I spent far too long trying to fix this.  BITS needs to be re-registered first before you can even start trying any of the other solutions on here:

sc create BITS binpath= "c:\windows\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs" start= delayed-auto

Then either restart, or go into Services (run: services.msc) and restart it yourself.

badcip,
     You can run the BITS repair tool from the article in the last post.  I ran it on my Windows 7 machine and it ran without any problems. 

Did you run the System File Checker?  If so what were the results?  If it found problems it was not able to resolve then your best bet is to back up all your personal data the reinstall Windows.  Once some files or system components get corrupted or compromised to a certain extent then the best thing to do is reinstall Windows.
