Windows 7 Backup: Unable to set backup

OS:  Windows 7 Enterprise
User A is assigned to Local Admin of Computer and member of admin group on domain

Issue:  When navigating to Control Panel>Backup & Restore and trying to set his backup he gets an error message stating he must sign on with administrator rights : internal error.

Tests:  Logged on as Domain Admin works like a charm.  So thought maybe permissions issue, went to process for Windows Backup sdclt.exe, permissions are for read & Execute and Read (which is correct).  Another interesting tidbit, If I click to create a system image I get no internal error.

Thinking:  Profile Corruption?  OS File missing?  

Appreciate any input as to why this may be happening and a solution, looked all over the net, most folks are running chkdsks etc looking for bad sectors, we've done this as well and none found.

The default security setting for Windows may have corrupt. To reset to default, run from an elevated command prompt the following:

secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose

Next, make sure that none of your critical OS files isn't missing or damaged. Again from the command prompt run:

sfc /scannow

Hope it helps.
Keep us posted.
