    Have XP64 installed with all the drivers, and while all works browsing is
    terribly slow compared to the XP Home. I have used the 32 and 64 bit version
    under XP 64 and both are real slow. The XP Home works very nice. At a
    lost..

  2. You are talking about a web browser right? Possibly something to do with
    your ISP.

    there too.

    as fast as the 32bit browser

  8. This is just as a result of lack of support for 64-bit IE, this change over
    time anyway.

    What is your hardware configuration?

    There is a known problem with nVidia boards and the nVidia Firewall
    software causing slow interaction with the Internet in x64.

    Do you have a nVidia board?

    Slow in what way?

    If you download a large (>10MB) file, do you get full transfer speed?

    Is the graphics driver a generic one? (A generic driver would be noticably
    slow processing even a "DIR" in a command line window) Try updating the
    driver and make sure acceleration is set to full speed under Troubleshooting
    (Display properties -> Advanced).

    I tell which is which?

    Thanks

  15. Arg, never mind my previous question.. figures that once I asked I would
    then pop up the start bar and have it stare me right in the face.. heh..
    never even noticed it in the 3 days since I installed the trial..

    D'Oh!
