Easy Solution for Converting from XP to Windows 7
Microsoft (Nasdaq:MSFT) Windows 7 has been one of PC's best operating systems to date. You're tired of the limitations of Windows XP and didn't want to give Vista a try after all the negative reviews it got.
Windows 7 is supposed to be everything that Vista wasn't, but that doesn't mean getting it set up on your existing computer is going to be easy. That's because Microsoft isn't supporting upgrading from XP to Windows 7. The only way to get Windows 7 set up on your existing PC is to overwrite everything on your computer, which would cost you all your files and applications
Did you know there's an easy solution?
If you want to upgrade your computer from XP to Windows 7 and not lose all your files and programs, you need Laplink's PCmover Windows 7 Upgrade Assistant.
There's no need to copy files to external media and no need to reinstall all your applications. PCmover does it all for you without any external storage, without copying files, and without having to find your old CDs and serial numbers
First, run PCmover and follow the easy-to-use wizard. Then install Windows 7, choosing "custom" install but do not reformat. After the Windows 7 install, run PCmover again. That's it - you're done. Everything is exactly how you want it - without copying files or reinstalling programs.
When upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7, PCmover makes sure all your existing applications (such as Microsoft Office, iTunes, e-mail and much more) are where they should be. No need to find old CDs or serial numbers; no need to buy that software again.
"We believe that Windows 7 will prove to be the best and most popular operating system yet, but there are a few implementation hurdles," says Laplink Chief Operating Officer Randall Clark. "With PCmover, whether upgrading an existing PC or migrating to a new PC, moving to Windows 7 becomes incredibly simple."
No need to worry, because PCmover gives you:
* Easy undo - in case you make a mistake when moving, you can fix it in minutes.
* Free technical support - just in case you do need some help.
* A 100 percent money-back satisfaction guarantee from Laplink, a trusted name in software for more than 25 years.
PCmover has received the prestigious Editor's Choice Award from "PC Magazine," which wrote: "It's worth the price of purchase for Vista users, because it's better than what Microsoft offers, and it can be a lifesaver for XP users, who aren't supported at all ... I think Laplink has addressed what is possibly the biggest obstacle to anyone wanting to upgrade to Windows 7, and I can't recommend the software highly enough."
For less than $40, you can get PCmover from Laplink and have a seamless upgrade to Windows 7.
