Which installer should I use?

My computer is an HP Compaq Presario with an AMD Athlon 64 processor 3500+ 2.19 GHz, 960 MB of Ram. You have a 32 bit ver and a 64 bit ver for download, and I’m wondering which one I should use. Thanks in advance!

You need the version that matches your OS.
The hardware is irrelevant.
You can run 32bit OS on 64bit hardware.
So what OS do you have XP \ Vista 32bit or XP \ Vista 64bit ?

Answer that and you have your answer.


Right click My Computer > Properties.
If its 64 bit it should say there.

I’ll just double check that now.

This is more positive

  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. Type sysdm.cpl, and then click OK.
  3. Click the General tab. The operating system appears as follows:
    * For a 64-bit version operating system: Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition Version < Year> appears under System.
    * For a 32-bit version operating system: Microsoft Windows XP Professional Version appears under System.
    Note is a placeholder for a year.

Ha Ha Ha, I kill me.

Part 2 was just a longer path to the same place.

Check :-TU

I have the exact same thing\problem.
This is a little better than the last release but still not fully baked.
Honestly I wouldn’t play with this.
Yea sure it is OK for some people, but if they can’t make a help button
simply open a help file in XP, it should still be a Beta or RC.

I’m not a noob and I don’t mean to sound whiny, I don’t even need
this app.
I just hate seeing people hose their systems, thinking it is a stable safe app
when it’s not quite there yet.


Not trying to argue with you on the subject that they should make sure everything is tip top before releaseing to the public… but i ask you… what does stable mean? what does safe mean?


It’s just in the way it comes across.

Woo Hoo boys here it is.
The greatest thing since sliced bread, killer of all cleaners and multi-tools.
Then obviously lots of people who hear about it want to try it.
I’m talking for “Joe User” they read a couple of posts with all the congrats
and back slapping. Then promptly wipe out parts of their system.

Or find that this or that module crashes, buttons don’t work etc.
This gets the app and the company an undeserved bad rep.
If I were a dev I would keep a products label as beta or RC at least untill
the simple things work, reliably for experienced users on the most common OS.

It’s not like we aren’t here in the forum pointing these things out.
At least with an RC label, when a neophyte takes their machine for a wreck
you have your rep covered.
Like I said I’m not one of those gimme gimme whiners.
I personally could care less if they developed a cleaner.
But I like the company’s philosophy and I’m willing to play with the new toys
at my own risk and report flaws. And it’s better to warn of the noobs than have
them ranting all over the net about what a POS the apps from here are.

I could go on cause I’m like that but I’m sure you get my drift.

Later my friend

I thought X86 always meant 32 bit, but I may be wrong.


I’m not sure whether to thank MS for the confusion, or point out a flaw with CSC.

Yes x86 AFIK is 32bit.
Read the thread carefully
He has a 64bit processor.
He has a 64bit OS.
Somewhere he pulled out x86.
CSC for 64 wouldn’t install.

Where is the smiley for head spinning!

Hey LA, Yep your correct :slight_smile:
