Go to the Mesh site and you will find a patch for their 64 bit machines.

There is indeed a fix on the MESH website. I tried it just yesterday and things didn't go entirely to plan. My PC is not booting up correctly and I've detailed a request for advice on a separate posting. My advice is back-up comprehensively (I did) and give it a try, as it presumably works 99% of the time, but be ready for some pain if you're in the 1%. At worst you'll be able to restore your back-up.

Good Luck

Make sure that after downloading SP2 you download all available windows updates as there have been quite a few since it's release if not already included in your sp2 download/cd-rom.

This may help
