Normally this error relates to backup but since you did not mention at what stage you are getting this error here is a possible solution

Firstly, please check if Volume Shadow Copy and Windows Backup services are running and set to automatic in Services Console.

1. Click on Start, type Services in Start Search. When the Services page is open, scroll the page to find Volume Shadow Copy and Backup service.
2. Right click on them and check if they are started.
3. If the services are disabled, start the services and set it to Automatic, then check if the issue disappear. 


If the services are running and you get Error Message: “0x8007007B - The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect”, file name or volume label has special characters.

Since the system does not accept the keyboard combination Alt+0 through Alt+32 or the following characters: \\ \\ / [ ] : | < > + ; = . ? 

Please correct the file name or volume label and make sure the folder name in the Documents has no spaces or special characters and then try to perform the backup. You get more ideas from the link below.

Fix for System Restore Error 0×8007007B in Windows Vista


When you start the System Restore utility in Windows Vista, the following error message may be displayed. The same error might occur when running Windows CompletePC Backup.


1 Click the Pearl. The Start Menu will appear.

2 Type sysdm.cpl in the search box and press .The User Account Control window will prompt for permission to run the program.

3 Click Continue.The System Properties window appears.

4 Click the System Protection tab.

5 Under Automatic restore points, uncheck any invalid or duplicate location.

6 You may see two C: drives in the listing with the same Volume label. Deselect the checkbox for the duplicate volume, and enable the checkbox for the correct drive (the one with Windows logo).
7 Click on Apply and click Ok.


Try this and let me know.

Before installing in Vista do the following:
 
1. Log-in to your PC with Administrator privileges.

 4. Click "User Accounts" icon in the dialog box which appears on the screen.

I think you need to enable(set as auto on start) the service volume shadow copy. Don't edit service in windows 7. It manage services efficiently. Read this to get more idea http://www.techyv.com/questions/too-many-programs-loading-startup
