      sunil: Probably you have doing something wrong. Skype has to do nothing with the BITS service.
      1. In the machine with the problem: delete the BITS key for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\wuauserv
      2. From the working machine: export the BITS key as mentioned on the article and then
      3. import the bits.reg key again at the machine with the problem.
      4. Restart.

      swaraj: Boot Windows in safe mode (on the computer with the Windows Update Missing problem) and then import the exported .reg file from the working machine.

      aniket: Do not worry about the error. This is probably because the "BITS" service is working properly. Just restart your computer and then try to look for updates.

    On Method #2 when I'm about to install the program it says "The easy fix does not apply to your operating system or application version. Why?

    This is an epic gamer moment, malware corrupted my registry and I literally contacted microsoft and they were like "reset Windows" and I asked if there was a way I could just download the update service and they said no, good thing I kept looking. Thanks so much.
