Windows 7: New to 64 bit

Actually two more questions:

I have always used K-lite mega codec with Windows mainly because it installs Media Player Classic which I like. I don't really think this should matter since it just identifies the media type and should not affect how my OS runs.

Also does Firefox have a 64 bit version. I use it for downloading video clips. I would think would not matter either but one never knows.

I too am a big fan of K-lite codec pack, been using it for years.

Firefox do have a 64 bit version:-

I'm using K-Lite and Media Player Classic on a 64-bit machine. Both 32-bit versions.

I'm also using 32-bit Firefox. I don't know if there is a 64-bit version--but you don't need it.

I dont think I've installed a codec pack since XP, Win7 & VLC plays everything I come across out of the box.

IMHO MPC + ffdshow produce a much better picture than VLC, which I think highlights any compression artifacts in the source material.

I've seen plenty of low bitrate 1080p video in VLC that makes it look worse than a SD Divx encode.

I haven't tried VLC but running Free JetAudio Basic added with K-Lite codec never have any issue on playing almost all types of AV files.

Calibre (for my ebook reader)Should be fine
Dreamweaver (two years old)Should be fine
Office 2003Should be fine
Newsbin version 4 (yes it is old but works great with win 7 pro 32 bit)Not sure
Quickpar v.9Not sure
Cyberlink Power DVD v 9Not needed, as Windows 7 plays DVDs and so does VLC.
Smart Defrag (is there a 64 bit version)Not needed. Just use built-in defragger
My answers are in blue. I wouldn't mess with themes, either, if they require editing the OS. No point in causing stability issues. Use approved themes, or don't bother.

Thanks guy I think I have enough information now to make intelligent decisions.

BTW I have used Microsoft Themes for years on Win 7 Pro 32 bit along with the Universal Theme Patcher and it has worked great for me.

We've seen quite a number of threads where people ended up repairing their OS or reinstalling due to editing themes. I never see the need to take chances with my stability like that.
