Thanks to all the feedback from those of you who’ve experienced problems with Windows Updates and the Windows XP BITS service. I’ve now updated my script to include an even more comprehensive registry fix. The latest version attempts to restore BITS and Windows Update related registry keys as well as registry permissions that can be broken by some viruses. I’m confident this is the most effective fix yet – please let me know if it works for you!

Windows XP BITS Fix Version 1.6
I’m still getting mail about RD Enable from lots of people who have found it useful. Therefore, I’m now pleased to release a simple command line version – RD Enable CL. This version is much faster (as it’s written in C) and much smaller in filesize. It does almost the same thing, although the remote firewall exception feature is not available in this version. I know that RD Enable XP doesn’t work too well in Windows Vista, but hopefully this version does. Feed back is always welcome!
A while back I created a few tools to help me in my work and made them available for people to download on my Lancaster University staff webpage. Within a few weeks I was amazed to see them appearing in the top 10 for relevant searches on Google!
I’ve since had a number of e-mails about them and thanks from people who have downloaded them over the past year. Therefore I’ve decided to make them available again here. You’ll find them in the Techie Tools section – hope they are as useful for you as they have been for me!
