I'm not familiar with Acme but if it's a place you can visit, I'd go back and see what I could get accomplished at no cost, otherwise, get one of your local techie friends to set up to computer to your preferences. If Belarc Security Advisor runs on 64-bit systems, then use it to get the info on your product key and other product keys on your computer.
Microsoft is rather forgiving about installation problems so you will probably be able to take a Windows 7 DVD and install and use the product key you saved, even if you've already "activated".
I admit that I've never tried to reinstall from 64-bit down to 32-bit and don't know what problems you can encounter, however, there are many experts here who I'm sure will have the correct answer.
if thats the case and if microsoft allows me to downgrade to 32 bit, i should do that.
also, is it still possible that if i back up the toshiba software and the software thats made for my laptop and back it on a flash drive by going to:
my computer > hard drive > my program files and click and drag the folders to flash drive and would work on the same laptop but on a 32 bit? (not that its requiring 64 bit but i like the features of my laptop that needs the software for it)
and how exactly can i back up my drivers? (since this laptop has no optical dvd/cd drive-even though its a a laptop with the size of a netbook)
sorry if im asking too much.
