Windows 7: Windows Backup application could not start

Windows Backup application could not start

I am getting a error that says "Windows Backup application could not start due to an internal error: Server execution failed (0x800800005)". I found a couple articles saying my account didnt have the rights to do a backup. I dont know how this could be since I have a weekly scheduled backup and havent had a problem and I havent changed my rights. Plus Im logged on as a administrator. So the solution I found said this

"Your Windows user account doesn't have the privileges it needs to run the task, Thomas. Go to Start, right-click Computer, then choose Manage, Local Users and Groups, Groups. Right-click Administrators and click 'Add to group', Add, Advanced, Find Now. Double-click Local Service and press Ok"
Fix Backup & Restore when it won't start

However Local users and Groups does not appear in my computer management. Im using Home Premium which is why I believe. Anyhow I dont plan to continue solely using windows backup either. Does anyone know how I can remedy this? Whether I actually do not have the appropriate rights? or What else could be my problem? Thanks alot.

The error code that you are getting is a classic COM "Class Not Registered" error.

This indicates to me that you have had a fairly major corruption of your machine. That could also explain why your "Local users and groups" does not show up either.

Bad news is that I can't really offer you any advice on how to fix that. Hopefully someone else here can build on what I've said & help you out some more!
