Welcome
This is the procedure
http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/117366-clean-install-full-version-vista.html
But be aware, you MUST have the correct key number of it will not work after 30 days and you will not have Seven, either.
If you have a key and are not sure if it is valid, call Microsoft to be sure
In addition, problems installing are always possible.
That being said. Seven is better than Vista. It is Vista with a lot more features. I think that if you give it time and learn, you will be happy that you kept it.

Hi richc46, thank you very much for the link and the advice, actually I am not sure if I got the key number, so as you said I best hang on to new windows and see how I get on.

May I suggest that you join our Seven Forum
Windows 7 Forums
I am there, too.
You can take your time with Seven, ask questions and just hang out and learn. Everyone is different, of course, but I think in your case it is the learning curve that makes you unhappy. Use it for a while, I think that your opinion will change.
Good Luck

There may be a key number on the computer.
If you can find it call and see if it is valid. It should be the key for Vista. However, my initial advice, still stands.

While you are still using Windows 7 , first and foremost, do the following....

Create a System Repair disc.
System Repair Disc - Create - Windows 7 Forums

The repair disc will help you regain access to your computer if the system crashed.
