    The Internet Explorer shortcut in the Quick
    Launch toolbar and in the Start menu of Vista x64 will run the 32-bit version of Internet Explorer by default. Why run the 32-bit version if IE on
    the 64-bit version of Vista?

    There are actually two shortcuts for Internet Explorer in the "All Programs" menu. Why two and what's the
    difference?

    Here's the title of each and the exe's they run:

    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.

    How do I make the Quick Launch shortcut
    run the 64-bit version of
    IE?



    1. Right-Click the Shortcut

    2. Click "Properties"

    3. On the Shortcut tab, replace the content of the "Target" textbox with the
      target from the "Internet Explorer (64-bit)" shortcut
      in the "All Programs" menu.

    4. Happy surfing via IE 64-bit

    Are there any gotchas to running the
    64-bit version of IE?


    Actually there is one that I know of. At the time I'm posting this there is
    no 64-bit version of Flash Player. So, if you need
    to view a website that uses Flash, then you'll need to use
    the 32-bit version IE; at least for now. I'm sure
    Adobe will release a 64-bit version of Flash Player by the end of
    January when Vista ships to consumers. But then again, maybe not since Vista x64 runs 32-bit IE by
    default.

I have problem with my youtube, videos are not playing.. pls help!


Make sure that your flash player is installed. You can go to http://www.adobe.com/ and click on adobe flash player.

If you're using a 64 bit browser, make sure that you use the 32 bit internet explorer instead of the 64 bit internet explorer (If you click on start > all programs, you will see 2 internet explorers, a 32 bit and a 64 bit).

Let me know if this helps :)

Is your system running 64-bit or 32-bit? To find this out, press "start", right click on "computer", then click "properties". There it will specify your "system type" (64-bit or 32-bit). There is no Flash Player for 64-bit Web Browswers available yet. If your computer is running 64-bit, you should try using the 32-bit Internet Explorer (can be found in your list of programs in the start menu).

Windows 7 operating systems is an improved system with networing improvement compartibilities.

Microsoft internet explorer is incompartible with Windows 7 operating system. e.g. The compartibilty is with the computer operating system, windoms 2000, mellannium, xp and vista operating systems should display internet explorer. Windows 7 32-bit a lower versions design or 64-bit an remodified version are incompartible to Internet explorer

Where can I take my computer to get Flash player installed for Windows 7 ? I have tried and had a computer man try and I still cannot see videos.


I don't think you need to take it anywhere as the problem is due to Adobe not releasing a 64-bit version of Flash so in the mean time you'll have to use the 32-bit version of Flash with the 32-bit version Internet Explorer that comes pre-loaded with the 64-bit version of Windows 7. Adobe has said that a Flash plugin for 64-bit browsers will be available in the next major version after 10.1 (presumably 11). Hope that makes sense but shout if you need further clarification.

I play a game on facebook, and every time I go into the game, a screen says my plugin has crashed. What do I do to fix it?


Depend on your OS. If is Windows IE, some issues has found on this.

Try this :
our version of Windows is either a 32-bit operating system or a 64-bit operating system. A 64-bit operating system can run both 32-bit applications and 64-bit applications.Your browser, such as Internet Explorer, is either a 32-bit application or a 64-bit application. Flash Player works only with a browser that is a 32-bit application. On a 32-bit operating system, your browser is always a 32-bit application. However, on a 64-bit operating system, your browser is either a 32-bit application or a 64-bit application. Make sure you are using a 32-bit browser by following these instructions:

Windows with Internet Explorer
To make sure you are using a 32-bit version of Internet Explorer, follow these steps:
  1. In Internet Explorer's Help menu, select Help > About Internet Explorer. (In some versions of Internet Explorer, select the question mark in the upper right corner to select About Internet Explorer).

    ieversion2.gif
  2. If you do not see the words "64-bit Edition" next to the version number, you are running a 32-bit version of Internet Explorer. Continue to Determine the Flash Player version you installed, if any.
  3. If you do see the words "64-bit Edition", go to Flash Player on 64-bit operating systems (TechNote 6b3af6c9) to continue troubleshooting your Flash Player installation.
Windows with other browsers, such as Firefox, Google Chrome, or Opera
No official 64-bit version of these browsers is currently available on 64-bit Windows operating systems. Therefore, unless you are using a test version of a browser (not typical), your browser is a 32-bit application, and therefore, works with Flash Player. Continue to Determine the Flash Player version you installed, if any.

2. Determine the Flash Player version you installed, if any

Before you troubleshoot Flash Player installation, determine the version of Flash Player you have installed, if any. You can see if it is working and whether it is the latest version available for your operating system. Follow these steps:
  1. Go to http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about. If you have already successfully installed Flash Player, the page displays the Adobe Flash Player version as shown in the following image:
    flasht23.jpg
    Note: The version number in this example might be different than the version you have installed.

    If you have not successfully installed Flash Player, you will not see the image.
  1. The same page http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about has a table that shows the latest Flash Player version available for your operating system (for example, Windows or Macintosh) and your browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Firefox). If the version information shown in step 1 does not match the latest version shown in the table, upgrade to the latest version. To upgrade, continue to Uninstall previous versions of Flash Player.
Note:Internet Explorer uses a different Flash Player than other browsers such as Firefox or Google Chrome. Therefore, if you sometimes use Internet Explorer and sometimes use another browser, you might have installed a different version of Flash Player for Internet Explorer than for other browsers.
red-line-22.png
3. Uninstall previous versions of Flash Player

Before you install Flash Player for any Windows browser, uninstall all previous Flash Player versions and restart your computer. Follow these steps:
  1. Uninstall all previous Flash Player versions and restart your computer. For Flash Player uninstall instructions, see Uninstall Flash Player (TechNote tn_14157).
  2. Restart your computer after uninstalling.
  3. If you are using Internet Explorer, continue to Verify Internet Explorer security and ActiveX settings. Otherwise, continue to Download and install Adobe Flash Player.

red-line-23.png
4. Verify Internet Explorer security and ActiveX settings (skip for other browsers)

Make sure that Internet Explorer security default level is set to Medium. This level allows viewing ActiveX controls, such as Flash Player. To set browser security to Medium, perform the following steps:
  1. Open Internet Explorer.
  2. Choose Tools > Internet Options.
  3. Select the Security tab.
  4. Select Trusted Sites zone.
  5. Select the Default Level button. (If the Default Level button is dimmed, continue to the next step).
  6. Move the slider until the security level is Medium.
  7. Select Apply.
  8. Select the Internet zone.
  9. Repeat steps 5 - 7. When done, select OK.

Farmville is not working in IE8 and I have updated Flash player, still is not working. Please help


If you are running on a 64-bit system, there is not yet a compatible flash player for ie8. There is a 64-bit ie8 available, however Farmville tends to make the browser crash. If you'd like to try that browser, it's available here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=3aeda9db-b318-408a-860b-bc37bd6ab70c&displaylang=en

If you are running the 32-bit windows, or you are unsure which version you have, I would recommend using Firefox. It's a faster browser, fewer crashes and your Farmville flash will work no problem. Firefox can be downloaded here:

Hope that helps. :)

32 bit IE won't connect to internet in Vista 64 bit.


32 bit programs, last I checked, won't work in a 64 bit operating system, just as 64 bit won't work in 32 bit operating systems.

If 32 bit programs will work in a 64 bit OS, they probably won't work properly.

IE 32-bit browser need to run on my 64-bit browser


Hi buddy323,

You will find the 32 bit browser on your Vista installation disk. Or your restore CD from Dell.

If you can't find it there, you can download it HERE. Or may want to go for the IE version 8.

Good Luck and don't forget to leave a rating.

Thanks Mark

Adobe flash player quit working


This problem is most likely related to a Windows Vista permissions issue. Because Vista has security features to prevent scumbag spammers and spyware from infesting your computer, programs will not automatically install themselves. I have had success by logging into Vista as an administrator, then installing whatever programs I wanted, then logging back in under my normal usage account. Sometimes simply being in the administrator account is not enough, but I hope this gets you in the right direction.
