Windows – Need to upgrade Windows XP to Windows 7 without losing data

updateswindows 7windows xp

I have a desktop with Windows XP on it that I urgently need to get it updated to Windows 7. I have heard from a friend that you need to do a clean install. Or is there a upgrade option, losing any data is not an option what would you suggest I do perhaps if I updated to Vista then to 7 would that work?

You can use the Windows Easy transfer to transfer files and settings. Software will have to be reinstalled though.
