4yrs ago, my computer came with a pre-installed Vista and an offer to upgrade to win 7 when it was going to be launched. I got the upgrade CD at that date and installed Win 7 which worked perfectly until lately.
In order to reinstall, do I first have to go back to vista with my vista restore CD's and then upgrade again to win 7 ?
Or should I only pop in the win 7 upgrade ? It's a companion DVD and it says "This disc does not contain the Windows 7 Operating CD"
The reasons for re-installing are the frequent crashes I get lately, mostly in Mozilla which uses about 400.000k when only on youtube, yahoo and facebook. (Reinstalled Mozilla, Flash player, and I don't have a lot of add-ons).
But, in general my PC seems like it's struggling to do everything, and it was very fast just a few months ago (for my needs)
I have 4GB RAM
64 bit Win 7 Home edtition
I ran a scan with Minitool box. Does this have anything to do with my computer working so hard on minor tasks ?
