    As I said before, I think the effort to stay with IE, when you have problems, is not worth it. I have been there and I still keep IE because in some circumstances, it is still the browser to use, but I have been using Chrome as my default browser for a while now. I don't really like Chrome that much, but it's just a browser.

    ruirib,
    You're so right. I'm just one of the ol' guys that like thinks to work correctly. I sure would like to find the reason that that one file opens instead of IE64.
    I'm looking at Safari Browser - have it on my iPad2 and it works pretty well and will accept boomarks & cookies from IE.
    Thanks for your response.

    Tom,

    Safari is one of the buggiest browsers that you can get, on Windows. If I were you, I would go with Chrome or Firefox.

    OK - thanks for the heads up ruirib -
    I've "heard" that Chrome "watches/records" your every move....have you heard this?
    Thanks, Tom

    You might give this a try. Uninstall both IE9 64bit and 32bit so you revert back to IE8. Then download ONLY the 64bit IE9.
    The reason is if you download the 64bit IE9, it also automatically installs the IE9 32 bit version too. It comes (whether you want it or not) when you download the 64 bit version. So maybe it already see's the 32bit IE9 and that causes the issue?

    Hello Ochie,
    I tried that and the 32 bit IE9 would open but NOT the 64bit - same behavior as IE8 now.
    Thanks so much for your interest and thoughts.
    Have a blessed one.

    Google is not on my list of good doers, but I don't really worry much about where I browse. I don't think it is as bad as recording wherever you go.

    Part of the problems with IE9 64-bit is that it cannot be set as the default browser. Therefore , when you click on a link in an e-mail or document, the 32-bit iteration will open as it is the default.

    Chrome's "snooping" can be controlled by going into Google, signing in, and turning off your Google History. (If you do not have a Google Account, I think you can still turn off your Google History.) Then install into Chrome the DoNotTrack Plus Extension (by Abine). It blocks much, but not all, of Google's tracking behaviors. Between the Google History and DoNotTrack Plus, I find very little evidence of Google "snooping" on my Chrome use (or my Google searches, for that matter).

    Question Why x64?

    Just out of curiosity, why do you want to use the x64 version?

    If there's not a strong upside to doing so, perhaps it's not worth the effort. For instance, MS makes an x64 version of Office, but then says publicly that they recommend using the 32-bit version, even on a Win x64 system. Why? Apparently it's hard to write solid x64 software, and not everything works correctly in the x64 version. I wonder if IE has the same (or similar) problems?

    I've got 64 IE working again today and is doing fine. For me, IE 64 is "much faster" than IE 32.

    It would be interesting to know how you were able to get working again.
