My windows update says it has 55 important updates but when I attempt to update it says that the updates were not installed and gives the error code 80246008.

The windows help and support tells me I need to change or restart the background intelligent transfer service (BITS) but it isn't in the list of services that it directs me to.

The microsoft fixit and automated troubleshooter fixes have both failed to help and I'm a bit worried this is a symptom of a real underlying problem.

Any help would be much appreciated,

Cheers

Thank you, one of the replies on that page sorted it out for me. The downloads are working again.

Cheers
