Hey guys, I just recently built a new rig from scratch. I opted to use an AMD Athlon 64 3000+ so I went ahead and bought Windows x64 Professional to reap full benifits of having a 64bit processor.
Now Im regretting my decision. Im having tons of problems.
-I cant install IE 6 SP1 (does not install on 64bit systems)
-I keep getting error messages while trying to instal Java apps, without Java I cant run Limewire.
-Streaming video embedded in webpages will not stream, it gives me a "Windows Media Player cannot play the file. If the file is located on the Internet, connect to the Internet. If the file is located a removable storage card, insert the storage card." error message when I click on Error Details.
-I cant get through to the Microsoft website to download SP1 and SP2. It gets to the point where it says "Checking if your computer has the latest version of Windows updating software for use with the website"....then it gives me this.
"The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view. The options provided below might help you solve the problem.

How am I supposed to get the service packs if Microsofts website keeps giving me that **** message.. if I order the CD it takes 4-6 WEEEEEKS!
Im sure there are other things Im forgetting right now but thats just a few of the LIMITED things I can do on this **** 64bit OS.
