I am thinking of upgrading from 98SE to XP. Does anybody have any recommendations/suggestions on what to do to prevent any loss or problems with my existing running program? I don't want to lose my programs etc and I have hundreds of photos that I wouldn't want to lose.
Thanks

Backup first of all - otherwise you are taking a risk.

Also ensure that you have the original disks for your software as well as various install codes and so on.

Defrag and run scandisk.

Check that you have hardware compatible with XP.
