Assume that you try to stop the Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) service manually on a Windows 8-based or Windows Server 2012-based device shortly after you start the device. In this situation, the BITS service stops responding.
Note This issue does not occur if you stop the BITS service while the device is shutting down.
This issue occurs because of a race condition between the cancellation of the Internet Gateway Device (IGD) device search and the callback function that is generated when the device search finishes.
To resolve this issue, restart the device.
