I had Spyware Doctor running in XP but it wont even install in Vista 64bit

Ad Ware 2008 Plus wont let me register says hard ware code dont match any one got round that?

Before I install Registry Mechinc ( PC Tools)

Does it work in Vista 64?

Is there away to tell if something is ok in Vidta 64bit I see in loads of sites Vista ok etc but dont say about 64bit... Games are the same.

Thank you for your time.

Hi, no real help to you I am afraid, but for what it is worth - IMHO at this point in time, 64Bit has no real advantage over 32Bit, unless you are into serious number crunching, rather than normal Home PC use and Games. My desktop is 64Bit capable (XP SP3) but I only use 32Bit programs on the whole.

In fact I would say 64Bit is very much a disadvantage, as you appear to be finding out for yourself.

I wish I could suggest something more positive!
