    Windows 7 32-bit works but 64-bit Crashes/Freezes

    For over 2 years we have been using Windows 7 Pro 32-bit and all has been honky-dory. However, when trying to use the 64-bit edition it hasn't been great. Whatever workstation we use to rebuild to 64-bit a user logs in to find that the system freezes frequently and browsers such as IE & Chrome will say not responding, therefore you have to forcibly close it. Sometimes logging on takes an absolute age. I am using the relevant drivers and everything is all up to date in terms of updates.

    Rebuild the workstation back to 32-bit and everything works beautifully well.

    Has anyone come across anything like it? Any solutions?

    Its probably nit 64-bit specific. We converted to 64-bit ages ago and really there was no change in the way anything worked. Maybe its just a dodgy image?

    I'm using the Windows 7 Pro SP1 64-bit ISO that I downloaded from the MS VLSC site. I am re-downloading it again and will be re-importing it into MDT for another try. If this happens again, then I don't know what else to do. I am currently exploring hotfix information to see if I can install any of the hotfixes available to cure the problem.

    How does it behave on different hardware?

    I've tried 3 different types of hardware (2 x HP and 1 x RM) that all have differing processors (Intel i3, Intel Core2Duo, Intel i7) and all exhibited the same symptoms and problems.

    I reset profiles so that a user logs in with a fresh profile, but the problem continued to persist.

    Have you tried doing it without MDT? Could it be an app that isn't playing nicely with x64?

    I've reinstalled the OS from the DVD and the problem still persists when connected onto the domain. When logging in as the local administrator everything appears to be fine. The problem seems to only present itself when a domain account is used to login with.
