How should I upgrade to Windows 7 from Windows XP?

Episode 1110 (2:23:44)

Dale from Pomona, CA

Dale has been running Windows XP and now that Microsoft has killed off support for it, he's looking to upgrade his computer to Windows 7. His company can give it to him in the form of a download. What does he need to do to prepare his computer?

Leo says to get an external hard drive and backup all data. Once he upgrades, he'll need to reinstall all the apps. When he gets the download, there's plenty of utilities for making a disc from the ISO. He can also put it on a bootable USB key, which is also a great idea.
