Its very useful and less time consuming ( just right click, and grant admin...) than doing it manually.

I am currently at step 9 with 22% and 600mb out of 2gb done with upgrading =P I hope this works

Hmm...I never tryed it for that...but I can click on anything I want, and say 'grant admin full control'... What is does is add one key to the registry, it possibly can work with the registry if it uses it ( I can send you the file ) What site is good for that uploading /downloading?

Hmm... just on a hunch, try clearing out your temp files using CCleaner.

Also, how long has this been going on? Where did you get your copy of Windows 7?

Hmm...I did not have internet when it was upgrading, so I did not do steps 17,18, or 19. Can I still do these? Would this of impacted the result? I am unsure what to do for step 17...I guess I did not do it exactly as I said before...
- I will try CCleaner, I have it installed because I use it, so no problem there.
- This has been going on for only a couple days.
- FutureShop. I bought it because I wanted ultimate, and it was 50% off with the purchase of my computer.
