I am trying to back up my Win7 Professional desktop. I start Backup and it says backup has not been set. I start to set it up and I let windows choose, Chooses "all users and "system image" I hit save settings and run backup and I get " the task image is corrupt or has been tampered with". When I open the task scheduler I get 36 task errors. before the little window clears. Not sure what the issue is but I need help.

The only thing I can suggest is to do a System Restore back to a restore date before this started happening. If that will not work, the SFC SCANNOW run from an elevated command prompt would be the only alternative. The following comment is IMHO only: this is another example of why I simply do not trust Windows utilities in general. You can spend days (literally!) trying to troubleshoot this glitch and never find it.

I suggest a 3rd party utility called "Macrium Reflect", free edition. I have been using it for years, have done numerous backups and restores, and it has never failed me yet. It has a top reputation here on Bleeping Computer and many will recommend it. In addition, you have realtime search capability for each image, so it is possible to access data directly from an image made months ago. Two or three clicks and it is mounted and running.

Help Requests: If there is no reply after 3 days I remove the thread from my answer list. For further help PM me.
