"i heard i can put a pentium Dual-Core"

I don't know where you heard that but you heard wrong. Here's the board used in the W3507 & the CPUs it supports:

And why would you want to run Vista? Increase you memory amount to 2GB, install a cheap video card to get you off the crappy onboard video & be done with it.

Why would you take the word of someone that doesn't even back up his answer with a link? Besides, if you read the answer again, he doesn't say that the CPU will work on the eMachines board, he recommended the Pentium dual core AND a board to go with it.

I posted a link to an eMachines upgrade site. If you didn't bother to look at it, here's the CPUs your board supports:

"• Support for an Intel® Pentium® D processor in an LGA775 socket with an 800 or 533MHz system bus
• Support for an Intel® Pentium® 4 processor in an LGA775 socket with an 800 or 533MHz system bus
• Support for an Intel® Celeron® D processor in an LGA775 socket with a 533MHz system bus"

As for the issue with fonts, you realize that you can simply add them to XP, don't you? All you need to do is download the ones you want, then put them into C:\Windows\Fonts folder.
