Good choice, the 64bit OS is the best step to take.

Let us know if you have any questions.

So I take it you installed the 64bit OS and everything is good?

Yes, everything is working good. Although I'm wondering whether the 57 updates it did were really necessary. It ran SUPER fast when I installed, then it did updates and takes longer to boot up. Hmm.

Glad to hear it's running better for you.

Haven't had any problems with updates, yet, hopefully it will re-gain it's speed.
