I have a question regarding installing Windows 7. I recently ordered the product and it should be here tomorrow.
The problem I'm having is that there is a virus that I cannot seem to get rid of. Would installing Windows 7 take care of this problem? Or will it just make it harder to kill?
Sorry if I posted this in the wrong place
This is totally the right place! Welcome ;)
The previous poster is correct that a full, clean install is safer than an in-place upgrade (which may not even be an option, depending on what editions you're upgrading to and from.) To find out what type of upgrade you'll need to perform, check out this chart: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7...iderations.aspx
All that said, a clean install is still no guarantee of eliminating a virus. Supplementing your shiny new Windows 7 OS with powerful Anti-Virus software is a good start. Microsoft Security Essentials
is a free package available for download, which will get you started on sterilizing and protecting your new system.
What version of Windows are you currently using? What edition of Windows 7 are you upgrading to?
