I just received my 7 Home Premium upgrade disk from HP.
Clean install is obviously better. The thing is that I have SOOO many programs that I have spent many many hours customizing. I will have to re-download many of these programs, which will results in days and days of downloading/installing/customizing. I also have tons of add-ons for Firefox.
Is there any way to make set all of my settings and preferences easier when I reinstall each program? For example, for iTunes alone, I would have to save every playlist, my entire library, iPhone apps, ringtones etc. Would Windows Easy Transfer save my iTunes library, Firefox addons etc?
My HP PC came with a 15-month license Norton Anti-Virus but did not come with a disk. What about my video card and sound card drivers
? How would I reinstall it? How about the other HP pre-installed programs?
I have about 137 total programs installed. Many are just updates/patches or codecs for other programs such as Photoshop/Norton Anti-Virus etc.
I am going to hold off on installing 7 until I can get these questions answered. Thanks in advance.
