    Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant not working


    I have run the upgrade assistant several times now, but each time I get the message: "Windows 8 Setup has stopped working" Has anyone else hit this wall, and how did they get past it?

    Uninstall any security software, remove any USB peripherals and see whether it downloads. Don't forget to burn a disc.

I then used the link which worked well till I reached about 80 % when it stopped with the following error message:


    This happened several times, so got in touch with Microsoft again, who sent me a new link which crashed early in the download with:


    Followed by the first error message.

    Any ideas
