Hellooooo. The old PC that my neighb had and which I replaced for him a few months back (still going very strong, phew...) - is running Vista. As I hate throwing stuff away and from sheer curiosity, I am going to wipe the machine (to clear away his old files) and install Win 7 to see how it behaves. I have upgraded the RAM to its MAX amount! 2GB... From 1.5GB. Man, it's gonna flyyyyyyyyy... (I first stupidly bought 4GB - 2 sticks of 2GB each) but the mobo wouldn't handle it.) I have also purchased Win7 for the princely sum of £2.78 (bona-fide code, and a download link). OOokkkkaaaayyy, the machine has a legit copy of Office 2003 on it that I don't want to lose (no back-up disc), so my Q is - if I carry oot a Factory restore, will Office also be wiped or will it be reinstalled from a 'ghost' like the Vista? Ta muchly.
