Re: Windows 7 speed vs XP

Chris,

Just to clarify, you didn't change your Operating System to a 32-bit, just 
that you unloaded the 64-bit version of JAWS and installed the 32-bit 
version...correct?

Hi.
Indeed I used 64 bit for a few months. Yes, I had major problems with
JAWS and in fact other screen readers. Whenever I used Windows Explorer
at some random point it would stop responding and it had to close. It
caused my screen reader to lock up and all that. As it was Windows
Explorer I thought the problem was so serious that this is the reason I
went back to 32 bit. I do not know if later versions of screen readers
has this fixed. So sorry about that.
Hope you have better luck with a 64 bit OS than me.
