Windows: Installing Virtual PC for Windows 7

Yesterday, I was trying to install Virtual PC for Windows 7, but it was taking ages to install. I even left it running overnight, but all it said, was:

Initializing installation... done!
Installing Update for Windows (KB958559) (update 1 of 1)...

I have just found this forum post that suggests un-installing any antivirus software, and then trying again:

Therefore, I disabled the anti-virus software that I had running, and the installation started working.
