So I finally got Win7 Home Premium 64-bit. Cool. Install goes fine. But now I have a couple of issues. 1) File Permissions. Before this, I had XP and my account had a password. I kept a few system folders on another hard drive. These include the "Documents and Settings" folder, the "My Documents" folder and a folder that I kept some programs in. To install Win7 I wiped my C drive and installed it there. But now, all my files on my D drive are not accessible due to security restrictions. I've tried various things, and I've followed what the dialogs say, but when I try to change ownership of a huge folder, I always hit some random file that I'm not able to change. My only options are to cancel or try again. My question is how can I completely erase existing ownerships and permissions and such? I've already done it for some of the files I need, but everything isn't 100% working yet. 2) Sound. My mic is very low. No hardware changes. Plugged in exactly the same way. The 20db boost didn't work well in XP. (extremely distorted) Sound works great, just the mic is extremely low. My sound card is an Chaintech AV-710, which is based on VIA's Envy24 HT-S chip. Win7 automatically suggested a driver (5.12) and I'm using it now, and it's the one causing problems. I tried using a newer driver, but I found some discrepancies. VIA's official site only offers up to 5.40a. But on a forum, I found version 5.40f. I tried 5.40f and then my sound was messed up. Sounded like my speaker on my phone and only the right one worked. I didn't bother testing the mic because of those issues. So now what? I don't feel like trying all the possibilities so what do you all suggest? 3) A simple question. Like XP x64, Win7 has two program files folders, Program Files and Program Files (x86). I know the former is for 64 bit programs and the other is for 32bit programs. But is there any difference from the eyes of the OS? In other words, if I put a 32bit program in Program Files, it'll still work and everything. So Windows doesn't treat one folder different than the other? Kinda noobish, but just asking.
