Hi , I use x64 ultimate version, but the longer I use it the more problems.
1) worse network, during startup (despite less startup items and many services that I put on manual) the network takes long time to be ready. Hijack checks did not show any strange things.
I have done all the related tips for that, still nothing works a t least not for long time. Always within a week or so it generally is becoming slower.
2) Outlook 2007 is keeping freezing, especially after the latest windows updates. I use a small pst and no add ons.
3) Slow copy function (also for that i used a trick to speed that up) Somehow it seems not right for such system that as user you need to do so many fixes to keep the system running.
4) then compare the services and their dependencies and the privacy rules and notice how much different new privacy rules have been enabled. Big brother is watching ….

Or it is so designed that you are forced to use all services…
