I've got another strange problem with Windows 7:
When I open the "Backup and restore" in the control panel, I just get an empty window without any content.
I can't use the backup and restore feature. Maybe somebody has an idea what could be wrong?
This should solve the problem.
Edit: If Start is greyed out, the service has been disabled. Choose Properties from the right-click menu, and select Manual or Automatic from the drop down box. This will then allow Start to be chosen.
If starting the Windows Backup service does not work or it is missing from your list of services, perhaps you need to restore some registry entries from SDRSVC.DLL: -
Some program has hijacked Windows Backup and Restore.
Go to Control Panel
Can see what Windows components are running, what have stopped. Can adjust what runs, e.g. if Windows Backup and Restore has stopped and displays no information, can check to be sure it is not disabled
Scroll down to Windows Backup
Turn on to Automatic if disabled
