Windows 7: Cannot disable backup

Cannot disable backup

A friend runs Win 7 64-bit.

He doesn't want to use the backup utility but keeps getting prompted to insert a DVD or USB device. This is in the form of a flag that keeps appearing in the system tray.

I tried to help by going into backup and turning off "Schedule"
However, on reboot the flag reappears.

What am I doing wrong?

It seems that you have to go to the Action Centre and then disable notifications about backup.
