Hi

I don't think that's enough computer for Windows 7.
The minimum is probably 2 gigs of ram, and my Windows folder uses about 20 gigs of disk space all by it'self.

I would guess that you would be better off sticking with Windows XP.

Welcome to the forums :)

As Mike suggested, it would be best to stick with Windows XP unless you plan to upgrade your hardware. Windows 7 requires at least 512 MB of RAM but runs hellish slow with anything less than 2 GB.. The Celeron line of Intel's is fairly out and underpowered.

If you added a stick of RAM you might get a half decent experience otherwise stick with XP for now. :)

Hope this helps and cheers to Mike as well :)
