Win 7 Upgrade Advisor report

Just as a matter of interest, how can this report say that my OS is XP Professional, when it is actually Home Edition?

How much can I rely on the rest of the information it gives me?

OR SIW from here click here

Both should give you the info that you need.

Belarc and SIW will give you a lot of information about your system - but they won't tell you which of your programs are compatible with Win7.

My question actually was - if the Upgrade Advisor can't get the OS right, how accurate can the rest of their information be?

It's given me information about stuff I wouldn't have thought of (ATK0110 ACPI utility) but doesn't mention a fair number of my programmes.
