SURT WIN7 64bit

Q: SURT WIN7 64bit

The pc is definitely backleveled since I had to restore. It has all updates up to 7/12. While I have had any problems with updates (so far) I thought that it might be wise to install the SURT. My only concern is whether that would create problems with updates since I am so far behind.


(I could not find an answer for this question which may well be a dumb question.)

Preferred Solution: SURT WIN7 64bit

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: SURT WIN7 64bit

It only corrects any problems it finds - it doesn't install anything new.

Unless you're seeing problems with updating or the like, then there should be no need to run the tool.

Hi every one,

i have this machine which is causing too much headache for me,

this machine was having Windows XP 64 Bit,
and it had a lot of BSOD crashes, then i just decided that it's the time to make the move to Windows 7 for this high performance machine, since i was not able to upgrade to Windows 7 because of some applications just working on Windows XP 64 Bit, but now there is a copy of it,

Any way i'm still having those BSOD crashes,
I have replaced the SSD 500GB hard drive with another regular hard drive with no results,
tried to remove and install nVidia Driver,
tried to install a different version of that driver with no results,
tried to remove McAfee AV and installed Kaspersky Internet security 2013 also no result,

now i have grabbed all the data using SF Tool, and i really hope that u can help me with that issue.

thank you

I purchased the Win 7 Pro Upgrade 32bit via digitalriver, but I've been doing some reseach and probably should have selected the 64bit version.

- Any ideas how I can get the 64bit version?

- For those who ordered the 32bit back-up disc kit for the extra $15 and have received it, does it come with both 32bit & 64bit?

- I've already installed and activated the 32bit version, but when I go to install the 64bit version, will I need to / is there a way to deactivate my initial 32bit install or will this not matter?

Thanks for your advice.

The first two questions call Digital River about a refund and reorder. Have heard that some have had success with that. No need to un activate however if you decide to try to use that Key again then you will have to call MS and talk to them to make it work on another pc if that is your intent. Good luck to you and enjoy!

Hi all,

Hope all is well. I just purchased a Toshiba Satellite P855-S520 laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit), SP1 already installed and would like to upgrade it Windows 7 Ultimate.

I had already purchased a retail version for Win7 Ultimate before (the full version not the upgrade) and would like to use this for the upgrade.

I looked around the forums for some advice and found some very useful stuff but I would appreciate if someone could help with the following. My apologies if the answers were posted already. Must have missed them.

1. I read about the Windows Anytime Upgrade feature. Will AU work with the full Win7 Ultimate retail key or does it specifically work with an upgrade key?

2. If I use the AU and it is successful, will the new Win7 Ultimate key be converted to an OEM version as well? The full-version retail key I have gives me the right to install this to 3 computers. I do not want to lose this right since I may use it for different computers in the future.

3. Is it better to go for AU or a clean install of Win7?

Since I just purchased the laptop, I have no personal data or programs installed so I do not have to worry about losing data. However Toshiba has certain software installed with the laptop. My understanding of a clean install is that everything will be wiped clean and then necessary software e.g. drivers, etc... need to be installed again. On the other hand, once I upgrade to Ultimate perhaps some of this software will becom... Read more

Hi folks.

I have searched through the various threads that deal with this topic but have not seen anything that deals with this specifically.

I have a custom built computer I put together last year. I installed Win7 32bit at the time because I didn't want to bite the bullet and reinstall everything. That time has now arrived.

My computer has:

i7 Core 960 2.67GHz
8GB Ram
1TB HDD (Win7 32bit installed)

I purchased an OEM DVD of Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit and an Intel 180GB SSD drive.

I want to install the SSD drive on the computer and install Win7 64bit OS as a DUAL BOOT. This way I will be able to choose to migrate my applications at my own pace. As I install a 64bit version of my Photoshop CS6 for example, I will delete it in the 32bit OS once I have all my settings, brushes etc. moved over.

Should I ?

1. Install the SSD and get it recognized by the BIOS and the 32bit OS.
2. Boot from the DVD of the 64bit OS and choose the SSD as the location of the installation.
3. Reboot the computer after installation complete

and at that point I should get the dual boot screen?

The above is how I understand the process based on some tutorials I've seen for dual booting XP and Vista. Does this work for Win7 32 and Win7 64?

A:Dual Boot Win7 32bit and Win7 64bit on a second SSD drive

Easy - install the SSD and disconnect all the HDDs. Then install Win7 on the SSD and make the SSD second in the boot sequence (first should be the CD/DVD reader). Then reconnect the HDDs.

When you want to boot from your 32bit system, temporarily change the boot sequence (usually via F12 at power-on).

I have a new Toshiba Laptop (Win7 64bit CORE i3). I would like to run (via usb) and old hdd from my desktop which was 32bit Win7.
I have the old hard drive in a SATA enclosure and running it via USB to my laptop. When I attempt to either copy or read the old hard drive I get a write protect error. I have tried
the MS registry changes to remove "write protection" but the registry entry they call for is non existent in my laptop registry.
My last post on this was annotated as solved...but my explanation was weak. I do not want to run this drive as a permanent addition to my system, I just need to copy some files from the old drive to the new one.
If I attempt to use Control Panel/Disk Management it tells me the old drive is not "initialized". Both options to initialize don't work. Please help I have some very important medical records that must be copied from old hdd to new.

I have purchased and downloaded both 32 bit and 64 bit Windows7 Professional (no CDs or media here only download version)

I sucessfully upgraded from Vista 32 to Win7 32

Then I upgraded my hard disk (140Gb 500GB) and RAM (3GB to to 4GB)

Now I would like to go from Win7 32bit to 64bit

When I try and run the Win7-P-retail-en-us.x64.exe file it upacks the box then stops with this error:"We are unable to create or save files in the folder in which this application was downloaded. Please check the folder properties to make sure that you have security permission on the folder to write flies and that that folder is not read only"
I am the System Admin and I have full rights, and have moved the exe and the setup box files to My Documentsand I have modified the directory properties/attributes but I still get the same error over and over.

I searched the posts and some people stated one needs a clean install others say you can upgrade from any version so I am trying the upgrade here especially since the upgrade from Vista 32 to Win7 32 was smooth and did require all the extra work of a reinstall.

Can someone help me here?


A:Win7 (32bit) to Win7 (64bit) upgrade install error

I believe to go from 32-bit to 64-bit, you will have to boot off the DVD. The installer is a 64 bit application that won't run under 32-bit. Find instructions to create a DVD if you don't already have it.

Good luck!

Just wondering if it would be possible to backup a Win7 32bit system, install a Win7 64bit system then restore the 32bit to the 64bit system?


A:Macrium Reflect: Restore Win7 32bit to Win7 64bit?

NO -- a clean install is required to move from one to the other. IF you restore an MR backup over an install, it replaces the entire contents of the partition. So basically, you would be going back to the version that you saved to backup.

I am working on a Dell Studio 1745 running Win7 64 Home Premium. I need to run a piece of hardware (Tascam US122) that is incompatiable with the 64bit OS. My plan is to partition the drive and install Win 7 32bit on the new partition so I can run the mentioned hardware. I've done this on another machine (Dual Boot XP and Win 7) and ran into a problems with the bootloader. I learned to install older OS FIRST because of that. I'm wondering if installing Win7 32bit on a current Win7 64bit machine will cause a similar problem with bootloaders? I'd rather not have to mess with the bootloaders, but I really need to run this hardware. And, since this is a Dell, with touchscreen, and most IMPORTANTLY, a friend's computer I want to be 100% sure I'm not going to cause issues I can't fix.

So, again, will installing Win7 32bit on a new partition of a Win7 64bit machine cause problems with the bootloader, or any other foreseeable problems?

Thanks a bunch!

I have a legally purchased win7 Premium (32bit) CD. I purchased a new desktop that is pre-loaded with win 10 (64bit). I prefer to stay with win7.
Question 1: If I do a clean install of my win 7, will it work properly? At least until win7 support shuts down in 2020.
Question 2: Since the new computer has 64 bit architecture, is it possible to upgrade my win7 (32bit) to (64bit) using anytime upgrade?
A little info: I understand there may be a little loss in performance, but, for my purposes, that would be irrelevant. I just don't like win10.
I'm a senior on fixed income. Had to save for a full year to buy the new desktop and simply cannot afford to purchase a 64bit win7 (if it is even still available)! ...and Don't really want to go the 'pirate' route.
Any simple (layman) advice would be gratefully appreciated.
Oh, one more thing. I have made a backup of the win10...in case I have to go back to it in the future.

I have read many of the similar posts...but they were either confusing or not quite answering my specifics.

I am trying to upgrade from Win7 32bit to Win7 64bit. A tech? instalked a new HDD for me and put Win7 64bit on it. I have another drive that has Win7 32bit on it that I would like to put Win7 64bit on. I have the new 64bit cd and can read directions, I just have no directions to tell me how to do it. The HDD I want to install on has been formatted Win7 32bit, however there is nothing on it of value now so I am ready to do this thing. I have read the directions on how to do a clean install but have no way to know if this would be classed as a clean install. I may not be the brightest bulb on the tree but I am very careful. It's been a few years since I've had the hood up on a computer but I do know my way around inside, even know what some of those things are in there. If there is some one out there that can set me on the right road to do this thing I will certainly appreciate it. Thanks DonS

A:upgrade from win7 32bit to Win7 64bit

Hello Don, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Is this going to be installed in another computer, or are you having both hard drives in your current computer to dual boot?

Do you have separate product key number for the second installation?

If it's going to be installed on a separate computer and you have a second key to activate with, then yeah you could do a clean install with it like in the tutorial below.

Hello all,

I upgraded my system to Windows 7 32bit (from Vista) back when there was the student discount. And am regretting it now since i work in Photoshop all the time and need more RAM to suppose the work i do. So i'm looking to upgrade my system to the 64bit equivalent of what i already have (Home Premium).
I understand you can't use the Windows Anytime Upgrade for a 32bit to 64 bit upgrade. I also understand you need to do a clean install, which is no problem.

So what my question is, is what product should i buy exactly? Can i get away with an upgrade only? Or do i have to buy the full product?
I still have my Vista CD, so i could re-install the 64bit version of that, then buy the Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit upgrade?
Or is there a simpler way?


A:Win7 HP 32bit - Win7 HP 64bit


You can buy the Upgrade key because you have a previous OS already (Windows 7 32-bit).

You don't need to do anything with Vista, however. You can do a clean install with the upgrade copy. Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

I am currently using Windows 7 Home Basic 32bit. I acquired Windows 7 Professional 64bit through MSDNAA and was wondering about how the OS change will go.

What I'm worried about are my files. I currently have about 200gb worth of data on my drive and I have no extra harddrives to make backups.

Because I'm going from 32bit to 64bit, I read that a clean install is required for this type of change. My question is, will my files be placed in a "windows.old" folder? Or will I be required to buy an external drive and transfer them all in order to keep them?

Are there any other things that I must keep in mind?

Usual causes: Disk corruption, insufficient physical memory, Device driver, Indexing, Resident antivirus, backup, defrag programs, Disk/Drive failing/failure

I would deal with these first
Memory-- download memtestx86 and run it for at least 5 passes.

System files- run a system file check
(type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow)
Let us know these results.

If that doesnt fix it we will get more aggressive

I have been lately getting BSODs. They happen usually when I open the computer for first time in a day. The computer can stay on for like 3 hours when I have got like 5 crashes. System specs are in my profile and dumps are attached on my post. I couldnt run the perfmon /report. My W7 is full retail and is the original OS on the system. The age of my computer is like 2yrs and the OS is the same age.

Edit:Because of the crashes I ran Memtest86+ on my old memory (same as my new but 4GB) and it gave about a million errors. I bought new memory and the computer still gets BSODs.

Edit2: Attached 1 dump file, going to attach more some time

Edit3: Added more dump files

A:Win7 64bit BSOD very often

No dmps in upload try this method

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

"4 memory modules when run with a Phenom II CPU are only supported at 800 MHz. Size does not matter. 4x512, 4x1GB, or 4x2GB ram modules will be run at a max speed of 800 MHz."

From both a performance and usability standpoint, will it be better to run only 4GB of RAM (2x2GB) at the the higher speed, or all 8GB of RAM (4x2GB) at the 800 speed?

A:Win7 64bit - Should I run 4GB @ 1333 or 8GB @ 800?

6 GB at 1333 Mhz

Clean install win7 home prem. CPU usage is at a constant 100% - 32bit runs smooth but I needed 64bit for all 8g of my ram. Everything I do is so slow, windows is unusable in this condition. All processes/services are normal - I've not did anything to it other than clean install. USB drive won't even reconize in 64bit when it does in 32. This happens from boot, it's slow as soon as windows starts to load. Im just idle on the desktop with task manager open with 100% CPU - all non Microsoft services turned off or on makes no difference.

Here is what I am running:

Hello and welcome everyone,
This is my first topic/post in this forum. I seek help how to remove PUP.BitCoinMiner. The virus keep restoring after being deleted by Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. My computer works a bit slower than usually, but its performance did not degrade much. I am more concern about security. If that helps, recently I used a doggy software, i.e. cracked version of an analytics software.
Please help.
Thanks in advance!

I'd like to know if it's possible to read the contents of a dll file on a Win7 64 bit installation?


A:How can I read a dll in Win7 64bit?

Yes, it is possible to read the contents of a dll file with the appropriate software. But why do you wish to do this? DLL's contain binary data that has no meaning except to an advanced programmer. To anyone else it would be a series of meaningless numbers.

i'm getting the error while trying to update to service pack1:

tried to download the SP1 and then install it, the same error.
as suggested by MS tried with my Kaspersky off with no luck, too.
Disconnected all cameras and printers - the same error...

could you please advice of any other solution to this problem.

A:Win7 64bit SP1 not installing

To be clear here, did you manually download the standalone, full Service Pack 1 and save it or was SP1 downloaded via Windows Update ?

Have you tried to run the System File Checker ? - How to Repair Windows 7 System Files with System File Checker

Have you run the System Update Readiness Tool (CheckSUR) for Windows 7 x64 yet ?
If yes, then please zip up and attach one of the logs that it created when it ran.
They are located at and named


If not, then please click the above link, download, and save it.
When the download completes close all open programs and web browsers.

With the system connected to the internet ( so that cab files can be downloaded ) run CheckSUR, and restart if prompted to.

CheckSUR may not be able to resolve this specific return code, 0x8007007E. The issue is most likely related to either Kaspersky or a missing/corrupted system file.

Let's see what one of the logs looks like first before someone recommends a Repair or Clean installation of Win 7.

Hi everyone I'm new to these forums and honestly just would like a problem/question answered.

I installed windows 7 home premium 64bit today and I had an extra 2gigs of ram laying around that I could not use with xp. I have 4gigs (2, 2gig sticks) already installed and I wanted install the other 2gigs (2, 1gig sticks). "2"1" "2"1" they
both are the same brand and type ocz ddr2 2.1v however the timings are 4-4-4 on the 1gig sticks and 4-4-5 on the 2gig sticks not sure if that matters

When I put the extra ram in win7 doesn't boot and stops right before the verifying DMI pool data

I have a gigabyte GA-ep35-ds3l motherboard

Relax the timing to JEDEC defaults, which should be 5-5-5-18 IIRC. Try standard 1.8V or even 1.85V and see if that helps.

whats with the OEM version? It's apparently for system builder who make then sell the pc.

So, will i be able to use it and keep the pc for personal use?

A:Building pc with win7 64bit OEM

Prior to win7, the system builder EULA used to say its meant for assemblers and manufacturers and not for the end user UNLESS the end user actually assembles his own rig. But in win7, that crucial part has been removed and now as per the EULA, the system builder license can only be used on a PC meant for resale. So technically it does appear you would be breachibg the EULA by installing it for personal use.

However, let me state at the risk of annoying some people that here again there is a gap between idea and practice. System builder copies are freely available at respected stores, if MS didnt want them to be there, they wouldnt be there. MS doesnt care whether you are an assembler or not provided you buy a genuine copy and install it on a single computer.

So been working on a friends Hp Laptop.

Had some kind of spyware that was hijacking the browser and intermittent BSOD's . She didnt have anything on it that had to be saved.. So I just used the recovery partition to reformat it. Well the issue was still happening.. Thought maybe i choose the light reformat or whatever. So i made 100% it was the full reformat . And alas its still happening.

Soooo popped in a Windows 7 Install DVD and well it starts up and gets a little ways and it BSOD's every time.

Ran the hp system diagnostics and its saying everything is fine. So im kind of clueless as to what to do next.

Is it even possible for the virus to be say hiding on one of the other 3 partitions the HD has? Theres the System Partition,The main windows one,recovery and hp tools.

So any suggestions would be helpfull

Hey Guys,

So I know this topic has been posted before....and I've been doing some searching so I've already tried a few things:

1. Shrew VPN (Did NOT work, gave me a BSOD when I installed.)

2. Virtual XP (Does not work with my Core 2 Duo processor, damn Intel for not making every processor they made recently support this feature.)

3. VMWare (would really want to avoid this option.)
Is there anyone out there who possibly needs to use Cisco VPN that has gotten it to WORK in Windows 7 64-bit?

Any opinions / advice / thoughts, you guys have, would be greatly appreciated.

Phenom II x4 940 3.0ghz.

The first step would be to see if your computer has the specs for 64 bit. Go to Microsoft.com and use the Windows Upgrade Advisor. If you do have the required specs, you should be able to install.

If you can install, wipe clean, do not give your key, when asked, just continue with the process. After installation use it for a while, if satisfied install programs. After you know that you are good, supply your key number. At this point make a system image and put it in a safe place. You will be set, now. If a problem ever occurs you can use the system image to get up and going again.

I Plugged My Normal setup (Logitech X-540 + Mic plugged in keyboard, and Headset plugged into the Logitech Control)

So, at first, people couldn't hear me on Ventrilo and stuff, so i had to play with all setting available on Win7 (Messy stuff).
And finally, put my mic on Boost +20 db.. So the quality isn't really there, and when i play css, it sounds pretty horrible.
And now new problem, I'm playing Heroes Of Newerth, and as soon as I get on the game, people on Vent can't hear me anymore, if I want to talk, i have to alt+tab out of the game, say what I have to say, then comeback on the game (which sucks).

I tried running both programs on administrator mode (which didn't worked)
I tried to play on windowed mode (which didn't worked either)

I Have Win7 64 bit
Onboard sound card
Razer Lycosa (which I plug my mic in)
Razer Deathadder (PTT button is set on Mouse4)
My headset sound is plugged in the Logitech X-540 Control thingie
And I have a Steelseries 5H V2

What is wrong with Win7 ?
It doesn't recognize my headset, it says not-plugged
and my webcam mic, is reacting better than my headset mic, even if it's at 0.5m, i clap my hand, and my webcam mic level, goes higher than my headset mic.. ?

A:Win7 + Ventrilo-64bit

Your post is a bit difficult to read.

Is the problem with the quality of the headset? Does it work on another computer? What if you connect it directly to the computer and not through the Logitech remote?

Look in the BIOS for something akin to "Memory Remapping".

The newest crash was caused by dot4.sys which I believe is a printer driver. I would remove it to test.
