What does this link mean in my system information?

In the control panel / system security / system (information). Under Service Pack 1, there is a link; get more features with a new edition of windows 7.

What is that link? Does it mean, I'm not running the latest version of W7 (I have the Home Premium version)? If it's no big deal, I'll just go ahead and forget about it. .... :grin:

Anyways, just noticed the link, so I thought I'd ask.

Thanks! ... :cheers:
Lance

It means you can (pay to) upgrade to a version of 7 with more features than Home Premium (Pro or Ultimate IIRC). Unless you want to remotely connect to your computer (remote desktop), use bitlocker encryption, join "domains", or a few other features included in the more upscale versions, you are not missing anything (and are current with your version of 7 unless you move to 10). For most people those are features they would never use anyway.

Thanks, Rob! I'll resist clicking on the link, and leave it alone! ... :cheers:
