Be Ready for Vista

Yes, you may feel like you’ve been bombarded with Windows Vista news this week and well, today is no exception. Now, please don’t get mad at us! We’re just trying to get you all prepared for what the new operating system will bring. You have to appreciate that, don’t you?! Well, either way, today I’m going to tell you some things you can start doing to prepare your computer for Vista.

So, you’ve probably been in a debate with yourself lately as to whether you’re going to upgrade your XP computer to Vista or not. If your decision is swaying toward the “yes” sign, then you’ll want to pay attention to these suggestions. If you plan on migrating to Vista, now is the time to get your computer ready. The first thing you should do is clean out your system. Get rid of any programs, files, etc. that you don’t use or need anymore. If you have a program on your computer that you haven’t used in over a year, remove it! Chances are, you’re not going to need it. It’s best to get your computer cleaned out and organized before moving up to Vista.

Next, you should do a backup of your computer. This will ensure that you won’t lose anything in the transition process. Here’s a great tip to follow for doing that. You can also run a defrag on your system, which will help get rid of some unnecessary items. You should do all of these things and anything else you deem necessary to each computer you plan on upgrading. When this is all done, you will be ready for the January 30, 2007 release of Vista. There’s nothing like being on the ball!
