Bother appeared as: 'Windows 7' so, it is quite confusing for me to choose. Is there a way to change the name like into: 'Windows 7 32-bit' & Windows 7 64-bit' rather than just, 'Windows 7'.
I remembered XP day where I can change the name using msconfig but I can't seems to find it now.

Sorry for the trouble again!

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) Build 7601

Hi all, I'm back with some questions regarding my new Windows 7, 64-bit.
I have noticed that certain things is different from my previous 32-bit settings and is checking if that is alright.

1.) Java no longer will auto-update?
2.) When I install Microsoft Office 2007, I usually have Office Groove added to my context menu but now, I don't get it.

They are not that important but just checking.

Sorry and thanks!
