  • An Upgrade will preserve installed programs. It may also carry over Windows Registry errors.

    A Custom install will not; you'd have to re-install them all. The old OS files will be moved into a windows.old folder, which you'd delete if you wished to recover the disk space. (That is most easily done by using the Disk Cleanup tool, under Administrative Tools.)
