What you need to do before upgrading to Vista.

Planning on manually upgrading your Windows XP workstation to Vista? Here are four things you must be sure to do:

Run the Upgrade Advisor to see whether your hardware configuration will support upgrading to Vista. You may need to beef up your machine for it to run Vista, or you may decide to ditch it and buy a new, more modern computer.

Back up everything. EVERYTHING.

Check for viruses on your system, then disconnect from the Internet and disable your antivirus software prior to upgrading.

Use Windows Easy Transfer to copy your user data and settings to your new machine (if you bought a new computer for running Vista). ')}
