I'm running both, 64bit is faster

EXCEPT

I'm running 64bit on Q6600 and 32bit on P4 3.0Ghz. ::

Are you using chrome - because on my system it just keeps crashing(runs perfect without flash installed)?

I HATE ADOBE FLASH!

Know issue, use the LAST version of flash, NOT the latest and it's fine.

It loaded a bit slowly at first but in the end I got to view the page.

Well, thank you good Sir, I am just in the process of installing W7 64-bit onto my P. Thanks yo!

EDIT: Wait... so what seems like a legit ISO from the MS site... brought up the error that I've got with the 2 previous downloads? Hmmmmm. Any suggestions on what's going on?

Specs, just on case: E6600, 2GB DDR2 RAM, Seagate 7200.10 320GB (for the W7 beta, clean install) and an 8800GTX.

EDIT#2: Getting the 32-bit version now from a MS server. Hopefully I will be able to install it this time... might wanna do a full format on the 320GB HD.

EDIT#3: Well, I have W7 installed onto my PC and one of the first things I've tried t odo was to open as many windows as fast as I could to make it slow down, or freeze for a bit. Ya... as if.

The only "gripe" was that I've moved documents into music and the other way around - that changed the views and Icould not figure out how to change it back to the default view and there were no system restore points. So I just created a new profile.

Although I've used W7 for only a few minutes now, I am kind of "wow'd"...

Guys, guys... what's going on?

This new messenger is quite different in layout, that's for sure.

EDIT: I've installed W7 onto one of my HDs. When I'm in W7 it does not see the other HD, the one that Xp is installed onto. Also when I choose to boot from the HD with W7 on there is a message three-capital-letters-something - is missing. I have to use the XP drive as the first one and then it brings up a message "Earlier VErsion of Windows" or Windows 7...

Wonder why that is?

Oh I know I've been running since the time it came out. Quick par is dog ass slow still in x64. So are most CPU intensive apps. Games are the same in either. I dont know what you are testing but x64 is still slower than x86 with native x86 apps, which most anything worth a **** is still x86.

We've had this discussion before and it WAS a NO and it IS a NO.
