I do not recommend an upgrade. backup your files and do a clean install. xp gets complicated.

Upgrades are a risk.I recommend getting rid (cleaning) your whole system.Make sure you do Windows Update after you have installed XP because on XP some of your ports are vulnerable.

Who\'s that team they call United?, Who\'s that team they all adore? They\'re the boys in red and white And they play with all their might,And they\'re out to show the world how they can score! So bring on Sunderland and Arsenal, Bring on Spaniards by the score, Barcelona, Real Madrid, They may make a gallant bid, But they\'ll only find the reason why we roar.
