Official Upgrade To Vista

Free Download: Upgrade To Vista

If you have a PC that is running an operating system other than Windows Vista (Microsoft's newest OS, released in January of 2007), then it might be time to consider an upgrade. To upgrade to Windows Vista, you will take one of two approaches: you can install it as an update from your current Windows OS, or you can install it 'clean' as a new start.

However, before you purchase Windows Vista, you need to make sure that your computer is capable of running Vista properly. To qualify as "Vista Capable," you will need at least an 800 MHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, 15 GB of hard disc drive free space, a DVD-ROM drive, audio output, and DirectX 9 graphics capabilities.

To install Vista as an update from any version of Windows XP, simply purchase a Vista license in either hard copy or as a download from Microsoft. When you insert the CD (or start the Vista application from your download), you will be led through the process automatically. The Vista CD/DVD should also come with directions to help you out.

This update-style upgrade to Vista is a bit more affordable, and is also simpler because it should automatically transfer your files and settings from Windows XP to Windows Vista without you having to do so manually. However, it is always a good idea to make copies of your files to some external storage device, just in case complications arise.

For a clean install of Windows Vista, you will be starting from the ground up. This is necessary if you are not running Windows XP, or if for some other reason you simply choose to do the whole system overhaul instead of an update. However, you must still meet the system requirements listed above. To do this, simply insert the CD and follow any instructions as they appear on your monitor. It is important to note that if you are choosing this type of upgrade, you MUST make copies of all your files, settings, and applications to an external storage device. The clean Vista install is literally clean, and will remove any personal information; you must then reinstall your personal files after Vista has successful uploaded

I was so frustrated with my computer I was going to throw it out the window. It kept freezing on me. My co-worker said I should try DriverDetective because it will clean out my registry. I ran DriverDetective and it updated 24 drivers. Surprisingly my computer stopped freezing. I run DriverDetective monthly and it never ceases to amaze me how many easy it is to keep my pc up to date!

My computer kept crashing with illegal operation errors. At first I thought it was a virus, but my antivirus wasn't able to find anything wrong. I ran your software and found over 30 outdated drivers!!! After it corrected them, my computer was no longer crashing! Thank you for saving me a lot of time and headache! Y ou fixed my PC when nothing else did!
