How do I get my Windows 7 computer refurbished, and can I keep everything intact after refurbished?

I have electronic dictionaries on my current Windows 7 computer, and when I buy a new computer with Windows 10 installed I will not be able to use these electronic dictionaries any longer.

An alternative would be to buy a pure Linux computer with only Linux hardware and install Windows 7 on that in a VM and then run my dictionary software in that. Would that be viable, and better or worse solution than getting my current Windows 7 computer refurbished?

Can I get my Windows 7 computer refurbished by vising a Dell support center?
