Windows 7: Can't Create Backup Schedule

Can't Create Backup Schedule


I am constantly creating a backup schedule to perform a backup every Monday at 7 pm. The "Next backup" correctly shows the date and time for the following Monday, and "Last backup" shows the correct date and time for last Monday. However, every time I reboot, the "Next backup" date gets changed to December 30, 1899 at Midnight - and my backups do not run.
