Windows 7: Windows Backup Not Working

Windows Backup Not Working

I have Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit, SP1) on a year old Acer laptop. All Windows updates have been applied, and I have never installed Acronis on this laptop.

When I click on Set up Backup, instead of the wizard, I get a screen showing the files in my C:\Windows\system32 folder. I get the same result in Safe Mode.

Scannow reported no problems on the disk.

I can't do a clean install since no disk came with my system.

What is strange is that I was able to create a system image using backup without a problem.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Update: The culprit was some third-party software that was installed but I never used. After uninstalling this program, Backup now works as expected.

Thanks

The program was called MyWinLocker. Good luck!
