Windows 7 64 bit PC will not run 32bit progs?

Specs: Windows 7, 8.0 Gbs
I use 32Bit programs to produce music. For over a year they operated smoothly without a problem on my Windows 7 OS. I recently tried to open some of these programs and they no longer work. I did nothing, they ask me to run them as the administrator then they say not compatible,,, ? Why after a year and a half will they not work, when I did nothing different or new? I get "Problem loading x64 driver, did I forget to reboot? Like , I have no need to reboot, I have not installed anything.
BeyondLife7@Yahoo.com Let me know if you have a fix, The program is MAGIX Music maker 11,,,

First, do not put your personal email address in an open post, you will get slammed with unwanted emails, please remove it using the edit feature.

Your program probably stopped working in Windows 7 64bit due to a recently received MS update. The program probably was never Windows 7 compatible in the first place, but worked anyway probably through a loop hole that MS recently noticed and for security reasons decided to close. You may still be able to run it if you run it under Windows XP (or possibly Vista) compatibility. Find the program icon (not the desktop shortcut), right click on it, select Properties and the compatibility tab and try running it as Vista or XP.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
