Hi and welcome to seven forums.

Thanks for filling out your system specs. It makes things alot easier. It could be several things. could you go into event viewer (type event viewer in search) and see if there are any errors (in app tab) that relate to this problem. Have you gone into control panel to see if it is set up in cpanel? start>cpanel>backup and restore>setup?

Let us know whats up

i guess the upgrade has messed up things here. A clean install would be recommended.

thanks for your quick reply. i'v checked event viewer, and there were a few error, but none that relate to my problem, but i did noticed an error for restore . i've also checked the control panel, and yes backup and restore is there with the same problem.
