Anouther staff laptop bought to me today with 'Windows Home Security' reporting viruses all over the place and asking for a credit card number to remove them.
Wipe clean and re install windows I think, currently running XP going to try an upgrade to windows 7.
Dell Inspiron 6000:
more than 4 years old i think.
40 gig ata HDD
Intet Pentium M 1.6 cpu
Install from DVD with no problems, but when reaching windows found a few devices not install:
Simply downloaded the drivers for XP from dell and installed. Tested OK
Right clicked in device manager and told it to update drivers from the internet, took a min but worked fine. Tested OK
Intel installed by running windows update. Tested No aero but seems ok.
Windows 7 System rating:
Processor = 3
Memory = 3.9

It is possible to Put Windows 7 on a Dell inspiron 6000.
