The problem is new security threats are showing up every day and XP will be open to them in 2 months and this does not mean viruses. ....
Even with a firewall, these Windows security threats can still get through???
I'm not opposed to upgrading. I just don't want to lose my software. I ran the Windows7 Upgrade Adviser on this laptop, and it said to check Lenovo for Windows 7 available drivers for the sound card and a couple other things and I'm stuck with the 32-bit version because of the processor.
My two desktops are 64-bit compatible so maybe I'll upgrade the ham shack computer first and go from there.
Decisions, decisions...Nothing's ever easy...LL
