Hello there and good morning I have Windows Xp machine purchased in Jan 2006. Its a Dell Dimension Pentium 4, 3.00GHz, 2.99GHz, 2Gb Ram. Service pack 3.
I just wanted to see what upgrades would be needed for me to get windows 7 on my country pc. So i downloaded the windows 7 upgrade advisor, and it installed perfectly...with no probs, then it started to scan, and it said it'll take a few was scanning for about 3 hours!!! i did it 3 times yesterday, and i left it overnight, STILL same thing it just said it was still the end again ive cancelled it. Any suggestions please??? No error message comes up whatsover. I dont believe the scan can take so long.

Is this the one you used.

If so not sure what the problem could be.
maybe your security stopping it from running.

Yeb exact one. I use kaspersky internet security 2010, it has NEVER blocked anything before, and even if didn't like what i was downloading it will ALWAYS notify me first....but as the upgrade advisor is a legal/normal download it wouldn't be a problem. Also if it was gonna block it then it would'nt even let me download it in the first place.

Any other suggestions please??

Not got script switched off or Flash maybe.
Maybe there is a more up to date version.

This one for the Uk but not sure if it makes any difference.
There were conflicts with Kaspersky and W/7 upgrade advice but that was last year and I would presume it would be fixed by now,
Mind you that was for some 64 bit versions.

Maybe worth giving it a try and remove the other one first.
