VSS Error after installing Mozy backup - Windows 7 x64

Hello I recently started backing up my data offsite with Mozy. Well I noticed that computer was BSOD''ing and then restarting at around 3am. I contacted support and they had me set about 5 services to auto start, I noticed that 2 were manual before. I looked in the event log and get this error pictured below. I am running Windows 7 x64 with 8GB of ram and over 70% of free space on my main drive.

Since I setup all those services to restart yesterday it did not crash last night; however, I am still getting those error messages.

Apparently, your error is a common problem with Mozy, Diskeeper, and Retrospect; but, does not affect the backup process, itself.  It also seems to come and go at seemingly random intervals.
Verify your backup by checky Mozy online, and, mutter about the event errors.  There is; howevr, no fix and people have tried everything up to, and including, complete reloads.
