Not to worry, a couple ways to deal with the pain of installing Windows 7 on your XP machine. Also don't forget to gather all the license keys either off product boxes or from e-mails.
Gather your CDs and external drives or whatever you used to store the programs earlier and get to installing.
For some programs, you might want to download the latest versions. It's all there in a folder called Windows.old, where you can manually move everything back into the proper directories under Windows 7.
Whichever way you decide to go, once you're done, do one last thing.
Image your drive again with Macrium Reflect so you have a backup of your new Windows 7 machine.If that doesn't work, check the manufacturer's Web site.
