I have an HP Pavilion desktop that came with Vista Home Premium pre-installed. I have had to run system recovery about 5 times since I bought it in 6/07. The back up system which initially worked doesn't and I have to back up files manually.

It crashed again and I'm now having to do a recovery for the 3rd time in less than a year. In addition, the restore point feature is not working.

Am I better off getting Windows 7? I have MS Office 2003, IE 7, plus other software I have put on the computer since I bought it.
