Once more, the response from the Support Engineer with a link to an article that does not help is marked as 'response' by a moderator of the Forum after 6 days of inactivity when it isn't the answer to everything.

It's a real shame the way things work around here.  If I were Microsoft and "indulged" these technical support engineers who regularly publish responses that are unnecessary and they are marked as 'response', I think that I would call off the coast of the commitment. "

Usually, it's just not worth reading these Support Engineer 'Answers' as they are not even close.  They are usually just wild goose hunting.

WinHTTP.dll if missing some things just will not start:

BITS service (Background Intelligent Transfer Service)
Automatic update service

In the Event Viewer system log, you will see tings like this:

Cannot start Service on Local computer Background Intelligent Transfer.

The Background Intelligent Transfer Service is completed with the following error:
The specified module could not be found.

The automatic updates Service hang and displays "Start" in the Services applet:

Event category: no
Automatic Updates service hung on starting.

CS5ServiceManager Adobe Dreamweaver Service Manager (and perhaps other Adobe startup items) not start and displays error message like this:

CS5.5ServiceManager.exe - Unable to locate component
This application has failed to start because WINHTTP.dll was not found.  Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Running sfc/scannow will not replace the winhttp.dll file missing.  I know because I tried.

I downloaded a copy of XP Pro SP3 file you need on my SkyDrive (everyone has a SkyDrive for file sharing).

You can download it and when you do, place a copy of the file in these two folders (assuming that Windows is installed on your C drive):

c:\Windows\System32\dllcache (this is where XP keeps backups of important files).

Here is the link to my SkyDrive and you can get the file you need here:
http://CID-6a7e789cab1d6f39.SkyDrive.live.com/redir.aspx?RESID=6A7E789CAB1D6F39! 311

When you see the files available for download, you can not see the file extension (.exe, .dll, .cpl, .sys, .zip, etc.), but when download you them they will have the right extension.

When you download the file (especially if you use Internet Explorer), when you get a chance to save the file, your browser is unable to save the file with an extension (by example, .exe, .dll, .cpl, .sys, .zip, etc) then you will need to manually add the extension appropriate to the file when you download the file before you save it.

You can download the file without the extension, and then rename the file to add the appropriate extension.  You do not want to use a file called winhttp when the name of the file should really be called winhttp.dll (if the downloaded file has no extension, you will need to change the name of the file to add the appropriate extension to make it work.

You then put the downloaded files in the correct folders on your system.
