You can not upgrade to Windows 7 for free legally.

At this time, Microsoft no longer even sells windows 7. Some dealers may still have it in stock, but it's no longer for sale.

Microsoft stopped doing any security updates for Windows XP about two years ago. You should not use this on any machines anymore, it will quickly get hacked when you go online. Hackers are using information from updates that microsoft is still doing for newer versions of windows to guide them in finding weaknesses in windows XP. Many website will even pop up warnings about using Windows XP when you visit.

What errors do you see on reboot?
Without knowing more I am inclined to think it may be your hard drive that failed.

Can you get into safe mode?
Can you get into the BIOS?

When closing the System Configuration, if any modifications were made, it asks you if want to "Restart" or "Exit without Restart" and there is a checkbox that says "Do not show this message again".
I guess you put a tick in that box and the clicked Restart.
And now everytime you exit if after making changes, it always remembers you choice of "Restart".
To get that option back, try this

You may have a virus, malware, adware, a browser hijacker, or pups (potentially unwanted programs). Tap F8 when you are booting, select "Safe Mode With Networking". Download and install Malwarebytes and Superantispyware (Note: If you can\'t do the download on your machine, do it on a friend\'s, put them on a thumb drive, and install them from it). Then scan your computer with each program, and quarantine anything found. Good luck.

WARNING! This will allow you and everyone else to see the Hidden and System files, folders and drives on your machine, and YOU MAY MESS UP YOUR SYSTEM IF YOU DELETE THE WRONG FILES. DO NOT DELETE ANYTHING YOU DIDN'T PUT ON YOUR COMPUTER!!! Make sure to undo the changes I am about to describe, when you are finished!!!

Right-click on the My Computer icon, on the dekstop.

Click on "Tools>Options".

Click on the tab labeled "VIEW"

Scroll down and find "Show hidden and system folders".

Click on the bullet hole next to that.

Next look for and un-tick the box next to "Hide File extensions for know file types".

Click "Apply", and "Okay".

You should then be able to view Hidden and System folders.

As Theodore Woodward added, Magical Jelleybean is a great program to use if you can get the system up and running and simply can't find the key, or (in the case of some of the dozens of PC's I manage) it is just plain worn off. Or bits of it are. ONE IMPORTANT POINT: Some antivirus programs will detect Magical Jellybean as a Trojan or other malicious program type. As log as you get it from an official source, it is NOT. The false positive is brought about by the method it needs to gather your code. Note that it will also show your MS Office code and sometimes others, too, as a bonus. Great little program!
Best wishes - Mark

Do a browser search for 'Software_exception_c0000005 tally' and you can find many suggestions. You may need to know what version of Tally.

There's a lot of answers, but I like to use the free programs like Malwarebytes or Superantispyware. There are dozens of programs available, but be especially leery of ones that purport to speed up your PC, streamline your registry or help with searches. Some of them are worse than the malware they purport to remove.
If you are having specific problems please post back with more details and I (or someone else here) will try to help.

This was the successful answer to almost the same question found on Microsoft's support forum (copied and pasted here):

Method 1:
I would suggest you to do a SFC (System File Checker) scan on the system and check whether the issue is resolved. Follow the steps mentioned below.
a.Click Start, click Run, type cmd and click ok.
b.On the command prompt, type sfc /scannow and hit enter.
c.Once the scan is complete, restart the computer and check if the issue persists.
Note: You will be prompted to insert the Windows XP disc if any file is missing.

Method 2:
I would suggest you to do a system restore to the point when the system was working fine and check whether the issue is resolved. Follow the steps mentioned below.
