My new laptop came preset up with Win XP.I used the accompanying Win 7 32bit installation CDs and installed Win7. The process creared a Folder called Windows.old (presumably XP? as a callback?).

Can I safely delete this folder Windows.old from My Computer and if so are there any special issues I should check?

Yep all it is is personal stuff from your old installation. Providing there is nothing in there that you actually want (I would double check just to make sure) then go ahead and delete it, it takes up too much space for my liking lol

Grab your old documents and things out first, as GreacherTech mentioned! Probably don't wanna delete those...
