First, you will want to BACKUP ALL of your programs.
Since you did not upgrade to VISTA, you will LOOSE all of your programs when you upgrade to Windows 7, so be sure to backup all of your programs and files.
If you wish, you can use an external hard drive and a program called WINDOWS EASY TRANSFER to make this task easier.
See the link below for this FREE program.
Now, for the fun part! Insert the Windows 7 disc into the computer and start or restart the computer.
Follow the onscreen instructions to completely install Windows 7.
You will now need to reinstall each of your programs.
If you used Windows Easy Transfer, you can use the list of programs that it prints out to be certain that you reinstall all of your programs.
Hope this helps.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or
a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from
it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white
letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
