Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
When considering an upgrade to Windows 7, something that you will need to be concerned with is not only the drivers for your computer and peripherals, but whether that game you bought 2 years ago, or the anti-virus program you bought 2 months ago will work.
Many times the program will not work no matter what you do. It was just not made for Windows 7.
Microsoft does have a Compatibility Center to help aid in determining whether your current programs will work. You can find the site at Windows 7 Compatibilty Center. Of course this site cannot possibly tell you about every program on the market, but it is a big help.
Also, most software companies have support sites and contact information so you can ask the important questions before you upgrade and realize too late that your software is no longer functional.
