The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.
Look for some context in your logs to figure out *which* service cannot be started? ; }
In case Gistcheckin's guess for the OP was correct. You could also try using bitsadmin
(in a cmd window) to both check the status of your BITS service and optionally repair it.
Note that another service being disabled was identified as the problem cause
by another poster to this ancient thread.
