I received my new Acer Win7 64bits laptop from Amazon this Tuesday and installed all files plus updated to the latest Windpws 7 updates as required! But then I discovered that my McAphee Internet Security plus other Applications, such as Windows Media Player, would not work or just crashed. Despite I spent the whole day trying to resolve this but had gone no where, and being a new laptop just received I tended to blame the my new laptop instead. I was preparing to send the request to Amazon for a "Return" because there is no facility in my laptop for re-installing the OS. But suddenly I awared that my laptop had just been silently updated again (just set to automatic updates) through my wireless internet. So as a last attempt, I rebooted my laptop and tried again, thinking of just in case it was due to my recent Windows 7 64-bit updates created this problem! Indeed it was, because my new Acer Win7 64bits laptop is now working normally as expected and there is NO more crashes or Applications not working!!
I posted this so that for someone in my similar position should be aware this before blaming your NEW PCs/Laptops!!
