Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Windows 7 is the latest operating system developed by Microsoft. It was release a few months ago and in my opinion is one of Microsoft's top operating systems. It is fast, efficient and user friendly.
To check whether you can upgrade to Windows 7, the first thing you should do is download Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor. Save it to your desktop and run it. Follow the installation wizard to install it and then click to launch it. Remember to close all your applications before starting the compatibility check.
After the check completes you wil be presented with a list showing you whether your pc is compatible or not. Look specifically under devices compatibility. Programs is not so important but check to see if you use specific programs that are not compatble.
Also note that 1GHz processor and 1GB fo RAM is recommended for runnining Windows 7, but it can run with 512 or 756 MB RAM adequately.
As I said before Windows 7 is recommended if you are running XP and especially if you are running Vista!
