How do it fail? Download OK, install stops with an error message?

The installer is actually a windows update file and the update goes ok until the post reboot, where there seems to be an error and windows rolls back all changes.

That suggests that not all Virtual PC 2007 components have been uninstalled.

I repeat my earlier suggestion as told here with one change: after rebooting when Virtual PC 2007 has been uninstalled, run Windows System File Checker (tutorial) as many times as it finds errors, rebooting always between running it again. When done, download Windows Virtual PC again (do not use the one you already downloaded) and proceed to install it.

Just for future reference, did you do as suggested by restoring to earlier point, then uninstalling VPC 2007, and finally reinstalling Windows Virtual PC?
