The Background Intelligent Transfer service is used by programs (such as Windows AutoUpdate) to download files by using spare bandwidth. The Background Intelligent Transfer service can maintain file transfers through network disconnections and computer restarts. However, the following two problems exist with the Background Intelligent Transfer service:
  • If a file transfer job is pending, and the computer starts without an available network connection, the Background Intelligent Transfer service remains in the "Pending Start" state for two minutes. If a user logs on during this time, some of the system services may not start for the first two minutes.
  • When a computer that is running any of the following operating systems with Internet options set to "Always dial my default connection" is upgraded to Windows XP, the Background Intelligent Transfer service remains in the "Connecting" state when you try to transfer a file:
    • Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me)
    • Microsoft Windows 98
    • Microsoft Windows 95

You may also see the following error message reported in the system event log:
Event ID: 7022
Source: Service Control Manager
Description: The Background Intelligent Transfer Service service hung on starting.
