    Hi,
    i am currently running Windows Vista Home Premium 64 Bit version.
    After many compatibility problems including anti-virus software and my new ipod, i want to downgrade from this version of windows to a 32 bit version.
    Is this possible? and how do i go about doing this?

    Thanks,

    Sean

    Try contacting Microsoft.

    They have an option to get a 64bit liscence free with certain editions of Vista, maybe the opposite holds true as well.

    Microsoft want £46 + VAT to look at my email :O :mad:
    Has anyone else downgraded?
    Is it just as simple as buying a new OS and installing it?

    You're not "downgrading". You're reinstalling. Put the disk in, boot, and follow the prompts. Yes, as simple as buying and installing.
