Windows 7: File back-up not found on Windows 7 system

File back-up not found on Windows 7 system

Hello.

I have just reinstalled Windows 7 for the third time and when I attempt to back-up my files get the following message:

'The backup application could not start due to an internal error.

The specified service does not exist as an installed service (0x80070424).'

Any suggestions please.

Try starting the service - and then clicking on Automatic. Having said that, mine is set to manual by default too.

Manual is the default setting. It should turn itself on when required. I would suggest starting the service and see what happens before setting it to automatic. Make sure Remote Procedure Call is running. Windows Backup service is dependent on RPC. I am sure it is running; just trying to cover all bases.

^Yes, just checked and RPC is 'Started' as default.

The problem is when I click on 'set up backup' I get the message I mentioned in my first post.
