Hi all,


My sons PC started to have dns resolving issues on perhaps 30% of the websites we try.


After MUCH googleing and head scratching I decided to use the upgrade option on windows 7 ultimate to repair the installation.


There was not enough room on his C drive, (SSD) so i set about freeing up space,


I got to about 18 gigs free and ran the upgrade option.  It told me that the windows controller might have an issue and that itunes would need to be de-registered from that computer.


I removed both of these and upon re-running the upgrade it tells me that there is not enough space left and now on 2 gigs remain.


Can anyone explain what happened to the free space?  I ran disc cleanup, emptied all temp files and now I am lost.  I already took off loads of stuff he wanted to keep, so I have no way of getting back to the 16 gigs without knowing what happened.


Any help would be appreciated,

Was the Windows 7 upgrade already installed and you were attempting to use the upgrade disc to effect a repair?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
