    I purchased this as an upgrade to Windows Vista. As an upgrade, it was a total failure. After the intital install; upon rebooting the computer, the operating system froze, prompting a continuous loop of recovery and reboot. After several attempts, we ended up wiping out the hard drive and doing a clean install. The only problem was the registration, since it was technically not an upgrade anymore. Microsoft was more than helpful, and got us set up.

    Had heard it wasn'tthat great when first came out, but no problems so far. Just wish Staples would have told me that everything gets removed when it replaces the original Windows version my PC had. I could replace or retrieve fairly well, but it would have been nice to know this downside before install.

    Checked "hard to install" because Toshiba no longer supports Win 7 drivers for their native Win 8 machines on their USA website. Bought laptop with Win 8 installed....Hated It!! Purchased Win 7 Home Premium to replace it, had it installed by Staples Tech Service, now very satisfied with machine and OS.

    It was pretty easy to install. It didn't take that much time to install about an half an hour. It ran all my Vista programs. I wish I had updated to Windows 7 a long time ago.

    We have 2 computers in our business operating and one had W-7 while the other Vista (the older computer). Suprisingly the older computer now with the W-7 upgrade operates faster and more effectively. It can also communicate with the other computer since Vista and W-7 were not real compatible. After thinking I would buy a new computer it was worth the money to get the upgrade software. It took hours to upgrade with the software with many times it restarting. I thought it would originally be an hour but it turned out to be 4-6 hours.

    I finally used this to update a Vista desktop that I have. I never had issues with Vista, but it was time to update. I wasn't ready for Windows 8, and I teach Windows 7 in college. I had a laptop to do that, but my eyes aren't what they were, so I wanted to update the desktop to take advantage of the 25" widescreen monitor. Did not lose any data doing the upgrade and it is running like a top. The only reason that I have it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the time necessary to complete the update. Not saying that is a fault of the software itself, just took a lot more time than I expected.

    I ran to cheeck win 7 compatibility check first then bought it and installed it virtually seemlessly_-no problems. So glad I didn't have to buy new computer. Love the upgrade.

    Taken straight from the box...
    This version of Windows 7 is designed as an upgrade for Windows Vista. If you are upgrading from Windows XP, you will need to back up you files and settings, perform a clean install and then re-install your existing files, settings, and programs.

    Best of luck with it lol

    I bought Windows 7 to use in the future whenever Microsoft stops supporting Windows XP. Windows XP has the features and capabilities needed for the personal and business user. Windows 7 is a slight step-down, but still a very good operating system. I have installed Windows 7 previously and had no issues. However, when upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7, one MUST assure to copy or have the program disks of the installed programs since they will have to be re-installed afterwards.

    I really like the Windows 7. I like the fact that it isn't a lot different from XP which I upgraded from. I've seen the new Windows 8 and don't like it and don't want it. All the new features are good in 7. Thumbs up for 7.

    The upgrade worked easily and didn't trash my files. It did screw up my screen resolution, necessitating download of the monitor drivers.

    It starts up a lot faster than Vista which is why I bought the upgrade. It made me uninstall my graphics driver(s) and the driver that comes with it keeps loosing my monitor connection. The sleep mode has pros and cons - just find it a annoying. It still beats Vista.

    I had an aging dual core PC that was so slow and annoying to use, I just about threw it away. Since it was dual-core I finally gave in and spent the $ to put Windows 7 on it. Wow, what a difference! You can actually turn it on and start using it within a minute. Like a new PC. Vista really was a dog, and Windows 7 is finally what Windows should have been last time.

    Customer Service was advised that my computer was old and I gave them the make, model and year. So now I have to get an exterior DVD reader and then who knows, I am now stuck with [$] program that I may not be able to use or sell.

    Run with Parallels on MAC. Way too expensive over $200 with disk. Apple upgrades are $29.99 and Microsoft over $200...
