You paid dearly for that.

Think about who got the money and have them make suggestions. I'm at a loss since no make, model or the rest of the story. For example that failure is common with home brew machines. Fix? Fix the machine.

Download ccleaner and run it to clean the registry hive and also some unwanted files which might be hampering the update process.

or you can try this..

1. Insert the Windows 7 DVD
2. Restart your computer
3. When asked if you want to boot from your DVD drive, do so.
4. Choose your language, click Next.
5. Click 'Repair your computer'
6. Select operating system you want repair
