Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit / XP Home sp3

I just wanted to add my 2 cents worth along with gregrockers great suggestions.
Once everything is the way you want it and follow his advise I would also like to recommend creating a restore point before you install any new programs or make any changes. I've found this to be a good idea that way if you don't like the program or the change you can easily do a system restore. And your back to normal very quickly and easily.Fabe
