Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor

Those of you out there that are planning on upgrading to Windows 7 may want to pay special attention to today’s tip. We learned about the system requirements for Microsoft’s upcoming upgrade awhile back, but what if you’re still unsure as to whether or not your PC can handle it?

That’s where this no-frills, free download from the folks at Microsoft comes in. It’s called the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor. It’s still in the beta stage right now, but from what I experienced, it works just fine.


Simply download the program and follow the prompts. In a couple of minutes (or more, depending on your system) you’ll be given a generated report on what requirements your computer meets or falls short of. No more wondering, folks! This handy little app will do it for you and then let you know what needs to be upgraded to accommodate Windows 7 when it releases this Fall.
