Windows 10

I have had 4 attempts at doing the upgrade from 7 and each time it has failed.Do I need to disable Panda virus checker and Spybot.

I strongly doubt it, but no harm in trying.

I upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10 on Wednesday and it was completely seamless.

Uninstall 3rd party virus checkers and adaware programmes, run the install again, then reinstall antivirus software.

Yes AVG stopped my first attempt.

Also try to install from updates not from the Windows icon in the corner. This helped for some people.

I've had a couple with Eset Smart Security which have choked on the upgrade as well. driver irql not less or equal - epfwwfpr.sys

delete the file in windows/system32/drivers then after reboot uninstall/reinstall Eset and good to go.
