Thanks for your reply Dima. Yes I am using AVG for my AV. No I didn't know your could whitelist VSS. Please let me know I'd like to try.
I have added the following exceptions as per https://www.veeam.com/kb2034
Add the following folders to the antivirus exclusions list:
installation folder, the default path is: C:\Program Files\Veeam\Endpoint Backup
localDB folder: C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile
logs folder: C:\ProgramData\Veeam
the folders containing your backup files.
Those exceptions seemed to help some situations. However there are a number of PCs that there seems to be a bigger issue and It looks like it could be related to a sql database issue causing the Veeam service to crash. I'm open to suggestions. This all happened AVG started removing pieces of Veeam when it picked it up as a virus back around Nov-Dec 2015. Also is there a way to manually remove veeams files, registry settings, the veeam sql database that veeam installs, and the SQL services that veeam installs? The Veeam uninstall still leaves the sql database\services and it's potential issues behind. Really trying to start fresh again.
