    Thanks, I would have thought that what you say is true. Just thought unrealistically that repair support for both 32 bit and 64 bit might have been built in. If I had tried, for example, a refresh or a restore, would I have been warned/denied--or would my system have been allowed to be trashed?

    Nar, you would most likely have gotten the usual "this (64-bit) does not apply to a 32-bit system" type failure message when it checked your system before actually running when you tried to use it.
