    Thanks for your post. The error looks like some sort of security problem, in that the backup software cannot access the registry. As it's referring to the current user section, this normally shouldn't happen as it's your own user profile.

    Has this only just started happening, or has it never worked?
    If you're on Vista/Windows 7, does it work if you right-click the SQL Backup icon and pick "Run as Administrator"?
