Does AVG work w/ Vista 64 bit? Did I buy the wrong edition?

by Bulletabn / September 4, 2008 3:31 AM PDT

Hi, I just got a brand new computer with windows vista 64 bit edition. I got the fastest, smartest, spooiest computer I could afford and it's got so many bells and wistles! It's also got windows vista 64 bit. I got it because I could pile in more ram, run more programs at once, etc, etc. Now, I have no idea what I can really do with it and what I can't. I HAVE found out that some programs that I used to use on my 32 bit edition don't work anymore on my new caddilac of a laptop. Now I'm starting to wonder if I made a mistake. Could someone MUCH smarter than me please tell me I didn't just buy a very expensive internet browsing word processor? Also, does AVG Free work with 64 bit?

Respectfully, Ron Underwood

Thanks for your help. I accessed the webpage you provided and found the info I needed. I guess I should have looked harder for the answer myself. But, I do appreciate your assistance.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
