    Background Intelligent Transfer Service using max bandwidth


    I have noticed that the BITS process is using maximum bandwitdh regardless of what I'm doing in my PC. It is my understanding (after doing some research online) that this process is in charge of downloading updates for Windows in the background and it is supposed to be intelligent, i.e. it will use only available bandwidth and respect user or foreground activities and throttle down its own transfer if something else is transfering data. However, as stated above, this process is using ALL of my bandwitdh, all the time. This naturally results in an apparent extremely slow connection and the only solution is to completely disable this process, which I'd rather not do.

    I should mention that just before this issue started, I had noticed that some Windows update failed to install, so I hit the retry button and the download started. However, the progress bar seemed to be moving VERY, VERY slowly, which is odd because there weren't that many updates. Could it be that manually pressing the retry button caused the process to ignore other processes transfering data? Maybe that makes it a foreground or a user activity?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.
