Please download Dial-A-Fix.
Unzip the folder found in the archive to a place you can remember. For example: C:\DialAFix
Then follow the steps below.
  • Browse to the folder where you saved Dial-A-Fix.
  • Open Dial-a-fix.exe
  • Tick the following boxes:
    Empty temp folders
    Fix Windows Update
  • In the bottom left press the GO Button.
Note that ticking a box might tick others too. Leave them ticked!

Regards,
Olrik

Yes when starting either of the services I get the same message,

Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified.

Open services.msc and double click on the BITS service, when the properties Window comes up what does it say for the "Path to Executable"?

Follow these steps to fix the problem. First step is to back up the Registry. For what we are going to do creating a system restore point will work. Next you will need to open the Registry Editor. Hold the Windows key and press R, when the Run box opens type in regedit and hit Enter. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\BITS , in the right Window pane look for Imagepath. In the data column it should have the %fystemRoot%\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs , doubleclick on Imagepath and change it to %SystemRoot%\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs. It is exactly the same except change the f to an S Hit Okay, while you are in regedit, check HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001 and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002 for the same settings. Exit regedit and go back to services.msc and check for other "Path to Executable" errors that say the same thing. You will need to make changes to any others that have the %fystemRoot%\system32 error.
