You should be able to upgrade without any problems to Windows 7.
However, it is recommended that you run a an Upgrade Adviser to check for any issues before hand.
Click Here to go to the upgrade advisor page
Proceed to the download page to download Upgrade Advisor.
Are you still there?
Yes. I just downloaded the advisor.
Great. Please run it and if it doesn't reports any error then you are ready ;)
If it does reports any error, then tell me so i can guide with the work around.
Well run now.
HOw it is running. Would you recommend a clear start versus upgrade?
By clear start do you mean a clean install of Windows 7?
I definitely will recommend clean install.

Perform a clean install, it will give you an option to format which will clean out everything from the system, and prepare it for a clean Windows 7 install.5. Download your programs again.
