Windows 7: Windows 7 failed to upgrade error

Windows 7 failed to upgrade error

Hello everyone,

I'm new to what looks like a really good site, and I really appreciate being able to ask for advice here.

What happened: At the very end of installing RC Windows 7, I got a "failed to upgrade" message, and then it said my system would automatically revert back to Vista, which it did (thankfully).

I have already uninstalled Windows OneCare (virus protection). However, when W7 was installing, my Spyware Doctor opened up and I had to click "yes" on it for the Spyware Doctor box to go away. Do you think that could have caused the upgrade to fail? I had turned off Spyware Doctor, but I'm thinking I should uninstall it before trying W7 again. What do you all think?

Thank you very much.

Sys specs: Dell XPS 410, Vista Home Premium, Q6600, GTX 285, 650 PSU, DDR2 800 Mhz.

not sure about the Spyware Doctor, but in any case I recommend Windows 7 be a clean install. There is far less problems that way.
