Windows 7 Backup

If anyone is using Windows 7’s built-in backup service and it suddenly stops working, check if your antivirus/anti-malware software found anything during the failed backup process. In my case, Microsoft Security Essentials found a Java exploit and this was causing the backup to fail. Once I completed a full scan of the computer and removed the files containing the Java exploit, the backup service worked! 🙂
