Default Windows 7

I am having trouble installing Microsoft Updates . I have an older computer XP. If I use Windows 7 will that automatically eliminate that problem?

Fix the problem? Probably. Any clean install of windows is likely to fix an issue updating. THe better question is what kind of problems are you having?

My computer is about six years old.When I go to the Microsoft update site. New updates will download, but not install for some reason. I've been wanting to get the Windows 7 so this will be a good time if it also solves the update problem.

I could be a vrius or spyware stopping you from installing Windows updates. Give your computer a virus and malware scan, thats all I can think of. By the way, I love Windows XP Professional.

I'll check the specs of the computer before getting windows 7. You might need to upgrade the computer first
