Here’s the quick easy way to fix this error:

  1. Open an admin CMD
  2. Type the following command:
    Reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\BackupRestore\FilesNotToBackup
  3. Start the BITS again via the service console (services.msc)

I opened the RegEdit and navigated to the key.  It did not have the FilesNotToBackup key.  I added that Key.  Then restarted with Background Intelligent Transfer, BITS, in the Services.msc.  I used the windows search back to locate the services.msc and started it.

This was exactly the fix that was needed.
