BITS Service
bitsadmin is going to be replaced by powershell sometime, but until then…

  • Show all jobs pending download: bitsadmin /list /allusers
  • Clear all jobs: bitsadmin /reset /allusers

If the reset command doesn’t work (normal for SYSTEM initiated jobs) then

(watch out for wordwrap, the following is a single line command)
net stop bits & Del "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader\qmgr*.dat" & net start bits
