Well it should do to some extent, seeing as the Athlon64s were the first CPUs to support 64-bit operating systems. You'd be better off listing what software you're trying to run and what issues you're facing with running the programs under whatever operating system you're using.

If you're trying to run more modern software on a ~10yr old CPU, then maybe that's the problem and not the CPU istself.

Oh yeah, also - never ever a very good idea to post up your personal email address on a public forum - this place gets scraped and trawled all the time by bad email harvesters and spambots .. I'd remove it if I were you.

I'm not sure what you mean by "64+ programs".  Enabling SSE/SSE2 is usually a compiler option set when the software is built.  There's not much you can do to change that after the fact, unless you're building something yourself.

..or any other Windows 32bit Operating system. Thus x64 programs will not install. All A64 Athlons are 64bit capable.
