Ho abpExpert,
This could be to do with changing your admin credentials recently. Go into Windows Services and find the Backup Exec service. Right click and select Properties and go to LogOn tab. If the service logs on as your admin account, you will need to update your credentials.
HTH,

i checked the event logs and this is all i see but this is not a warning.  The description for Event ID ( 9688 ) in Source ( MSSQL$MICROSOFT##SSEE ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: ?.

Ok, if you go to the Backup Exec service properties and then on to the Dependency tab, it will show you all the services it depends on. Visit the properties of each service list in the dependencies and check the LogOn tab. If the account is your admin account, you will need to update it with the new credentials.
