I have a Dell E521 and I am looking to upgrade to Windows 7. I am currently running the 32 bit version of Windows Vista. Furthermore, I have the 32 bit version and wanted to know if there are any compatibility issues that I should be aware of. Thanks ahead of time for any responses.

If you are currently running Vista, there's no reason you wouldn't be able to install Windows 7. I would run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to identify any major compatibility problems, but you'll probably be fine.

This might help also:

SecurAble probes the system's processor to determine the presence, absence and operational status of three modern processor features:

64-bit instruction extensions,
Hardware support for detecting and preventing
the execution of code in program data areas, ... and
Hardware support for system resource “virtualization.”
