  • Umm... I'm assuming you don't run Windows in Safe Mode. According to this site, the error points out to problem with COM+ ("here be dragons", at least for me). Since the site mentions reinstalling COM+ but it doesn't mention how to do this on Windows Vista, you may want to try the below:
    1. Windows services "startup type" settings are set to default values. You can check how they should be here (note the "default values"). You can access Windows services control panel by entering services.msc in Windows search box.
    2. Consider using system restore to roll your system back to a point in time when the backup was working. More on system restore is here.
