I keep getting an error when trying to start the Volume Shadow Copy Service.

The error is Error:1053. The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

This if effecting the backup on the box from completing 100%.

sfc /Scannow which fixed the files and then installed SP2. The service has now started
