Windows 7: Windows 7 Install freeze during Screen Saver install

Windows 7 Install freeze during Screen Saver install

I've just installed Windows 7 Starter on my Acer Aspire One (after having XP), and I get through the whole install and can even run it in Safe Mode (I'm using it to post this), but in normal mode, it keeps getting frozen at installing 13/14 Screen saver install. It freezes up the whole computer. Is there a solution to this? I can't bypass it, as it automatically starts back up where it left off the last time it was installing once I log in. I can get to the start menu, and even do a few things, but I have about a minute until it gets to the freeze up point.
Any help would be great.

Welcome to SF!

What screensavers are you trying to install, and from where?

I actually got the problem straighted out; I was using a work license copy of Windows 7, and evidently something was wrong with it, so I re-installed it again with a working copy. Very weird problem.
