Windows XP Patch: Background Intelligence Transfer Service Update
The Background Intelligent Transfer service is used by programs (such as Windows AutoUpdate) to download files by using spare bandwidth. The Background Intelligent Transfer service can maintain file transfers through network disconnections and computer restarts.
This update resolves two common issues with the Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) which is discussed in Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) Article Q314862.
- The first issue causes BITS to stay in "Pending Start" state for 2 minutes after the machine boots.
- The second issue causes BITS not to work in certain cases where the machine has been upgraded from Win98/WinMe to Windows XP.
