I am using Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2 - 32 Bit operation system. I keep geting a pop up screen on Windows Backup which says "An error occurred when checking the status of the last automatic backup. The specified service does not exist as an installed service. (Ox80070424) Verify the status of your backup." Please let me know how to clear this.

Many programs can cause this issue to occur; the most common are antivirus programs and programs that perform real-time backups of system files.

Note: Please make sure that you enable the antivirus software after performing the test to keep your computer protected.
2. The error message you are getting also applies to Microsoft updates in Windows7. You may have some bad updates that need to be resolved in order to fix this issue.
