Error in Satabase Maintenance plan

The maintenance plan for daily back up failed.
I have SQL 2000 on Windows Server 2003.
This is the report:

How do I correct this error?

Thank you,

The consequences of checking the box is that the database needs to go into Single User mode.  If this is a multiuser database (and 99% are) that will mean it will fail if any user is currently active.  Worse still, even if there are not (and that is a risk in itself) there is a chance that it will remain in Single User mode.  See here:
FIX: Database Remains in Single User Mode with the Database Maintenance Plan Option "Repair Any Minor Problems"

Again, not a good thing.

Do not check the box that reads "Attempt to repair any minor problems"

What are the consequences of checking the box? I mean other that cousing this error to happen, why does the plan fails? Can anyone give me a brief explanation?
I appreciate

agree with acperkins totally.....Personally, I think it's a bad idea to let SQL Server attempt any repairs anyway until you have a report and know what the damage is.  Sometimes the repair makes things worse....

A MSSQL "expert" told me that I need to check "Attempt to repair any minor problems" when doing backups.

So why the question here if you already have an "expert"?

What I have been told is to check "attempt to repai any minor problems in the productions databases maintenance plan.
The person who installed SQL in this place suppose to be an "expert."

Obviouly I like to heart other people with experience in SQL. So far what you guy are telling me makes a lot more sense that what I  have been told.

For the record, it is not my "expert", this person is a consultant that this place hired before me. I am new here taking care of the company databases. I post the question because I have some doubts about the way the consultant "expert" implements some things around here.

thank you
