I try to backup my files using windows backup on a Windows

Resolved Question:

I try to backup my files using windows backup on a Windows 8 1TB HDD computer to a 2TB external hard drive however it won't complete the backup. I noticed there is a limewire pro virus that Malwarebytes Anti-Malware won't remove, and the only other protection I have is Windows Defender. I'd like an answer to both questions if possible.
