Have you tried to reinstall your programs? I had a similar problem with a system in the shop. I had to reinstall several programs and it solved the problem.

How to check weather computer will support 64 bit


Open the "System Properties" window

If your Start menu is configured for Classic Start menu, right-click the My Computer icon on your desktop, and click Properties.

If your Start menu is the Windows default Start menu, click the Start button, then right-click the My Computer icon in your Start menu, and click Properties.

Click the Advanced tab.

Click Environment Variables.

In the "System variables" list at the bottom of the Environment Variables window, look for a variable called "PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE". If your PC has a 32-bit processor, this variable will have a value of "x86". If it has a 64-bit processor this variable will have a value of "x64".

I have a problem making a shortcut on my desktop for some of programs. They come up but when I click them, nothing happens.


How are you creating the shortcut? If you right click on your desktop and click on New -> Shortcut, then tell it where the actual program is located, it should work everytime. A simpler solution is to find the program in your start menu and simply right click and drag it onto the desktop then choose to create a shortcut here.
