    The 64 bit really sucks, having sooooo much trouble downloading things, are we REGRESSING?

    • What type of problems are you experiencing with it specifically Elaine? Been working pretty good hear. There is no denying though there are still some legacy apps and drivers that do not work with it and probably never will. Recommendations: check the developer/manufacturers website, find an alternative product that works or consider downgrading to Windows 7 32 bit.
