First reboot your server, if its still a problem then perform the backup via command line, see here for more info: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/dce7fece-b866-4836-84f0-369297559e7c/windows-server-backup-the-program-issued-a-command-but-the-command-length-is-incorrect

Be sure to fully patch your server once you've managed to get a full backup working. See if that resolves your problem.

No, you can create the whole job via command line. See this link: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753201.aspx
