Default Re: Updating to Windows 7 From XP

I am installing the 32bit version & like I said before I run the windows 7 program to check if my desktop was able to do an update to windows 7 and it said it was I'll upload a pic of that later. I read that I have to turn off my antivirus before I do the installation I am running microsoft security essentials & didn't turn it off before installing, can this be conflicting with the installation?

Are you booting to the dvd drive and doing it or upgrading inside your OS?
