Answers :

This type of error normally happens when you try to create a restore point. May I ask if you are using Windows Vista?
\015\012
\015\012If so
\015\012
\015\012Start, right click Computer, Manage; select Service. Services and Applications, Volume Shadow Service, and set the service to "Automatic"
\015\012After that run CHKDSK on your drives. This will solve the problem with your computer backup.
If the computer is asking you to back up files, this is the S.M.A.R.T software that the bios uses to check the health of your hard drive, informing you that the drive is about to fail, if you cannot back up through means of dvd of dongle you will lose your docs as the drive will fail, you will have to replace the hard drive i'm afraid

Computer Model: UTOW-SAN. Serial No. 048800220095 I purchased this computer several years ago and registered it immediately. I have recently had occasion to reformat it using the recovery disc you kindly sent me. Now every time I switch it on I get a form asking me to register. I have tried re-registering it but still get this form on powering up. It is easily got rid of and is nothing major to worry about but it is becoming annoying. How can I stop this form appearing every time. Thanks
