I have NO idea if it supports 64Bit, but they say it is NOT compatible with 7, well I have it running like a Swiss watch in 7, and dumped all the anti-virus, Win Defender, Firewall and associated BLOATware, NEVER had a virus, don't know what they are !!!! MAY have had one, but after reboot... all back to day one.. even have a Ghost image of C drive when I make any big change...
Are you using the more expensive version? I just get the impression reading the features list that one lets you make modifications and the other not. But that may just be my misimpression. I have to find out if it does 64 bit since I have Sandboxie for 32 bit and it won't work on 64. I'll dig around. Thanks for the reply.

Sorry to OP for OT but I was curious.

Windows 7 7600 OEM

I do still read a few posts, so I may be slow in answering you... but NO, I use the standard version, and it really is my 'best friend'.. like I say, I can't say if it's 64 bit wise, I don't use 64 bit

how to recover space from recovery partition

I upgraded from Windows Vista to Windows 7, and my recovery partition is still Windows Vista. I have no interest in being able to recover Vista. How can I delete that partition and add the space back to my main partition? Way back, I used Partition Magic to do this. Is there an equivalent program now, or is it built into Windows 7 by any luck?
