When I open task scheduler, it says taskBackgroundconfigsurveyor: the task image is corrupt or has been tampered with. Not sure if thats not helping the situation, it lets me into the task scheduler program after I click okay though and I can change settings at will.

I have increased the size...deleted all previous and then created one...will reboot and report back.

Hope you come back with good news. I really believe that it was the size of the partition.

No dice....its not keeping the restore saved, and its got 90+ gigs now to use. Hmmph....Im really wondering if I dont have some kind of worm that Norton is not finding preventing me from backing up. Any other ideas?

It may be malware. Download an use malwarebytes. If you give me a sec. I will get the link. This software will find any problems and it is free.

Here you go.

Another suggestion that has worked in the past with problem restore points is to turn system restore off and the boot up. I usually warn the poster that all points will be lost, but not really a concern here.

Just so you know, we are a long way from the end of the suggetions. We will get this to work.

Mate, IE8 is a pray to Virus-God, You should get Firefox, Opera or Google Chrome
