Windows Backup Issue...

Hello, when I am trying to make a regular weekly backup to my external hard-drive with Windows Backup (this has worked for almost a year...) it has suddenly failed on me. A picture is worth a 1000 words so they say, so I'll just post a picture of the complete error...

Help would be appreciated,

Go to search, type the word
services
In services make sure that the services mentioned in your notice are on automatic
"event system and vss services"

Make sure this is not the work of a virus, make full anti virus scan download and make a full scan with malwarebytes.

Hi,

VSS Service is running and is automatic, I can't see the 'Event System' service at all...

This is not the work of a virus, as I don't have any viruses on my system for sure...

Im willing to bet if you ran malwarebytes for the first time it would not come up negative. Might not solve the problem, but humour me.
Full scan and upadated.

Malwarebytes, this is not a search for a virus. I believe you have no virus.
