Yes, there is from the MS site and make sure you get it from there. This way
you know it is the real thing and free from any virus and such.

Hi Darla,

There's a program you can search for and download, which tells you if your
current hardware is compatible with windows 7.  I'd look for that program
and run it, before buying the upgrade.  with something 5 years old, there's
a reasonable chance you might have some hardware it won't support; better to
know ahead of time.

also, one thing to keep in mind, laptops with windows 7 already installed
are selling in the $700 range; while the upgrade alone is likely to be over
a hundred anyway.  it's worth at least having a look before upgrading the
windows.

and finally, one last point, lack of support doesn't mean it will instantly
stop working.  if you don't want to spend any money at all, just keep on
using it until something finally doesn't work.  I know people still running
windows 9x, and that's exactly what they did out of necessity, and it's
worked ok for them.

hth,

Chip

Thanks, Joe; this is great.

How much is Windows 7 for an older PC?  Mine is about 5 years old, and right
now, I don't want to invest in new PC's, and I know what you said about MS
not supporting XP.  I think it is coming up in October 2010 or January 2011,
so, at that point, I might have to do something like getting a new PC.
