Having issues when upgrading Windows 7 online? Find out how to solve them
If your computer is operating on any version of Windows based OS before Windows 7, it is highly recommended that the system be upgraded to Windows 7. Windows 7 would make your system more stable and also better performing. As Windows 7 is a newer version OS, the system would be also immune from older types of malware designed to infect and cause damage to older Windows based Operating Systems. The previous version of Windows based OS can be easily upgraded to the latest Windows 7 online. Upgrading to Windows 7 online has many advantages as it would be faster and more effective. Upgrading Windows 7 online also has the added benefit that if some issues do come up during the upgrade, restarting the system would revert to previous version of Windows OS rather than the OS getting corrupt. Although upgrading to Windows 7 online is easy, there are some issues that can occur such as upgrade process getting stuck, system restarting before upgrade can be completed, connection with upgrade server getting disconnected and so on.
Following details mentioned below gives users more information regarding tips to fix issues when upgrading Windows 7 online:

- Verify network connections
- Disable proxies
Check for malware
Issues when upgrading Windows 7 online might be because of the presence of malwares within the system. Malware are known to cause all kinds of issues on a system and if your system is infected with a bad malware, it might be corrupting the Windows 7 upgrade files that are being downloaded. Users having issues when upgrading Windows 7 online are advised to check for malware using a good antivirus software and remove any if found on the system. Upgrading after removing the malware would solve the problem.
Verify network connections
Problems during online upgrade of Windows 7 may be because of issues with the network connections used for upgrading the system. If the network connections used for the upgrade are getting disconnected often, the upgrade would not be possible. Users having issues while upgrading Windows 7 online are recommended to check and verify the network connections used.
Users having issues while upgrading Windows 7 online are suggested to disable proxy settings on the system. Proxies can be best described as intermediary services that work between the server and the system.

Disabling the proxies on the system and then carrying out an upgrade would resolve the issues.
