    E-mail Safe?

    "blu" some thing "blu " something ..................is the safe ?


    ,I have just noticed that this keeps saying it is loading data ....................is this good or bad .........is it just the normal E-mail system or have I got some thing going on that should not be ?




    Also running wins XP and everything is running really well...................is it time to think about wins 7.......................how long can I keep running on win XP when Microsoft say they are not supporting it any more ............does that make a big difference if I keep on running XP

    As you can tell I'm abit confused about things...........just want abit of advice Please

    Before making the jump to Win 7 check the Win 7 Compatibility Center and download and run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor. This will give you some ideas if your present system ia able to run Win 7.

    It should be alright to stay with Windows XP for a few more years, if your hard pressed for cash for a new computer right now.
    I have no idea what your trying to communicate here with regard to your "E-mail Safe?", perhaps you could clarify.

    If you are going to stick with Windows XP make sure it has all the latest service packs and updates.
    Windows 7 is best enjoyed on more recent hardware although it certainly can perform on many systems previously running XP.
    The links in Ted's above post is a good place to start if your planning on installing Windows 7 over your current operating system.
    Remember it will have to be a custom clean install if you are planning on installing Windows 7.
