I have win. xp pro and heard that to make an upgrade I need win. 7 pro upgrade. If I upgrade will all my files still be there or do I need to reinstall everything?

upgrading to Windows 7 is like doing a fresh install and reinstall all software.

you will have to backup all you data

a jump from xp to win7 will require a clean install.
there is no upgrade option for this particular move.
period.

Darn, so what you guys are saying is that when I do an upgrade I need to install my StarCraft II again?

DARN! The key code to StarCraft II is on the Internet so I can't reinstall it! Well looks like I will have to stick with xp pro.
