That problem can happen if the operating system is not installed properly. It can also happen if you performed an incorrect upgrade of your operating system. Generally, there is no straight path when upgrading Microsoft Windows XP to Microsoft Windows 7. Though you can install Windows 7 on your Windows XP computer, the process is totally different with upgrading.

If you want to replace your Windows XP and use Windows 7 instead, you need to perform a clean install of Windows 7 and not upgrade. Windows XP cannot be upgraded to Windows 7. Unlike Windows Vista which can be upgraded to Windows 7, Windows XP cannot.

To perform a clean install of Windows 7, you have to format your system drive (drive C), install Windows 7 on it using the Windows 7 setup disc, and then install every application you have. Basically, everything has to be done from scratch. It’s a lot of work but that’s the only way you can get Windows 7 from Windows XP.
