This forum may provide the solution for you:
What internet security programs do you use? "Security" in this case means
things like Anti-virus, firewall, anti-spyware etc - but when you say you
turned security off via control panel, this to me suggest you've disabled
the User Access Control (UAC) which is not likely to solve the issue as far
as installing Windows 7 is concerned.
One other suggestion (if you're not already doing it), remove all
un-necessary peripherals and expansion cards, so that your system is
bare-minimum will give it the best chance of installing, and then you can
troubleshoot for hardware compatibility one at a time, and obtain the
drivers as necessary.
