Strange why they would not work in x32 for me? Can you play a video on say youtube with x64 IE?

No video's with the 64 bit browser because the Adobe flash player for 64 bit isn't quite out yet. But they play in the 32 bit browser no problem there.

All of those site's you posted worked fine with my 64 bit browser though.

Adobe site says this...Adobe is working on Flash Player support for 64-bit platforms as part of our ongoing commitment to the cross-platform compatibility of Flash Player. We expect to provide native support for 64-bit platforms in an upcoming release of Flash Player following Flash Player 10.

It sounds like you had a problem with Internet Explorer, not Windows 7. There are plenty of alternatives to IE.

What was the rest of your experience like with Windows 7?

The sites I posted worked in x64 IE, just not in x32 IE.

On another note, will I loose much speed if I go back to Windows x32 with my new system? (see my specs)

Cheers!

The problem was IE not windows 7. It is not my browser of choice, but as a web designer, I must test in IE.

I liked Win 7, but would not use it yet.

Those sites worked fine for me with both browsers no problem at all. One of your drivers must be messing up 32bit IE for some reason. So far the only thing that messes up 32bit IE are the Asus Xonar drivers unless you install the patch but that doesn't seem to apply here.

Thank you for testing those sites. I am going to take a long nap and think of what operating system would be best for this new box.

Moving back to WinXP from Win7RC
I am just curious if it is possible to re-install Windows XP Home once I have installed Windows 7 RC? I am pretty sure it is, but the main thing I am concerned with is re-validating the key for XP. Will I run into a problem if I ever wanted to move back down to XP before I upgrade to Win7 for good?
