Leak behind gutter

I noticed that I have an area where the water running down my shingled roof runs behind the gutter and down the house. What is the proper way to repair this?

Sounds like your shingles are too short and you need a drip edge under them.

If you have a metal drip edge cut some strips of sheet metal that you can slide up behind it and over the top lip of the gutter. If no drip edge on the roof Make up like a sheet metal L bent to fit on the roof under the shingles and cover on down over the gutter edge.
