Just seen your How To Do An Upgrade. I have just got a new pre-installed Acer PC so when it says it keeps all programs, files and settings does it affect any of the manufacturers programs that were on the PC in addition to the windows programs

Anytime upgrade only adds-on the Programs & Features from version to version.
