Pour ceux qui n'ont plus les màj win 10 et defender avec l'erreur 80070426... vérifier que le service 'Assistant Connexion avec un compte Microsoft' soit sur Manuel ou Automatique et tout rentre dans l'ordre. A savoir que la plus part des tutos n'en parlent pas et nous emmènent dans des manipulations qui n'en finissent plus et sans résultats.

Did you run it as a system administrator as shown on the video? Thanks.
Yamin Nadeem (1 year ago)
buddy it shows service BITS fails to start. verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system service. then what I can do? pls give me answer

That is usually caused by the BITS service not running. Try this http://youtu.be/yFa-qBAmQiM?list=PLnxXRLSlmSVNjwH-c-OD-B_yaIAqj9mxz

hmmm, I have no updates in "view installed updates" can anyone respond ASAP please?
Euro44 GamingPal99 (1 year ago)
Richard Lloyd I have a gaming rig, but I'm a bit worried if it will delete games, you drivers and other stuff for gaming because sometime antivirus treats computer games like a virus.
Richard Lloyd (1 year ago)
It should be fully functional. If it is not there is a problem but at the least the updates should work. Try doing a full system virus scan to eliminate the possibility of a virus. Here is a video on how I do that https://youtu.be/XXBXALVA7ds?list=PLnxXRLSlmSVN0IznzFbt5RLCl3uc3CCiT Thanks

Here is every video fix I have for this problem. There are 8 in total http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnxXRLSlmSVNjwH-c-OD-B_yaIAqj9mxz Review each one. I suggest starting with the deleting cache files first. If all else fails I also have two videos on how to make a Kaspersky antivrus boot CD or USB key to help disinfect your computer. Here are the links. For the CD http://youtu.be/DFyibq9rja8 . For the USB key http://youtu.be/XXBXALVA7ds I would strongly suggest that you check your machine for viruses and malware too.

kubek (2 years ago)
Sooo... I had a problem because there was no BITS service, so I went to the other video in description and did everything. While starting BITS service got an error about a missing file. But I tried to install FIX50202 anyway. Got an error about not being able to run BITS but I ignored it.And it worked! Windows Update is up and running! I could finally install Visual C++ redistributable I wasn't able to because of service error (forgot number but ends wit 724 I think). So... thank you :)

Richard Lloyd (2 years ago)
I suspect you may have a virus. I suggest backing up any important data before doing anything else. Use these tools to check your system. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnxXRLSlmSVMbLejKUV0qLjPfDf0lxgUT

Richard Lloyd (2 years ago)
The 8 videos I made are the only solutions I have to this problem. If none of them worked you have deeper issues. I suggest doing a full virus scan using these tools https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnxXRLSlmSVMbLejKUV0qLjPfDf0lxgUT if they find a virus or malware clean it out and try again. Thanks.

James Schulz (2 years ago)
I have windows up date... and it still won't update.. I check for updates, and it either freezes up or just goes back to red saying it needs updates.. What has been done to my machine is a switch from 32 bit to 64 bit.. i5 processor.. Asus Mother board.. I think I'm having problems because updates has got stuck several times and I restarted.... so what I did was start to do the updates in 3's -5's -13's with restarts in between... it's telling me that it needed 275 updates, but always stopped working over night while I slept... I'd wake up and it's stuck on update 17 or so... So I knew it wasn't up dating jack.. I used Malware bits, I just paid for Avast, used windows defender they all say it's clean... I have loaded all the drivers my system needs for the AMD radon video card etc... I have reset the bios by removing the battery and changing the polarity to zap it back to normal after trying to over clock it.. it just wouldn't boot up.. so I did that... to start with the reason I went to 64 was because I noticed it wouldn't let me use the 20 gig of RAM I have installed..... they sell you the RAM but never bother to ask you if you are running 64 bit.... (if I knew what I was doing I wouldn't be asking you) SO the other reason was the fact that My system had something really wrong with it before so I went ahead and did the full install of windows 7 32 bit at first, because that's what it had before... ran great! then I noticed the RAM thing, so I bit the bullet and after reinstalling the games I liked. over a few days... I decided to change over to 64 bit, so I could use all that RAM I already had installed.. SOOO now it wants to just lock up for no reason with no warning.. screen goes to ant races..(no picture like a TV that has gone off the air) It also goes to the BSOD (blue screen of death) at times.. What the FORK??? any ideas???
Richard Lloyd (2 years ago)
+James Schulz I am still suspecting some sort of malware or virus on your machine. Try this solution to verify it is clean https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnxXRLSlmSVMbLejKUV0qLjPfDf0lxgUT If it does pass as clean then I suspect you are having a hardware issue of some type. BTW I have made 8 videos on this problem http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnxXRLSlmSVNjwH-c-OD-B_yaIAqj9mxz take a look through those too.

OOOPS I think I posted this in wrong video(shows you how tired I am due to pc problems..lol) but this is for same problem but IRRT driver vid..: )Make sure you have the Intel rapid storage tech installed or it will not work. I also tried the notebook thing where you copy and paste a long list and save as reset.bat, I think that was name but that failed due to the program not being installed. I did all you said checking win update and rpc and both were running so AGAIN Richard thank you

You are a life saver. I have an Alienware pc which the hard drive was going so I did a clean install due to some problems and the pc would not return to original until I used the recovery disc made(so important for ALL to make one). Ok so all is good but hard drive still acting up so I buy a new hard drive and find out if you have a dell, who bought alienware, and do a reinstall without saying anything it voids your warranty but this pc is 5 years old and runs great. I install new hard drive and reinstall OS with discs but no go. Let me say now this is after 5 continuous days of trying everything I know but nothing until I went to youtube. I find out you can use a free clone program, I chose HDClone which took 4 1/2 hrs. when that was done I switched hd's and to my amazement the new hard drive look exactly like the other except for 1 major problem..WINDOWS UPDATE wouldn't work. All the forums I went to said your pc has virus, been hijacked,malware etc and ONLY a clean install would do it. Then I see your video and find out I don't have Intel rapid storage tech installed so go to dell and install and it worked. THANK YOU so much for your persistence in your problem to make a major problem an easy fix! : )

I can not get BITS to run every time I try to get it to start it immediately stops. Is there anyway to delete it reinstall it and rewrite the registry key?
