Really impressed from your response guys..!! okay I am going to follow your suggestions specially "Having two OS 32 bit and 64 bit " in two separate drivers.. But tell me one thing doing this will have any side effect on the performance of the system. :)

No, it's like having two separate computers with the same hardware inside your computer. Every time you restart or turn it on, you pick which system you want to load.

Only performance issue would be related to the extra hard drive space taken up by the second installation. You only run one OS at a time, so it gets full CPU and RAM.

All you guys could simply run a virtual machine you know. COnsidering the gmes to play, the resource overhead would be minimal.

I've had great success running in fullscreen virtual machines, however there's always some tick that prevents it from being perfect. In the case of Windows' Virtual Machine 2008 (the one with fullscreen) is that occasionally an arrow key remains pressed after releasing and you have to repress it to stop the scroll. Minimal issue, you would think, but it happens once every five minutes or so, and scrolling right past the battle is never a fun experience.

Aside that- visuals were perfect, audio was clear, and it even considered Hamachi its network card (instant virtual LAN capabilities).

If you noticed it why didn't you ban on the spot? Clearly a paid east indian advertiser and not just a bot.

I'd bet money this is the same person or going to do the same thing.

I guess since I usually don't do the bans (unless it's a 100% clear bot) and it was ridiculously obvious that others will spot it, I expected too much someone else to warn/ban/whatever or that Lavachu was somehow "okay" with it.

EDIT : I edited out his signature and ad links. I didn't ban him since I tend to consider it Lavachu's call.
