I would like to know how I would check if I.E.8 and Firefox 3.6.3. are 64 bit on my computer. Will both 32 and 62 bit work on W7 Home Premium 64 bit.

In 64-bit Windows you should have two IE versions, 32-bit and 64-bit...

Internet Explorer
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

Internet Explorer (64-bit)
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

The first one runs IE from the "Program Files (x86)" folder, this is the 32-bit version. The second one is the 64-bit version.

Firefox doesn't have 64-bit version, yet.
It may come with FF 4.0 version, but we'll see, if it'll happen.

Thanks Broni for the information. I checked and I'm running 32 for what ever reason. When I use I.E. 8 which is not ofter I get a pop up from windows to update to I.E. 8. Could that be the 64 bit version it's asking to update to?

Hmmm...I'm not sure, if I understand.
In Win 7 both IE should be ver 8.
Open both IE, click Help>About IE and see what versions they're.

Did your computer come with Win 7, or was it an upgrade?

Clean install with W7-64 OEM. I found both versions I.E. 8, 32 and 64. I was using 32 just changed to 64. I let you know if the pop up stops. I don't know how I was on 32 I.E.8.

For what ever reason the pop ups are still there. Not much of a problem. I think the next time it pops up I will just tic okay and see what happens. Can you think of reason doing this can hurt.

Not really, maybe it's just some IE update, which should be installed.

The only reason it's a concern to me is that I go to a training sit that I must have (ssl). I don't want to loose the ability to use them. It's hard to believe; they use I.E.6. I know that hard to believe but it's true. The best I can figure, lazzzzzzzy IT's.

I don't know if it has changed or not, but I have 64 bit Vista. I bought it right after SP1 came out. I put the 64 bit version of IE on it. Not even Microsofts own website would allow it. I took it off and haven't used it since. Of course I use firefox EXCEPT when I have to go to MS update.........

Well I got the pop again so I set the popup blocker to on and it hasn't come back. I have to remember to turn it back off when going to my training site or it won't work. What is strange is the I.E.8 pop up was the only one I ever got with popup blocker off. Must be my security. I use the built in firewall.

So the 64 bit IE8 works now Bear? I never tried it after the 64 bit IE7 didn't work.

"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"
This is what I'm using now and it seems to work as good I.E.8 can.
