A client's backup system is stuck on 'Starting...' it is scheduled to run 5 times per day, but hasn't backed up in 16 hours. Restarting the PC seemed to resolve it, but as the client needs to leave the PC on (iis needs to run at all times), and didn't see any error message, it was only that they manually checked that they realised it wasn't working.
The log states the following:

The response I received from Mozy support (in case anyone else is getting this). I'd restarted the service and PC previously, which allowed it to run as a one off. I'll be checking later to see if it has run automatically. I'll post again to let you all know if it's working:
Thank you for contacting Mozy Support.
The machine "XXXXXXX" last recorded backup was 02/04/17 09:35 Manual Backup. If Automatic Backups are currently not working then I suggest trying the troubleshooting the problem with these steps.
Confirm that MozyPro's status is at Running on services. To access services just follow these steps.
1) Right click on the bottom of the task-bar of the screen.
2) Click on Task Manager.
3) This will bring up a new window. At the bottom of this window click on Open services.
4) Locate MozyHome here.
5) Right click on it.
6) Click start.
You can add a exclusion for Mozy in the machines anti-virus software. This process differs with each anti-virus. Here is a link that can assist you.
Did the reboot and adding exceptions to the anti-virus alleviate the issue for you? Please keep us updated as to the backup progress. I've checked the case and the backup logs suggest that the backup is going through successfully. What are you seeing on your end?
