Hi Ian, I am running WR as standard, and have no idea how to check fonts.
Thanks for your interest!

Hi Shane, I followed your instructions, sadly with no change.

I tried three times with same result, so thought to run the Task Manager, dragged the error message on to it, and took screen shot. Can't see any thing which might be relevant but thought with your knowledge it might help.

The exe for Greenshot was not loaded until I had set up what I needed to grab, so this should not be involved.

I have scanned my system with my AV Bitdefender, Malwarebytes, and CCleaner with no change.

But as everything else seems to run as expected at present, it seems just a minor nuisance.

Hi Shane as I managed to get Hosts File sorted I didn't bother you again. But as you now ask here is the message I receive when trying to run Windows Repair in Safe Mode.

Sorry seems I have forgotten how to up load screen print.

The message says,"Invalid Picture"

Thanks Boggin. I decided to try Tweaking Repair without going into Safe Mode, selected the repair for Hosts, and it worked. A.O.K.
Still TR not working in Safe Mode though. But PC OK at present.

Thanks again for your kind intention.

Cannot get WR to run in Safe Mode get message about 'corrupt image' or similar.
I need to repair Hosts File and thought WR would do that, but will not load and run.
Runs no problem in normal mode.

Windows 7 64-bit. Home Premium.

Can you please advise?

Thanks in advance.

I have a similar intention. I use my PC as a hobby for editing my photos assembling videos, some in 3D. Win 10 wants to take control of my storage habits of all images, etc.  Not any help for me. Plus as an OaP who loves flying, but can only now do this using a simulator set-up, again 10 intrudes. So my Macrium BU is my way back to 'sanity'.

Maybe in the future 10 may improve sufficient to make it more user appealing.



After over 28 failed upgrade attempts, that worked for me. Took around 3 hours total.

Now a big BUT, having now got Win 10 up and running, quite honestly, for me, I don't think it is much of an improvement over Win 7. It has nothing new that I find useful, in fact, at present it seems all gloss with no gain.

Mind that last statement is my own feelings at present. YMMV as they say!


Correct, as a long time subscriber I found access to the info, after my son gave me a reminder.

I have the URL but not sure if I would be breaking any protocol with Fred Langa or your good selves.

I had a complete image BU of my HDs so took the plunge and it worked perfectly.

OK I have cured my updating problems, repaired the corrupt Package Files, Win 10 installed and now in use.

There is one easy cure for Win 7 to Win 10, use your Win 7 install DVD and do repair. I had forgotten this, when my son a computer geek said Dad surely you can do a repair, reawakened my memory cells. All is now fine!

Result from tonight's Windows Repair Scan->

Scanning Windows Packages Files.
Started at (12/08/2015 23:25:11)

These Files Are Possibly Corrupt (Bad Digital Signature): (Total: 22)

22 Combined Problems were found with the packages files, these files need to be replaced (These mainly only effect installing Windows Updates.)
The SFC (System File Checker) doesn't scan and replace some of these files, so you may need to replace them manually.

Re the edit to registry, I checked the registry and it already had that entry!

No logs in $windows. bt folder or sub-folders.

OK Shane I'll check that out. Meantime I found this on the internet after doing some searching, apparently it came from Microsoft.

“Locate the registry key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\OSUpgrade]
It should exist, but if not, create it.
Create a new DWORD (32-bit) Value with Name = “AllowOSUpgrade” (without the quotes), and set the Value = 0x00000001.” (Source: microsoft)

OK Shane did all that but tried to install, puts a Blue box on screen with one large word, "WINDOWS", and that is as far as it goes. Well the box disappears and back to my normal Desk Top screen, and the Task Manager shows no activity.

Boggin I had a successful?? download of MCT but it doesn't run, have downloaded about five copies all with same result and all same size file = 19,188 Kb.

The Media Creation Tool would not run. I did all my usual things after downloading setting it to run under administrator having unblocked it previous.
But nothing happens, I am trying to run it from the O/S Partition as one would most exe files. So are you saying the MCT.exe software should be on an exterior USB. I thought it was supposed to produce the Win10 iso and save the iso to a USB. Am I wrong?

Sadly after over 5 hrs. the finish came with the previous warning unable to install error 80070005.
And my attempts to download MediaCreation were successful, but it would not run as with my Desk Top.

I think I will give up on this upgrade for the present time, and try again in a few months time.
Might get lucky then.

Only problem now is how to clean the upgrading software from my PC, I've tried but each time I reboot it returns.

Any way thanks to Shane and Boggin for their time and endeavours, sorry now to have imposed my problems upon your good selves.

Many Thanks to all.


Hi Boggin,

I am trying last suggestion re admin, and 10 has been trying to download now for over an hour  up to 30% so far. I missed your previous post and have been unable to make the MediaCreationTool open/run.

On an old Laptop at present, perhaps I can get it on here, and transfer to a USB card.

Yes, I used my Admin account, also Control Panel add/remove.

Will run through it again. But don't expect any miracle yet!

I do run an external USB memory cache add/on (64Gb), as I found this to improve performance, and it runs out of sight, so had forgotten it.
been running without fault for over a year. Will remove it see if that might help.?


Just a quickie, uninstalled all nVidia drivers, BUT each time I had to restart, and each time Windows reinstalled the nVidia drivers. I tried to stop it from this, but found it impossible, there must be a way but I don't know how.

So tried one more Win 10 install, with same result and error 80070005.

I'm off now till tomorrow, bed is calling.



OK Shane, thanks for your time. Will do that right now, but probably will reply to you tomorrow, due to time difference, it may be to late for me to reply tonight  from here.

Good Health and Thanks.

Hi Shane

That sounds very promising, do you have any special instructions before I remove/uninstall all the nVidia drivers and software. I will add that I always like to take safe precautions,  so I do have a very recent image BU of my sys partition, so can always revert.


No not store bought I have been assembling PCs for many years so it is self build.
It does have nVidia, plus all the bits and bobs 3D etc. As I am keen photographer video, and 3D.

Amd Phenom cpu Quad 8 Gb mem. 4 HDs, Cisco Router.

What ever you need to know I can tell you, but working on the O/S I am almost in the dark.

Hi Shane

My first run I did not use Safe Mode, but only used the second option which showed the error I mentioned in my OP.  After looking at other posting on here, I decided I should try as directed in Safe Mode but only used The repair choice and clicking on only 1,2, and I think it was 17. I then rebooted which seemed to involve a lot of HD activity, but after it settled down into what appeared to be a normal Win 7 state, I then allowed the free Win 10 install to start, sadly with the same result as previously.

It appears to do a complete download, then goes into install mode, completes this 100% which it shows, then within about 20 seconds  it shows unable to install unknown error 80070005.

Thanks for your offer of trying to help much appreciated. If we succeed I,ll buy the pro version of your software, not that I would use it without a lot of help.
OK thanks again.


General Computer Support / problem with Win 10 upgrade from Win 7 64-bit
« on: August 09, 2015, 11:57:00 AM »
Hi, I'm a new poster here, but have been brousing as an unregistered guest.

My upgrade has failed too many times, last count as 18.  I read a few posts here, and decided to try your recommended SW, 'Windows Repair'. So thought to try the first optional scan, which found 22 problems with the Package Files and stated that these problems would effect installing Windows Updates.  Then saying to seek help on this Forum.

So could anyone here help me please with this exasperating problem. Please don't get too technical as I am only 85. LOL!

Thanks in advance for any help on this subject.
