Ok, so today I bought a windows 7 upgrade seeing as Ive been running XP for forever it seems. The problem arises when I get to "Expanding files" at around 19% and it says this *Link*. Ive been searching the internet for about 2 or 3 hours now trying different ideas such as removing anti virus software and trying again and again etc etc... I came to the conclusion that Ive failed, so I decided to ring microsoft that were conviently not there after 6pm, so this is where I have ended. Thank you to anyone that can help! :)

If you can, try to do a fresh install of Windows 7 instead of just upgrading. If you can't, during what part of the installation process are you getting the error message?

I cant do a fresh install unfortunately due to me buying the upgrade. And its very near the beginning. I think the first step is after "copying windows files" comes the "expaning files" part.

So you've deleted the partition on your harddrive that has Windows XP on it?

---------------------------------------------------

Assuming the answer to that question is yes, let's proceed.

Clean Install of Windows 7 Tutorial [May be of some use to you, depending on experience level.]

Now here is where you're running into problems, but you're getting an error message about the network? That strikes me as a bit odd.

Have you tried disconnecting your computer from the network? Seems like too simple of a fix for me, but let's try that for starters.

(Remove any Ethernet cables plugged into your computer, etc.)

---------------------------------------------------

Also, before trying to upgrade to Windows 7, did you run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor?
