The notification area, on the lower right hand corner of the screen. You can decide whether or not to show things like internet connection, wireless connection, or whatever program like AIM, Yahoo, Dell Camera Software etc. it's next to where the time is.
The problem is, on windows 7, Windows Live Messenger is not even a thing you can show or hide. It NEVER shows up there, for some reason. On Vista, when you are signed off, it still shows in the notif. area as a little green mad with a red X. On Windows 7, whether you are signed on or off, or whether or not the program is even open it does not show up.
That was the problem, but I barely care now.
Also I hardly see the benefit of 64 bit programs or a 64 bit system even, and am confused as to why some programs are labeled x86 instead of just x32 to indicate it's a 32-bit software. How strange and misleading...
A lot of people claim there are 64 bit version of programs, but a lot of them turn out to be fake for instance the other day I was trying to download a 64 bit version of Video LAN (the thing that plays ANY video file
) and it was bogus and didn't work. I like downloading from the official sites, even when they're not 64-bit for my 64-bit operating system, and I don't see what difference it would make even. I read it would be more efficient, but I don't think it would be that noticeable.
