    Advice Please on in place Upgrade/Repair

    Hi Guys having a few problems with my Rig at the moment and have tried SFC/scannow but that has not fixed the problem.

    I want top do an in place upgrade repair as to the tutorial as I really do not want to Format and to a fresh install. I have tried the upgrade but is won't let me, see screen shots.

    If I uninstall the items I have highlighted in yellow will the upgrade then work?

    Also am I starting with a fresh canvas on my desktop? Gonna be a bitch putting all those short cuts back on again.

    Thanks for any advice.

    You don't have to uninstall them. It said it may not work. Do the repair and, if it doesn't work, then uninstall and reinstall.

    I have not uninstalled the ATI stuff in the past and the repairs still completed though I have no experience with the others.

    If anything needs to be uninstalled before Repair Install, the compatibility scan it runs first will tell you.

    Just reporting back that I managed to do the upgrade successfully yesterday had a few niggly problems but sorted that out, strangely though I could not find a Windows old anywhere But ran a SFC/scannow and there were no more problems found so hopefully things will be OK from now on.

    Thanks to all of you that added your input for me.

    If you format the HDD during the install process you won't get Windows.old.

    Glad you got it sorted, thanks for the update.
