Let's start by opening up you Group Policy Management Editor. Open up your Group Policy Object that is used to apply changes to your non server windows 7 clients.

Next, Right-Click Registry and select New then Registry Item.
Enter the items as below:
Key Path: SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsBackup

Click Apply and OK. You will have to wait until Group Policy refreshes to see these changes unless you run a gpupdate /force on a particular client using the command prompt.
