Hello Paulclark,

Which operating system are you using right now? I will advice that you check the system specifications of your computer so that you can know which operating system will work well on your computer. Just right click on computer and then properties to view the specifications.

If the system has enough hard disk space and RAM size I will recommend that you install windows 7. Just get windows 7 installation CD which you may have to purchase and then insert it in the DVD drive of your computer. Restart the computer and then press any key to boot from the CD if the computer asks you that. The installation process will begin.

It will reach a point where it will ask you to choose the drive where the OS you are installing will reside, format the partition that has the old OS and place it there. Continue with the other installation steps till you finish.
