windows 7

Hi, I have had various sites telling me to change to Windows 7 for free, as at the moment I am Windows XP. Is it safe to revert to Windows 7 or is it likely that I will confront a problem, and is this cosha?

You dont revert to Windows 7,its the latest version,and you certainly dont get it for free.

First you would need to find out if your PC is capable of running Windows 7 - you can download the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor from Microsoft link text

No it's not. You don't get genuine W7 for free.

Also if you change from XP to W7 you have to do a clean install, you can't 'upgrade' over the top of XP, so you have to start from scratch and all on your harddrive is wiped.
