I am trying to upgrade to windows 7 64-bit and it is giving me this error. Problem is they are all on the same partition, C:... I even checked all the registry keys and they all point to someplace on the C:\ drive. Why am I getting this error?
Is there any way to force windows to upgrade, because i am trying to upgrade from win7x64 to win7x64, so I’m not sure if that would be causing this error, but I would supposed that it would tell me that i cannot upgrade from the version of windows currently installed or something like that, not this error.
The reason I am trying to "upgrade" is in a desperate attempt to get rid of a virus, i wound up deleting a few things I shouldn't have (biggest issue is the user32.dll). Windows still boots ok, but if I try and launch almost any exe, then I get the error "The program can't start because USER32.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem" I tried launching the installer, but I get the exact same error. I checked the system 32 folder and there IS a user32.dll, so I'm not sure why it would say it is missing, and I also tried copying it from another computer with win7x64 in our house, but still nothing different.
Is there any way to fix all of this without having to do a clean install?
