Default Color Profiles and Pantone Colorvision Spyder

I have an old Pantone Colorvision Spyder that comes with PhotoCAL software. The Spyder includes sensors for LCD screens.

I've been reading mixed review about how well this works on Windows 7 64. Some say update the software (I cannot find the update link) and it works well, while others say updating does not good. I think I might have even read a message (not sure) that the old software can be use.

Any of you have experience with this?

Also, in Windows there are some prermade profiles. Even though I've dealt with profiles before, I'm getting very confused in there. What I'd like to do before trying to device is to load an existing profile that might work well, but the term "associate" and the interface confuse me. Any easy tips?
