    Trouble in upgrading PC to Windows 8

    I was trying to download new Windows 8 into my PC yesterday. But, the installation process got stuck in the middle with an error message “Failure upgrading Windows, preparing to retry”. Please suggest me a method to avoid this error.

    Click on the ‘Start’ button and enter msconfig into the start search box. Then, press the ‘Enter’ key available on the keyboard. This will bring up the ‘Service Configuration Utility’ window on the screen. Go to the top part of the window and click on the ‘Services’ tab. Select the checkbox available near ‘Hide all Microsoft services’ label. You can then uncheck the checkbox next to the services which are unreliable. Press the ‘OK’ button afterwards and try to upgrade your PC again.
