just realised i could be using 64bit

hi guys,

i've just been updating my "user experiance" and looking at updating any odd drivers in my main laptop, which i havent done for a couple of months since using windows 7.

i found two interesting things:

1. i still hadnt got the proper graphics driver (now downloading)
2. its telling me i could be using 64bit software.

i hadnt ever looked before, so i have never bothered learning the difference. anyone fancy filling me in a bit? and anyone got a spare x64 rc i can borow to try? lol

How is the driver telling you, you could be using 64-bit?

What CPU do you have? Once we know that we can tell you which version of windows you could be using so please fill in your system info. See my sig for for a program to help you get the info.

you can verify by going to grc.com and download secura. It will tell you for sure. RE: 64 bit 7600 Ms has a 90 trial going on right now.

Hope this helps and let us know if you need something
