1. My Backup in Vista has recently stopped working, giving me the following message:

‘The Backup did not complete successfully.
An error occurred. The following information might help you resolve error:
The system cannot find the specified. (0x80070002).’

2. Do not know if related? Update ‘Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 will not install (since April 08).

3. Do not know if related? I now cannot Shutdown or Restart my Computer without manually switching the Base Unit On/Off. The Computer hangs on the blue ‘Shutting Down’ screen after selecting from Start Button.

Would appreciate any help available.
