  • 1. No Themes?
    I did a search in 64-Bit computing and found one thread on this subject, but the poster didn't get a response. I can't find any themes settings for my display. Doesn't the 64-Bit OS support themes? Like the fish aquarium, etc. There isn't anything in the Downloads for Microsoft themes either just games. Will purchased screensavers work with 64-Bit OS?
  • 2. Spyware?
    Can anyone recommend a free anti-spyware to use with Vista 64bit? SpyBot and Adaware won't work!!!!!
  • 3. Games Folder after SP1
    I know there are other posts floating around about Vista not remembering folder's view settings, but I have a very specific issue. Since SP1, the Games folder no longer shows the Preview Pane. If I turn it on, it turns it on for all windows. I can not find a way to get around this problem. Does anyone know of a solution? - John
  • 4. Stopping Programs From Rotating Cores on Multi-Core System
    I have XP Pro x64 on an Intel quad core processor. When I am playing multiple simultaneous instances of Everquest, I notice on the Task Manager that the different Everquest sessions are being rotated (seemingly randomly) between different cores, and occasionally, they ALL end up on the SAME core, resulting in everything freezing. My computer can easily handle 3-4 Everquest sessions on a single core, just not 6-7. Ive tried to manually set each instance's affinity via the task manager but its not allowed - and I dont know why. Im using Wineq2 and have the innate Everquest affinity setting to off. No combination of Affinity Settings within both Everquest and WinEQ2 solve this problem. Im told by tech support its an XP issue not Everquest or WinEQ2. So my question is, how do I STOP the OS from rotating my multiple instances of the same game around and force them onto discrete non-changing cores? Also, is there a way to bypass the NOT ALLOWED problem in the task manager and Force then Everquest instances to evenly distribute amongst the 4 cores? Any and all help or advise would be greatly appreciated. Ron
  • 5. Vista x64: 6 GB RAM installted, 4991 MB shows up
    Hi all: I am running Vista x64 on an ASUS P5 motherboard which says it can support up to 8 GB RAM. I have 2x2 GB chips in memory bank one, and 2x1 GB chips in memory bank 2 for a total of 6 GB. However when I start the machine, in the BIOS the memory shows up as 5056 MB, and in Vista I show 4991. Can anyone make some suggestions? Thanks. John.

You have just experienced the "File System Redirection" of the Wow64. The 
64-Bit explorer displays the content of the %windir%\System32 directory 
where the 64-Bit binaries are stored, whereas the 32-Bit explorer displays 
the contents of %windir%\SysWow64 where the 32-Bit binaries are.

May be you want to have a look at this Wow64 presentation:

OK, Thanks, yes i understand,
i had a look to msdn....or anywhere at msft.

Now (on that) i have a new "meditation": If you have knowhow or 

if I do a backup, or an image, from *within Windows with an older 32bit- 
version (older means available now)
i should have an eye on these folders.
might be (have not checked it) internal ntbackup will have either this or 
that result, may be both...
further i guess i may have "64bit" results if i do a remote access (drive$), 
or both ?
if i do an image for backup/restore, i am on good side, if i do it from 
outside OS

any else ?

regards juergen

Hi Juergen,

To my knowledge, current 32-Bit backup software will run in the Wow64 on x64 
systems, and as a consequence, they will have file system redirection, which 
means that they will show the contents of %window%\SysWow64 and present it 
as being %windir%\System32. You should get a Windows x64 compatible version 
of your backup solution from your software vendor.

x64 versions of Veritas and Atempo backup solutions should be available 
shortly, as mentionned on this page:

Windows XP Pro x64 Machine comes with a 64-Bit version of NTBackup. This 
means that NTBackup will show you woth System32 and SysWow64 directories, 
and can backup/restore them.

A remote access to the whole disk through \\machinename\c$ shows the whole 
filesystem, which means that you'll see both the 
\\machinename\c$\Windows\System32 and \\machinename\c$\Windows\SysWow64\ 

I guess so but I'm unsure. May be someone can have an more detailled answer 
to this question.

Ghost 9.0 would copy the x64 image while running xp32 but after installing 
the image it would corrupt. Retrospect 7.0 installs and functions properly 
in x64.

1.Win7/Vista printing from 32bit to 64bit or 64bit to 32bit

Greetings All,

What is up with print jobs just hanging ???  Printing either from Vista or 
Win7 64bit to Win7 32bit ???  going from a 32Bit Vista or Win7 will have 
issues printing to the Win7 64bit too!

I have tried the 'local port' setup, and I am NOT new to this rodeo... I 
have trouble shot printers for a couple decades now...

Printer Sharing is setup and functions FINE for 32bit to 32bit....
All systems are in the same workgroup
All systems are legal software
All systems can share resources except printers
All systems have updated patches

I have 2ea HP Printers
 - Laserjet 1022 USB
 - Color Laserjet 3600n

As you might imagine, the 3600n runs *flawlessly* whereas the 1022 will not.

As soon as the 32bit host system reboots, the print job from the 64bit 
system will print.

Only when I cross the 32bit with the 64bit do I get BIT!

It's not so bad when it is MY issue, but when I walk into a client's 
office... that would not be cool

Enlighten me...  what is the solution?

Much appreciated... 

2.64bit internet browser works, but 32bit aren't.

Hi All.

I'm not sure what caused this weird symptom. but I still doubt Avast! 
after installed Avast free-home AV apps onto my vista 64 ultimate. 
almost every network releated apps aren't running. (mostly 32 bit apps.)
include latest firefox, google chrome browser, 32bit internet explorer 

but 64 bit internet explorer is surely works. (maybe it's only network-app 
that I can use.)

problem is, avast uninstalltion isn't work either!
so I removed manually, services, registries but no luck.

pinging, ftp via Command works
mostly, games, media players streaming, apps are NOT works.

and there is no suspicious log in Event Viewer.
Network Center says "no problem". 

anyone out there shed a bright light onto me?

Thanks in advance.

3.Ho to make 32bit IE my default browser in 64bit environment

I am using the XP Pro x64. The 64bit IE is not really usable. Here's why:
  -- Cannot open PDF documents
  -- Cannot view Flash
  -- Some websites make it go on 100% CPU while they work fine on 32bit
  -- Some AVI files won't play
  -- Some HTML is shown differently (I mean, rendering bugs)
Yes, I can open the 32bit version when opening IE, but what I am looking for 
is a way of telling the OS to use the 32bit IE by default when clicking on 
links in Outlook or opening favorites.
I have been struggling with this 64-bit IE for two months now and I am 
really sick and tired of it. I am ready to even uninstalling the 64-bit 
version completely if someone tells me how.
Thank you.

4.switching from 64bit to 32bit now then back to 64bit later

I just upgraded from XP Pro 32 bit to Vista 64bit Ultimate (Upgrade version). 
 Unfortunately, several of my mission critical programs (Adobe Production 
Studio) will not run on the 64bit OS.  My Vista Ultimate upgrade comes with 
two versions 32 and 64 bit.  My question: can I "reinstall" or switch to the 
32bit version now to run my programs and then later when the programs become 
compatible "reinstall" or switch back to the 64bit OS?  Will Microsoft allow 
me to switch from 64 to 32 and back using the same license on the same 

5.Different results for user logging on at different workstations (NT4.0)

I have a situation where a user running an application on WTS 2000 experiences different results depending on where he logs in

For example, if he logs in from his workstation (NT4.0), the application will not work. But if he logs onto the WTS from another workstation (NT4.0 or XP), everything works fine

Can anyone provide a clue as to why a user would be prevented from running an app only on one particular workstations's RDP connection
