    The following issues are preventing Windows from upgrading. Cancel the upgrade, complete each task, and then restart the upgrade to continue.






    • [*]For these items, make the following changes:



    • Uninstall these programs. Open Control Panel and search for "uninstall a program".


      • [*]Windows PowerShell











    Upgrading Windows will affect the following devices and/or programs:




    • These programs might not work properly after the upgrade. We recommend uninstalling these programs before upgrading. Cancel the upgrade, open Control Panel, and search for "uninstall a program".


      • [*]Daemon Tools

    Not sure how to uninstall PowerShell its not in the Add/Remove and I don't really get why this would be a problem.

    Upgrade versus Clean Install

    The clean install is always the best way to deal with windows7 . From your post I can see the issues you have encountered and would suggest you partition and do a clean install . If you really want to do an upgrade follow the advice given while attempting to upgrade .
    What are you trying to upgrade from ? Good idea to state the OS you are upgrading from :)

    2. Click to select the Show updates check box.
    3. In the Currently installed programs list, click Windows PowerShell(TM) 1.0, and then click Remove.

    hope that helps :)

    It looks like he has a pretty clean system and those listed are MINOR issues. ONLY PowerShell needs to be removed, because Windows 7 will NOT install until it's removed. However I would suggest he also remove Daemon Tools. There are some acceptable Daemon Tools replacements if he REALLY needs it.

    You must work for Dell :)

    Note: It is always optimal to do a clean install but it is nothing as critical as it was for XP or Vista.

    I'm on Vista and I'm unable to update to Office 2007 SP2 as it errors out. I spent hours trying to make it update and finally gave up. When I use the update feature of Windows 7 and all is up and running I'm able to update Office 2007 to SP2. Some things updating fixes.
