Nero 9 running very slowly on Windows 7 x64, was fast on Windows 7 x86

I wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction -

I was running Windows 7 x86 with Nero 9 working well. Was prompted to upgrade to Win 7 x64 to get my full 4GB RAM operational (only 3GB were able to be used with the x86 version). The rest of my software is running the same or better, but strangely Nero 9 Ultra has become very slow with DVD burning (only single-layer tested so far). Yes it's a 32-bit app but that shouldn't matter, should it? Any solutions or can someone point me n the direction of a good 64-bit DVD-burner?

Also: Uniblue Speed Up My PC 2009 is incompatible with x64 OS... anyone know of a similar utility that will work clearing out the junk etc.?

I should say that Nero is still saying it's burning DVDs @ max for my laptop's drive (8x) but taking much longer about it. Even the caching of files seems to take forever
