Most of the tips on this site still work with them. The appearance is
different and there are new features. If you purchase a new computer
with Windows 7 on it and have questions, feel free to write me or just
search the web for Windows 7. There is tons of info out there.
As of January 2010, I now have Windows
7 and have included some comments on it. I have also set up some
new computers with it. It's now 2011 & I'm still happy with Windows
7. In 2012, I'm still happy except for one item- Win 7 does not support
If you are still using XP, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY AND BUY THE UPGRADE
to Windows 7 without checking the minimum requirements first. Most existing
computers will not run it well. Just wait until you need a new one &
get one with Windows 7 on it. You can buy a new one with an LCD monitor
for around $400, so as I have said before, by the time you add memory
and a new hard drive, you still have an older computer and have spent
a large part of the cost of a new system. If you just want to blow the
money on your old system, look at the requirements for Windows 7. Be
aware that there are multiple versions & each has minimum requirements.
Not everybody agrees what the minimum is, so err on the side of caution.
Search the web for Windows 7 requirements.
you CANNOT upgrade from XP to Windows 7. You must save everything, format
the drive & load 7 as a new install. I just upgraded from Vista
to 7 & it worked flawlessly. I have been doing upgrades since Windows
first arrived on the scene & this was the first time I did not have
to go in and get the drivers to make everything work.
2012, I have ugraded all my computers to Windows 7 (except a couple
of old ones). The ones that had XP took many hours of reloading the
programs, reactivating and putting the files back. Now they all run
much smoother and faster and talk to each other on the network with
ease. See this page for more
