Virus or Malware as well, Check those. Or what backup did you set Vista to do (as it doesn't do it by itself

Yes something very fishy there. You can 'backup' files any time you like, just copy them across to an external drive or burn to dvd. You can set up 'Automatic File Backup' but you'd have to give consent as a user to do this in the first place. And there is the 'Backup and Restore Centre', but again, you give consent over which drives you want to backup. But it's strange for a computer to be doing it on its own accord. Do you have children playing around on the pc, poking their cursors into places they shouldn't be? ;) Someone must've enabled it in the first place.

No kids,,, looking at the settings it gives a day / time but NO never option for the time

Perhaps if you supply or google the EXACT message that you get you might be closer to finding the answer. It's all a little vague, and you're assuming that it's the backup centre when that might not be the case.

Nope is backup centre went as far as to go into backup centre to try and alter settings and all it wanted to do was create a backup.. and when I canceled this, once again in the pannel by the clock comes the icon with the words "your last backup failed" is just more annoying than anything

The same thing happens on my computer when I first start up, "last backup failed" pops up in the notification area telling me to click to change settings but having no options to change settings when I am directed to the backup and restore center. I have Windows Vista Home Basic x32
