    Can I upgrade to premium and have all my files,settings,programs etc carried over automatically or do I need to save them to a external hard-drive or something? I'm on a laptop,2gb,I've ran the Update Advisor which says I can update from my current V.Home Basic to Home Premium.

    You shouldn't loose any files or settings; however things can happen and you should have your critical data backed up whether you upgrade or not.

    Scan the crap out of your system for spyware etc before upgrading.
    Then uninstall you antivirus and reinstall your anti virus after the upgrade many times an av will fail the upgrade
