Re: [WIN7] Moving from 32 to 64bit??

You still have a better protected kernal in the 64 bit version. There may be instances where a particular piece of malware doesn't do the damage on one system it would do on another. I don't sleep any better with a 64 system then I would with a 32 bit system. You are right. The majority of the really bad stuff doesn't care and does it damage regardless of what version of Windows you happen to be running. There are some new protections that Microsoft and the hardware vendors have gotten together on in Windows 8, that should help some with systems that fully support the technology.
