Need to reinstall win7 pro to clear some problems, but would like to keep installed programs and other data. My version of win7 came from an install disk with SP-1 included.

Does presence of SP-1 prevent a upgrade/reinstall?


Suggestions please,

Frank

It should not be a problem. To keep the installed programs you would just be installing overtop the existing installation.
