Stick the disc in, you'll get an option of upgrading and preserving all your current files and settings. Dawdle.

More to the point, you get a choice of 32 bit or 64 bit installations. If you're just running a basic PC, stick to 32 bit.

If you have 4 gig of RAm then use the 64 bit version, if not it's pointless... I think you'll find 7 a massive improvement over Vista. 7 is just as pretty but far far more efficient and stable....

Sorry to get back again but:I loaded Windows 7 and it took the place of my Vista with all my stuff on it.
I got it backed up so I just have to transfer it all back but! I can't find any programme for my mail,is it the same as Vista Windows mail or is it Outlook Express?buggered if I can find it.
I went on to Thunderbird to get messages but I have no clue where the Windows mail programme is.
I searched it but it keeps saying that it is not installed, but I carried out a full installation.If you can,thanks

If you did an upgrade, then silly you as it not only transfers your programs and setting, but it also leaves all the shit you have on the hard drive as well.
A clean install is the only way to go.

There is no mail program as there is no longer a browser thanks to Europe. You can get it free here


Windows Live

Wot e' said.

If you can stand it seafarer1939, I would strongly advise starting again and completely formatting your hard drive clean before letting Windows 7 install itself. Otherwise its a bit like doing an engine rebuild without bothering to clean anything.

By mail programme do you mean an email client like Thunderbird / Outlook or do you mean Windows Live Mail?

HI,

Sticking to your problem , you can directly run the setup of the windows 7 from the Dvd or any other image file you have. Windows 7 will convert the previous version folder and fiels to windows.old and the newer will be installed, on doing the disk cleanup all the previous version files will be removed. Windows 7 is a great OS from microsoft as compared to the previous versions from Microsoft.
He did all that on March 23rd dingbat.
