Is your processor dual-core or single core? That will make a big difference.

1. Post a screencap of your computer's basic info. Right click on My Computer, and click properties.
2. Make/model of your computer? (I.e. Dell Inspiron 1545)

That'll give us a better picture of what you're running.

i'm pretty sure it has hyperthreading, i mean a mate said it depends what version i pick really.

i keep my computer quick with the following program's aswell:

ccleaner
defragment
disk cleanup.

also if you want i can post my upgrade advisor results, maby that will help aswell?

I would recommend thinking about more RAM in the future, but your computer should run W7 32bit just fine. You won't be able to run 64 bit windows with that processor, however.

If you wouldn't mind too much, there is a program called speccy, by piriform, that would give us detailed information about your hardware, without revealing any personal information, that would be good. I would also try the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor - Download - Microsoft Windows

I will also discourage the use of ccleaner in windows 7.

Excellent post with one exception. Ccleaner is awesome on Seven or Vista, just dont use the registry portion.

It's a single core, running at 2.4GHz flat. Hyperthreading is between 2 or more cores. Also, I see you have the classic theme running to get better performance. I'd have to say I can't recommend this computer for Windows 7. It may be able to basically handle Starter or Home Edition, but you would likewise have to strip it down. You'd get better performance out of your machine sticking with the setup you have. Unless you could upgrade to more ram or other components, sorry.
