NTBackup hangs upon execution

Last Modified: 2008-01-09
I have a new SBS 2003 server running exchange 2003 and SBS backup hangs on execution.  I have to end task to close it.  The errors in the event logs relating to this are-
Hanging application ntbackup.exe, version 5.2.3790.1830, hang module hungapp, version, hang address 0x00000000.
One or more components of Small Business Server Backup failed. For more information, click Backup in Server Management, and view the log files.

When I try to run SBS backup, I get about 5 secs into the ntbackup.exe and the dialoge box freezes.

What is causing this and how do I resolve it/
