Which OS are you using?

If it is Windows XP, you can do a repair install or upgrade to Windows 7.

If it's Windows 7, you can edit the registry to tell Windows that it is an earlier version and then do an upgrade. Look via Google and you'll find out how to do that. Look for downgrading Windows 7 Ultimate.

If it is Windows Vista, upgrade to Windows 7.

I cannot say that this will definitely work, but it is something to try after you've backup what you need to backup as if you were starting over.
