Hello sir/madam,

When the upgrade is complete, you will have a new edition of Windows 7 running on your computer. you don't need to do anything. (you don't need to backup your files or folders, because it will only upgrade your windows. it will keep your current files on the harddisk)

if you want we can go step by step together. please let me know.
