There is a suggested fix here : http://www.alegsa.co...00x80070424.php

Can't vouch for it.

If that doesn't work, Open the Start Menu, click Run, and type Services.msc. Find Background Intelligent Transfer Service and change it's startup to Automatic. Then, turn it on if it isn't and try again.

Edit: Try turning your firewall off.

I can't find any Background Intelligent Transfer Service to change, I am running windows 2000, is this only an XP thing? Also, turning off my firewall did nothing.

Did you try the other fix 1069 suggested? That one was the first thing I saw.

oops, I had missed that one. That fix along with a few other I found in my event logs have all been done and everything seems to be working great now. Thanks for all the help everyone!
