Vista Install trouble.
I have an Dell XPS 600 and i been having trouble installing Vista. At first
it would not install becouse it could not change the Boot sector. So i have
changed an Reg Key and i have got past that point. Now when im about 80% done
Windows comes back and reset WinXp becouse of an install issue. The machine
does not give the problem at that time so i dont know what stop's it at that
time. I have PC-Cillin installed on pc. Should i uninstall it? or any ideas?
Thanks JW

Re: Vista Install trouble.
Any antivirus software, along with anti-malware, should be uninstalled
before attempting an upgrade. Any other software that is flagged as
incompatible should be uninstalled before upgrade.
