I cannot install latest versions of Adobe or Firefox or Nord VPN due to my XP op. sys. My comp. always runs the busy script warning lately. My current config. Pentium dual core E2160 1.80 GHz,
1.79 GHz 0.98 GB ram. What do I need to turn my machine into Windows 7 that's very fast Thank-you

For Windows 7 you're going to need a new PC as there are no Windows 7 drivers for the OptiPlex 330 - - Only XP & Vista are supported:

As it's 10 years old, you should be looking at replacing it anyway.

Current new PCs come with Windows 10 installed --- it's an excellent OS now that it's been sorted with several updates. Settling for Windows 7 is pointless now -- there's no longer any reason to prefer it over Windows 10.
