I bought a new Acer laptop just 2 months ago, with Windows Vista SP 1.
With the purchase, a free update to Windows 7 was included, and I got the update DVDs as soon as (well, kind of) the new OS was released.
Problem is, I can't make the update because there is a problem with the "interactive module" (sorry, this is both from memory and translated from Italian).
I tried the update twice with the same disappointing result: at like 95% of the process everything stops and I get that error message. Then the screen turns black and all I have is my mouse arrow, and nothing to click with it.
I thought, maybe I should update to SP 2 first. I downloaded the file but I got a similar problem, the message stating simply that the update could not be completed and everything would be resotred to its previous state.
This is quite upsetting, not because I particularly care about having Windows 7, but because I hoped getting rid of Vista would solve another problem...
Everytime I play a video file, no matter what player I use, Explorer freezes and I need to restart the system. This happens with DivX Player, VLC, not to mention Media Player, and I suppose it's not a matter of player or video file but of OS. It happens after a random time, it could be after 2 or 30 minutes.
I've found valuable help on this forum before, more than once, so thanks a lot in advance
