John you need to decide if you want win 7 32 bit, or 64bit. there are pro's and cons to them both. We need a ton more info abt your system to help

The only cause I know of for being unable to run 32 bit code under Win7 X64 is a driver conflict with the Asus Xonar DX or other CMI-8788 based soundcard.

Newer drivers can fix that, or you can disable the EAX emulation. (One of the processes is HSMGR, if memory serves.)
