Hi guys, I'm new and hope this is the right place to post this question. Can anyone tell me, if the "Microsoft Windows Anytime Upgrade - Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional Operating System Software" that you see addvertised everywhere, is a CDrom or download application.

Most all of us agree that an upgrade is not the route to take. It leaves useless files on your system and can cause conflicts.

Save all you Documents, Pictures, contacts, videos, music, etc to a flash drive,

Be aware, you will need to re-install your 3rd party applications.
