This may be the result of a virus I had sometime last year, but I did not have Windows Update on my computer.
I ran the MS repair tool and it did seem to fix the Windows Updater, but while it can now LOOK for the updates AND
it can tell me what updates I'm missing, it cannot actually install them.
Instead I get Error Code 80246008.
Clicking the code brings to me several "solutions" in Win7's help section, but none of them got me anywhere.
Researching this, it seems I'm missing Background Intelligent Transfer Service.
I'm wondering if I should try uninstalling then reinstalling Service Pack 1. I think if I can get BITS back, everything'll be honkey dorey.
