Windows 7: RC won't install due to Perfectdisk

Thanks. Been there... I've searched the registry for Raxco, "perfect" and a few other things. Still nothing. The registry has none of these things in it.

Problem Solved!

So Windows does it again... even with "search hidden and system files" on as well as "Computer" selected as the target, it seems Windows Vista still cannot properly search the hard drive. Using a third-party search tool, I found "prefectdisk.exe" in a PcMover directory (a tool I used to help migrate programs/settings from XP to Vista).

Removing that file did allow the upgrade to continue.

Thanks for all the other thoughts along the way... it kept me at this.

Persistence pays! Just for future reference what third-party search tool did you use? I use Agent Ransack, but my library is never complete.

Sorry about that... I fixed my post, but your quote still has it... maybe remove the ZIP part.

Thank you. I corrected the quote. I get a bit jumpy when an unexpected action occurs.

What does BSN stand for?

Fixing it is easy with this ruthless method

Simply goto program files and type perfectdisk in the search bar and delete everything it finds related to the query, it worked for me and vista still worked and the upgrade allowed me to continue.

Sorry... windows search is lousy and didn't find everything (no matter what "advanced" options I tried) so I went with the third-party search which worked in 30 seconds and found what Vista search could not.
