Well I have just managed to sort this problem out for myself, I took the advice of another member and downloaded 'Comodo' which is free and it has worked fine, so even though I haven't been able to find out what the problem actually is I am at least able to backup to wherever I want to!! I did get an error message in the Action Centre saying something about a compatibility issue between my Asus m/b and some software but I couldn't find any help with that so if you have a similar problem as I did I suggest
getting a free backup program to sort it out!
Thanks again to everyone that had the decency to try and help, cheers
