Upgrading from 34Bit to 64Bit

Is there anyway to do this besides completely reinstalling windows ultimate edition? I want to do this because i want to use my 8 GBs of ram rather than have 3.5gb ram of 8gb ram usable. What are some important programs that wont work if i do the upgrade? These are mostly the questions that i have in mind, though i might be missing some. Thanks for the help forum!

    You have to do a clean install. There is no upgrade path from 32 to 64 bit.

    I have found no programs that don't work and if there are any Ultimate comes with XP mode.

    I see, thanks for the info. And how do i go about backing everything up? Will i still be about to use my old stuff like my bookmarks+passwords from firefox and my games that are backed up such as sc2?
  3. An external hard drive or a thumb drive or burn the info you need saved to dvd. Bookmarks you can save as a folder......passwords not so much and game files ...maybe. Not sure of Starcraft 2.
