Backup and Restore not saving setup information

Whenever I restart my computer after an update, the action center says I haven't set up backup, but I have. It doesn't seem to keep the settings. I have just recently (less than a week ago) did a clean install of Win 7 after using XP for years. Also some other settings don't stick, such as the shut down button I changed to restart reverts back to shut down.
