My backups are successfuly, but in the early morning an event log error is logged, ID:  1000 Source:  applciation Error.  This is pointing to Backup Exe 10 with SP 3.  
For Example:

Event ID:      1000
Date:            2/5/2008

Description:
Faulting application bemcmd.exe, version 10.0.5520.24, faulting module bemcmd.exe, version 10.0.5520.24, fault address 0x000e29d1.

Any input would be great on how to resolve this issue.

Have you scheduled bemcmd to run? For example through Windows task manager? Otherwise it wouldn't run.
What is the exact command you are running?
Has this worked without problems before?

No, bemcmd is not scheduled to run in scheduled tasks.  I inherited this server from another tech and that person is no longer available to quiz about past history of the server.  I suspect that this was a failed attempt to use the command line backup that Veritas offered, but was abandoned.  

Isn't this a separate component that can be uninstalled without interfering with Backup Exec?

You also don't have any pre-/post- commands in your Backup Exec jobs that would directly or indirectly call this command?

bemcmd cannot be uninstalled. But I suggest you move the file bemcmd.exe file away (from backup exec\nt to another folder). I'm 99% sure it is not used in normal Backup Exec operation.
Check what happens, but you shouldn't see any effects.

I will look for the pre-/post -commands, but I don't think this is listed.  I will move the bemcmd from the directory and post my results.  I didn't think that this bemcmd was required when doing backups in Backup Exec, but I just couldn't find the information that I needed.

Thanks.

Ok, made the change you recommended and my test backup to file worked without any issues, but I noticed that this errors only during the verification phase.  I will change the order of the backup to see if the error that occurs in the early morning moves as well.  Could this be associated to a particular directory?

Thanks.

I'm pretty sure it's not associated with a certain directory.
I still have a feeling something outside Backup Exec was calling bemcmd.exe

The issue was resolved by moving :bemcmd from where it was stored.
