  1. Thank you for sharing the basic instructions on how to install Windows 7 to your PC, since we are going to migrate from XP to W7 and I think that it would be good to know the gist of installing it. But usually, I let the Ottawa computer support crew to take care of the installation and maintenance process, just to ensure that all the terminals in our office are all good to go.
