Autocad 2010 in window 7(64 bits). I couldn't install because Autocad software software is 32 bits. Window 7 is 64 bits. So it couldn't not install. So I would like to know how to install 32 bits software in 64 bits window 7.

Answer:how to install 32 bits software in 64 bits window 7

32 bit software will run on 64 bit Windows 7 without any special steps being taken. Windows 7 64 bit actually maintains a 32 bit registry in order to accommodate 32 bit programmes.If you cannot install Autocad the problem is likely to be something more that the 32/64 bit difference. There is the possibility that it wouldn't even install on 32 bit Widows 7 and it is the OS itself that is the problem.You need to contact Autocad and see what they say about the problem, after all they know there own software better than anyone else.Stuart

I have been trying to resolve this issue since Friday with no great progress.

The main issue is that a program on the laptop needs the Background Intelligent Transfer Service set to Automatic start, however when you try to change this setting, I get an Access Denied error (Error 5), I also get a similar access denied error when trying to manually start the service.

I have done the following 'general fixes' with no success; chkdsk /r, sfc /scannow, windows update repair tool and windows repair.
Other things I've tried:

Setting permissions in the registry for the BITS entries to give full access using the user's account.
Setting a password on the Administrator account.
Repairing BITS using guide on another forum.
Start the service from Administrator account (in safe-mode) and new Temp account (with admin rights).
Precautionary virus & spyware scan as I've read that Vundo virus can cause problems like this, albeit not found.
Other information that may help:

I get the same error on the Automatic Updates service.

Is that in the same category as 8 Bits/channel? Or is it something totally different.I need to know more about colours.Thanks.

Essentially, bits per channel represents colour depth, the higher the bits per channel, the higher the range of distinct colours. This should explain better than I could click hereAnd when your finished reading that click here for answers to your colour channels query.

Hello:

We plan to buy several laptops and desktop preloaded with XP and most of them will have at least 8 GB of memory.

From what I have read XP 32 bits cannot access more than 4 GB. Is this true? What would happen if I install 8 GB on an XP 32 bits machine?

Should we go ahead with 32 bits or 64 bits?

I've heard that the 64 bits laptop drivers are kinda expensive.

I'm not sure if all of our existing applications (i.e. antivirus) installed on our existing xp 32 bits machines could be installed on a 64 bits machine with no problems.

Or would we need to purchase the 64 bit versions?

Thanks and help is greatly appreciated.

Answer:Windows XP 32 or 64 bits?

it is true 32 bit will only see about 3 gigs, however, companies are not beyond selling more than what is needed for the sake of a sale. It is done all the time.

drivers are free. Just go the specific laptops manufacturers website and see if they have 64 bit drivers, if they do, all you have to do is download and install - once you install a 64 bit os. However if they don't then there is a good chance your computer would not support 64 bit os for the specific operating system.

64 is the norm now. generally speaking 64 bit computers will support either 32 or 64 bit drivers and software.

one other thing to consider, if you want to upgrade from 32 to 64 bit, you will have to do a complete install of the os. You cannot upgrade.

howdy Leduc,

If you right click the "my computer" Icon and click properties it will tell you right in that window what version you are using..

As for which one is better? That depends. If you are using a 64 bit cpu like an AMD 64 then the 64 it will work. If not then it will not work. Another easy way is to know what type of cpu you have. If it is not a 64 bit cu then you cannot have a 64 bit os..

What type of cpu do you have?

Hi,

I need your advices about wheter I should install Seven ultimate 32 or 64 bits.
My configuration is a bit oldish and I am not going to upgrade it.
- Gigabyte GA-K8NS
- Sempron64 3100+
- 3x1GB of DDR PC3200
Most of the application I use are so far only available in 32 bits.
All my hardware have 64 bits driver.
Got only 3GB of RAM so it is fully addressed by Seven 32

Do I get any better performance by having Seven 64
and use mostly 32 bit applications ?

Answer:Windows seven 32 or 64 bits

If your computer is old and most of the programs would not run with 64 bit, I would stay with 32. The performace increase would be marginal, at best.

i guys, this is 1st post on these forums, which i like a lot, especially the reviews, but anyways im having a hard time to decide which OS im gonna run on my new rig.....i already have all the components......what i do usually with my pc's is encode dvd's and audio....and especially i play games a lot.
these are my spec:

CPU: q6600 g0 stepping
MOBO: EVGA 680i NF68T1
VIDEO CARDS: EVGA 8800gts 640mb ( im waiting for the other one to run SLI )
HDD: WD Raptor 150 GB SATA Hard Drive ( for booting and for all my software ) and a WD SATA 2 500 GB for storage
RAM: Patriot Extreme Performance 4GB(2 x 2GB) ddr2 800mhz

i know i have to be on a 64 bits OS ( cause im using 4gigs on ram ) but im trying to decide which one ?
i have been researching this for a lot of time, and still i cant decide.....i have been reading that vista lets the government spy on your pc, that uses a lot of ram when its on idle, compatibility issues, not stable.........and about xp 64 bits, we all know that xp is already the past and that we gotta move to new things but i like to hear from the experts on this community what do you think ? do you have any recommendations, any thoughts ?

thanks in advance for all your help
 

Answer:xp 64 bits or vista 64 bits ?

You say you play games a lot. I'd say go with Vista because of that. DirectX10 is going to be mainstream before long.

Please forgive me if this had been posted before. I searched here and didn't learn enough in the previous posts. So here is my inquiry.

Been using Vista Home Premium for a while with no problem. However, I now have a copy of retail Ultimate 64 bits. I read that there are many benefits besides being able to see all 4Gig of rams with 64 bits. As the process only be done by clean installation, I would like to know how, if I can at all, to back up all the stuffs that I've been using so I can "restore" after I switch to 64 bit instead of redo everything. I'll be greatly appreciate if you can explain to me step by step.

My US Robotic dial up modem only has 32 bits driver; please suggest a good one that work with 64 bits.

Please let me know anything significant I need to know before I switch?

Thank you!

Answer:Need help in 32 bits to 64 bits switching...

Hi Bruce2,

Welcome to the forum.

Since you are switching from 32 bit to 64 bit Vista, the safest route is to just backup any files you do not want to lose to a CD/DVD. You can just transfer them back when done installing the 64 bit. There is just to much of a difference to do a complete backup and restore between the two bit version with your programs and installers.

If you would like to make it even easier, have all of your programs and 64 bit drivers installation files on DVD as well.

This points (most likely) to your hard drive.

Run CHKDSK /R /F from an elevated (Run as adminstrator) Command Prompt. Please do this for each hard drive on your system.
When it tells you it can't do it right now - and asks you if you'd like to do it at the next reboot - answer Y (for Yes) and press Enter. Then reboot and let the test run. It may take a while for it to run, but keep an occasional eye on it to see if it generates any errors. See "CHKDSK LogFile" below in order to check the results of the test.

I wanted to see if you can help me with a problem that I have with my computer. First the specs of my computer:

core i5, intel dh55hc motherboard
2 modules of 4gb ram, corsair model CMX4GX3M1A1333C9
windows 7 ultimate 64 bits

I'm getting some bsod in random times, although now I see that there is a pattern... for example:

after a day of full working let's say 14-16 hours, then I start to close all the windows and when I'm going to shutdown then appears a bsod... so, it seems that it's in that point when I'm going to shut down...

I run a memtest with many hours let's say 12 hours and nothing so I'm not sure if it's a memory related problem...

We do need the actual DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

It is almost impossible to spot trends from a single DMP file so if you have more than one please upload them. If you only have one please wait until the computer crashes again then upload both.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

Hi

I have a simple question that I haven't been able to find the answer to by searching, so I'm hoping someone here knows.

Is there a way to tell if a Windows 7 installation is 32 bit or 64 bit simply by looking in the install folders/files? The reason I ask is that I have a few USB sticks that I made into bootable Windows 7 installations. It took hours, and I don't really want to redo it if I can help it. I didn't label which was 32 bit and 64 bit. I realize I could install them on a virtual machine and tell that way... but it'd be much easier if I could simply browse them and know that way somehow.

looks old and needs updating ?

when i did a search on the MSI site it came up with your laptop as a VR705 , does that sound right according to your stickers ?

your dmp file won't run as the symbols won't load probably because you have a .gdr patch on the NT kernel applied by microsoft ............

Hi, I have a Travelmate B115-M and I have upgraded from Windows 8.1 Pro to Windows 10. The problem is that it automatically upgraded to Windows 10 32 bits. The drivers from Acer website are all 64 bits. I have tried it 2 times, the second time doing a clean install, but now I can't return to Windows 8.1 because it doesn't show the option anymore. So, how can I upgrade from Windows 10 32 bits to Windows 64 bits? Thanks in advance, John Lewis

Hello,

I'm planning on getting Windows 7 64 bits. I was wondering if I can install this on a non-64 bits processor? (the rig in my signature)
A tech told me I could run it without a problem, but he is also a seller for a large business equipment so I think he's more of a seller than a computer expert.

And if I can't, any suggestions on a good 64 bits processor? I don't especially need a beast, I'm infographist and I need to run the Adobe Suite CS5.

Thanks!

Answer:Windows 7 64 bits on this system ?

Hello everyone!

Yesterday I was able to upgrade for free to Windows 10 from Windows 7. And to be honest I'm don't really like to upgrade, I always want to do a fresh install when I have to change my operating system. And from what I read on some blogs, there are issues with the activation of Windows 10 that can only be fixed by upgrading to Windows 10 and then from there to make a bootable USB using their Windows 10 Tool.
So I did that. I upgraded from Windows 10 using their app and now I want to make the USB stick for a fresh install. The problem is that today, when I put Windows 10 to download, for some reason my house ran out of power for few seconds and for some reason. Exactly then. What are the chances? Anyway, I won't go into details, let's just asume it is the same thing as running out of batery on a laptop.
I restarted the computer and tried to continue the thing. But then there was a problem. When I re-run the Windows 10 Download Tool I got this error: https://i.imgur.com/EUtHfio.png
I looked on C:\ and found these 2 folders (https://i.imgur.com/2RTIgTE.png) that includes, I guess, the .iso with Windows 10? https://i.imgur.com/0R76Sm6.png
So I tried to delete that folder and start over with the Tool. But I couldn't delete the folder because it was used in a program. Then I found that the program was a service, which is BITS (Background Intelligent Transfer Service). I stopped the service and managed to delete the folders and then i tried to run the Tool again. It ... Read more

Answer:BITS keeps downloading Windows 10 in background

I ran into something similar and just reset WU. I think you're going to have to purge the SoftwareDistribution folder to get rid of the issue.
