Ok well first I am running windows 7 home 64 bit which I upgraded from vista 64 bit which I dont like so I am planning on buying a full retail version of windows 7 professional. Ok so the problems, first I feel my system is not running like it should be, all i really do it watch tv shows and surf the web on my 24inch monitor and play like 12 tables of poker on my 30inch monitor. Just doing those things my computer feels sluggish and like freezes for a sec when trying to multitask which is annoying because I feel like with my system i should be flying through things ( i could be thinking my build is better then it really is, in that case please let me know) prob build it like a year ago if not a little longer here are the specs:

Intel Core i7 920 Nehalem 2.66GHz LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor

CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory

Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD6400AAKS 640GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive

Pioneer Black Blu-Ray Reader and 12X DVD±R DVD Burner SATA

CORSAIR CMPSU-1000HX 1000W ATX12V 2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready

ASUS P6T Deluxe/OC Palm LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard

EVGA 896-P3-1267-AR GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked Edition 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

the next problem is I renewed my antivirus AVG 8.5, so i uninstalled my avg and downloaded the new one AVG 9.0. When trying to install the avg 9.0 kept giving me error so I tried using the system restore which I really dont know about to like 2 days ago thinking my avg will still be on the system. To my surprise the avg was still deleted and now when i download programs it shows up and a file that cant be found so I restart my computer and the file becomes a executable file but then I try to install and get an error of this is not a valid 32 bit application.

Anyone know how to help with any of this would be GREATLY APPRECIATED. Thank you

The only thing I can think of is to try a clean install of windows 7/vista.

Sounds like you're experiencing a conflict. Is the AVG 9 designed for 32-bit OS only?
