I got firefox to work in win7 x64, its version 3.0.10 in order to get the flash to work i had to download flash10 from the adobe site and run the install with admin rights. As for itunes I can't say i don't own a ipod.

So you tried "regular" 32 bit firefox? I have it running as well (with flash in 64 bit W7) there must be something else wrong. Sorry.

yea i figured out that the programs aren't the problem but some configuration in windows 7 is preventing almost all of my programs from accessing the internet. they all act as if they are firewalled when they aren't.

I would check the network setting to make sure you have it set to a "home or work" network not a "public" connection. I have noticed that when you change what type of network you are connected on programs are locked out for security reasons. Id take a screen shot but I'm currently at work at the moment.
