BITS not in Services list

Specs: XP MCE SP3, core2duo 2.13/4gb
i just reloaded xp mce in a gateway GT5238E desktop using the original disc. then i added SP3. then i got some updates from microsoft update. now i'm not getting any more updates.
i looked at the services list for BITS (Background Intelligent Transfer Service) and it isn't there anymore. i tried to download it from microsoft and i get "the version you have doesn't require this update" and the installation stops.
i need BITS to get updates. how do i do it?

thank you for the reply
I did that a couple times. it didn't work other stuff I tried is installing SP2 on disc and sp3 download that didn't work either. each time I try to reload the BITS from different sources I get the same result. my version is newer than the source file and the update isn't needed.
