Windows 7: Backup error: Server execution failed (0x80080005)

Windows 7 Home Premium x64, Ubuntu 10.04 x64
 
 

in c:\windows\logs\windowsbackup\ there are some log files in .etl format
Is there anyway to read these and are they useful? It creates one each time I
try to create a backup; the last one is named WindowsBackup.1.etl (384 KB)
and the last time I tried to create a system image there is one called
SystemImage.4.etl (896 KB)

Are these log files useful in determining what my problem is?

I absolutely loathe doing a fresh install. I had that Dell with XP Pro for 10 years and never needed to do any re-installation.

Thank you

I have Home Premium 64 bit. I believe it only backs up documents, etc. per user.
I could create a system image and a repair disk also.
But backup and system image gives the same error I (0x80080005).

check in control panel admin tools task scheduler microsoft-windows-windows backup and delete any scheduled backup tasks

I forgot you have Home version never mind gpedit.msc
