Going 64 bit is really benefitial for certain types of software,
for example file compression software, antiviruses etc that use
lots of memory and CPU cycles. I will get around to nuking 64 bit
reader, but I wish it had worked especially since Quentin on this
list earlier had said he had no issues.

I can say, with absolute certainty, that at one point
(probably in the past) Microsoft explicitly instructed to use the
32-bit version of Office unless you needed something that could
not be had without the 64-bit.
But, my statement is about what we techs "on the ground"
routinely advise, particularly after an issue has reared its ugly
head with a 64-bit version of anything. For lots of stuff I still
just install the 32-bit because it's the "most focused upon" in
the development cycles at the moment. That's definitely going to
change, and I wish it had changed ages ago, but there has always
been a need to keep the 32-bit stuff "in tip top shape" since it
can run under a 32-bit and 64-bit version of Windows.
There's lots of 64-bit software, I'd say most of it, that
you won't have a single, solitary problem with. But if you are,
or suspect you might based upon reports such as those made in this
topic, and a 32-bit version exists, then nuke the 64-bit install
and then install the 32-bit version.
