Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

Just bought computer with no program installed which one should i install

Answers :

Depends how old your computer is. If it can handle it, I''l put Windows Vista. Handke it as in, for Vista you need atleast 2 gb of ram and a hard drive of atleast 120 gb. If it can't handle Vista, I suggest Windows Xp. Doesn't matter which one (XP Professional, XP Home, etc.).
If you want the easiest and most reliable for a pc,go with windows XP
