Well, I bough a Pc that came with Vista and is going too get te win 7 upgrade disk coming in soon. With the upgrade option, what consequences of the acual upgrade. It has too leave some pieces of vista beind and remanents of the old registry. Is thier anyway to combat this or is it something I just have too cross my fingers with and home none of the registry entries conflict?

It has too leave something behind...

I'm not sure what you think is going to happen exactly. Windows 7 and Vista both use a registry, they both use the same file system, the kernel is largely the same, etc, etc. The only pieces of Vista that will be left behind are ones that are exactly the same as they would be in W7.
