    Thanks for your reply Drew, my comment is this.
    I intend to buy a full version in a month or so, however my evaluation/beta version doesn't start shut shutting down until the 1st of march.
    Since my thread I managed to restore the system with the last successfull boot and it is running okay, fingers crossed.
    Thanks again Lindsay

    Thanks again Drew.
    Yep to liking win7, i will be purchasing a full version this week, the beta version sure runs faster than Vista.
    Question, can i install the upgrade version of Win7 or should i go for a new installation.

    Cheers Lindsay

    You will have to do a clean instal but any docs and personal files will be saved and can be found under "Windows Old" a folder in the new windows
