    I can't use my Zboard (gaming keyboard) or fingerprint reader for passwords, can't use microsoft sidewinder joystick, or Logitech wingman wheel. I can't download ANY patches for games or program updates. I can't download the critical update for windows explorer (which is designated for 64 bit but ALWAYS fails to install, with or without virus protection running.
    All games crash at least once during play, Doom3, Farcry (wont install 64-bit update also), Need for Speed Most Wanted, Fear, Halflife 2 ,Time Shift demo ! Hey ! you asked...
  4. ah ok.

    lol

    i guess i should just go back to normal xp pro. shame cos this was version that came pre-installed with laptop. and the xp pro i would install would be from my other system. oh well

    i'll have to think about it
  5. Cant XP Pro x64 run any standard x86 antivirus? It supports emulated 32 bit apps so why not just run PC Cillin 32bit?
  6. i've been told u can but i don't know where to do that
  7. As antivirus runs at a device driver level it needs to be ported to work with a 64bit o/s. There are a few out there and the list is growing, below are a few I can remember;

    Avast!
    Nod32
    AVG (but not Free AVG)
    eTrust 7.1 (CA)
    McAfee Enterprise 8.x
    Symantec Corp

    For more information, try the Microsoft Windows x64 newagroup. This can be found with a news reader (e.g. outlook express) on microsoft.public.windows.64bit.general
  8. For what its worth, I'm currently running the free (pop-up) version of Avira on my XP PRo x64 rig, and it seems to be doing just fine. All I really do on this rig is game, but it picks up this and that every once in a while anyway.
    I'm thinking of switching to Avast! - I've read good things about it.
    I know XP comes with a (one-way) firewall, and my router has one as well, but I would love it if someone would come out with a native x64 bit software firewall like Zone Alarm.
