Okay, my speakers are on full volume (though I don't have any speakers), and I hear no sound from my headphones. =( It might just be so that by the time I find the leisure to try xp-64 Microsoft will stop supporting it. I want to figure out how stuff works on here first, and it's taking a while, and I have to do some work in the meantime. It's a pain in the ass of course. Windows Defender is the biggest piece of crap in Microsoft history.
