Getting my PC Build right with Adobe 64Bit IFilter

I’ve had my Dell Optiplex running Vista 64Bit for over a month now, but I’m still installing bits and bobs and getting the configuration right.

Tonight was the install of the 64 Bit pdf IFilter from Adobe so that search will look inside the pdfs I have already transferred across to my new PC. Although recent releases of Adobe Reader now include this piece of software that allows search to read the text of a pdf, they only include the 32 bit IFilter which will not work with Vista 64 Bit.
