At some unknown time, netsvcs disappeared from my XP Home SP2 machine.

I only found out when I tried to start BIT service and it failed because it
could not find netsvcs.

I have a DELL which came with a recovery disk, not a m'soft XP disk.

Is there any way I can get a copy of the file.

Without it I can't automate many downloads, including Windows Update.

I have XP Pro and cannot find a file of that name. I checked services and
there is no BIT service. If you don't know what this service is I would
suggest running Adaware or Spybot.
