RE: Windows 7 speed vs XP

I'm using Windows7 64 bit and love it. I'm using the new Beta of JAWS 12 and
did great with JAWS eleven.

I really like it myself.

There was one problem I had though. I put Office seven standard 32 bit on
my computer and Outlook shut down the wrong way.

When I finally got a copy of Office 7 professional 64 bit, I have had no
problems. It works great.

Hello Chris, many thanks for your answer. I will bear this in mind when ever

I decide to get a new computer in the future. If I remember rightly although

this was sometime ago so I don't know where it stands now that you got a 64 
bit OS not sure which one though but you changed back to 32 bit because Jaws

was having issues. If you can remember what were the problems at the time 
and do you know if they are fixed?
Thanks
Daniel
