    Haveing a lot of trouble after I deleted a Free AVG Anti-Virus,
    Program, and then tried to install a purchased Bitdefender program...

    The main question is,,, do I have a 64 Bit operating system,(Vista Home Premium) ,
    and should I up-grade to Windows 8 or keep Vista ???

    Problem, and How It Started:
    I kept getting this flag,,, or Error Message,,, after I installed Bitdefender...



    Now either Bitdefender,, or I have corrupted the system...

    I think the Vista system needs to be re-installed, maybe a
    complete clean installation.... There was no support from Bitdefender,,,
    none,,, zero,,,zip....

    Before the removal of AVG Free Anit-Virus,,, I use it for 3
    years, not one virus, not one problem with that system or
    program... The system, both the Vista OP system, and
    the Computer,,, worked just great for three years... Not
    one problem,,, and I mean,,, not one...

    Either "Bitdefender",,, my removal program,,, or I,,,
    screwed up the computer... Now I can't get either
    Bitdefender or AVG to load, so no anti virus now...
    I have un-installed, and re-loaded the programs ten
    different times...

    I been working on it for a couple of days... Now I might
    have the system completely FUBAR...

    The computer is still is working... and does almost all I want..
    .But, it's missing files, service pak's, dll files, exe file,,, ect, ect...

    I have the following Computer, and Operating System...

    Microsoft® Windows Vista™ Home Premium...

    I am sure if this is a 64 Bit system, is that correct...
    My guess is,,, it's a 64 Bit System, but it must be running some
    32 Bit programs ?????? INFO Below:

    The computer is working fine right now, and I have a ton of
    Info on the computer, but I can't get some programs
    to work, or load... I want to move all the INFO to an
    "External Hard-Drive"... Then do a clean install...

    I think I want to make a "clean" install of Vista, but I don't
    think I ever got the "Install Disk's" or I have lost them... So
    I will buy a new "Operating System" on E-Bay,,, a new
    system, in an un-opened box...

    I think this is a 64 Bit version of Vista that I have, and it's
    running on a this computer,,, info below:

    Dell Inspiron 545
    Processor: Intel ® Core ™ 2 Quad
    CPU Q8200 @ 2.33 GHz 2.33 GHz
    Menory (RAM) 8.00 GB
    System Type 64-Bit Operating System

    OS Name---Microsoft Window Vista Home Premium
    Version---6.0.6002 Serivice Pack 3 Build 6002

    Motherboard: Dell Inc. | | 0N826N
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU
    Q8200 @ 2.33GHz | Socket 775 | 2331/333mhz

    I think I can get a new Windows 8 System cheaper
    than, the Vista system... I Think,,,

    Any Ideas on repairs, or a "Clean Install of either
    Vista or Windows *8...

    Aloha, and a big "Malhalo" for your time and
