I have the same problem. Additional information: Windows XP SP2 Norton Internet Security 2007 1.7 Ghz pentium M processor 1.24 GB RAM This is my temporary workaround: I have changed the service to manual startup: Start -> Run -> Services.msc -> locate the service maxbackserviceint -> double click and set startup to manual. After doing a backup you might need to kill the process, but at least it does not start when you boot the system. Best regards, Murray
