Choosing Installation option
If your current operating is Windows Vista, then you could choose upgrade install of the Windows 7. Using the Upgrade option you could upgrade to Windows 7 with all your current operating system settings and the data in it. The upgrade install is only possible if your current operating system is Windows Vista. If it is not, then it results in crash of your installation process. Sometimes the system gets hang and you would have to restart the system. Another problem is you could upgrade only from the compatible versions of the Windows Vista and Windows 7, ie. you could not upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate from the Windows Vista Home, but could upgrade to Windows 7 Home.
For the security of your system, Windows 7 allows you to set user name and passwords for the system administrator. You should remember the passwords you are typing. If you forget it, you could not enter into the system again.
While installing Windows 7, you could choose the network for your system. There would be the options of Home network, Work network and Public network. You should take care to choose the correct network for your system. Choosing a trusted network (Home network) on public spaces would increase the vulnerability of your system.
