Can't open 32bit IE9

Q: Can't open 32bit IE9

Hi. I have windows 7 64 bit installed. There are 2 IE9's in the start menu listed Internet Explorer and Internet Explorer (64bit). Either one I choose opens the 64bit version. I i go to program files(x86)/internet explorer and open it from there it works. So I pin it to the taskbar, click on it and it once again opens the 64 bit version.
Can anyone help?

Preferred Solution: Can't open 32bit IE9

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Can't open 32bit IE9

Open start menu, right click on IE (the non x64 one), click on properties. What is the path on the shortcut tab? It should be:

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

Where C:\ is your OS drive

Also confirm Start in path is:

%HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%

I can not open some programs in windows 7. This is a brand new Dell Laptop. I install all of these programs 4 days ago and they worked fine. Now when I try and open these same programs. I get the motion circular object as if the program is opening, however the programe never starts. If you click on the program again, each instance will appear in the task manager, but the program will not open. I have ran the compatiblity check on these apps. Open for suggestions.

Thanks

NEVER MIND! Problem Solved. A program that we run was not comptiable with windows 7 was the cause of this.

Okay just got a new PC with Win Bit recently When I set the UAC to its default setting - quot Notify me only when programs try to make changes to my computer quot programs in my Startup list such as my Firewall ZoneAlarm and antivirus Avira don't - Many programs 64 won't 7, open Bit 32Bit Windows appear in the system tray - although there's a process running for them in the Many 32Bit programs won't open - Windows 7, 64 Bit task manager This isn't normal behaviour they should show up in the system tray as Many 32Bit programs won't open - Windows 7, 64 Bit well Additionally with UAC set like that windows asks EVERY time when I try to open an application such as Windows Live Messenger which also won't run at startup Although at least I can open it this way If I switch UAC off by moving the slider to the lowest setting my antivirus and firewall sometimes appear in the system tray But trying to launch for example Windows Live Messenger does nothing There's no message to say it hasn't worked or I need to OK it it just appears to do nothing When I look at the task manager again there's a Process running for it but no Application What's going on The same thing will happen with Bit IE doesn't seem to run but there's a Process there and nothing under Applications but Bit IE launches fine I've tried setting all these programs to Run as Administrator every time and changing the Compatibility settings where possible but this made no difference If it helps most games seem to launch fine without any popup no matter what I do Could anyone suggest a way of either getting Windows to remember what I picked for the UAC popups so I only see them once per program or help me understand why switching UAC off makes many programs not work at all You can be as technical as you like about it I'll follow okay Or if there's an alternative such as running EVERYTHING under the administrator account all the time I'd be interested to hear it The user account I'm doing this under has administrator access though Thanks very much for any help you can offer

A:Many 32Bit programs won't open - Windows 7, 64 Bit

As for programs appearing in the tray, go to the right click menu of the Taskbar>Properties>Notification Area Customize and then set programs according to your preference as to how they are displayed. For the remainder of your question, I'll defer to someone else, because I always disable the UAC.

A:IE8 32Bit crashes everytime I open it on Win7 64Bit OS

This is just like uninstalling, so you come back with a new IE. In search type turn windows off windows. Then click on turn windows on and off. Then turn if off. Warning, you cannot surf the net at all until you turn it back on

After you turn it off ..Boot up again and turn it back on.

Wishing you the best.

So, as the title says, I had Win7 - 32bit first...
I decided to dualboot it with 64, so I could have a clean partition (64bit) and still have all my programs of my 32bit...

When I boot, the 32bit gets a BSOD, and even windows startup repair can't repair it... But 64bit does launch great!

My specs;

Processor 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Quad-processor Q9000
Memory 4 GB DDR3
HD 320 GB @ 7200 rpm
Graphic card; nVidia GeForce 9600M GT 1gb etcetcetc

TY for your help

Can you boot into Safe Mode? Press F8 at startup to access the menu. If so, remove Daemon Tools or whatever other virtual drive software that you have installed.

OS: Win 7 64bit.

Is it generally not a problem to choose to install a piece of 32bit software outside the win 7 default program folder for 32bit software?
Or is 32bit software only supposed to be running flawlessly, if installed in that
default 32bit folder?
Thanks.

Go ahead and install the program wherever you want. The different folders make no difference. It's just to help you keep track of which programs are 32-bit and which are 64-bit.

Hi guys, noob here. I just got a new computer with Win7 Home Premium 64-bit, and previously was using XP. In XP I was able to add Photoshop to the "Open with" menu upon right-clicking any .jpg file, but I'm having trouble doing this in Win7. It will only allow me to add the 64bit version, which is not working on my system for some reason (the 32bit version works fine.)

Is there a way to get the 32 bit version to add to the menu? Right now, even if I select the Photoshop 32bit version, it still adds the 64bit version to the menu for some reason.

A:How to add Photoshop 32bit to "Open With" in 64bit OS?

Hi there,

You may have already done this, but I can't quite tell from your description.

1. Right-click on a file of the type for which you want to set Photoshop as the default.
2. Go to "Open with...", click "Choose default program...", and then click "Browse."
3. Go to C:\Program Files (x86) and follow the folder path to reach Photoshop.
4. Select the Photoshop executable (.exe), click "Open", make sure the box labeled "Always use the selected program to open this type of file" is checked, then click "OK".

Let me know if that solves your problem.

Cheers,

Walker

Will I have any issues if I upgrade to Windows 7 64?

My computer came with Vista 32bit

A:Went from Vista 32bit to Windows 7 32bit.

It more than likely can do x64 without knowing something about your hardware no one can be certain. Most chips made since the introduction of vista do support 64 bit though. The only real question is if your cpu runs 64 bit instructions or not.

An update.

I've tried running MalwareBytes and RKill from a flash drive which is also not working. Windows also ends up unable to load, the startup repair runs and things work fine. Not long after Windows tries to update and then it becomes unable to load again and the startup repair runs again.

I tried running a registry fix for the .exe problem and I get an error stating that the registry is being used even when no programs are running and I am in safe mode.

Hope this information helps

I was just curious if Windows 8 32 bit is able to handle more then 4g of RAM now. I know in previous versions, this was the maximum for the 32 bit. It just seems that since -everything- you buy now has 4g of ram in it, including tablets, that the software might have changed to accommodate it.

Without special hardware and software ~3.25 gigs is all you will get. If your hardware can handle it run 64 bit.

HP shipped my laptop with the wrong version of Windows. Rather than go through the pain of sending it back to them to get it refunded I wanted to know one quick thing:

The back of the laptop has a key that says "PRO OA" followed by the key.

If I use the key on the back, can I just install Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, and use the key from the 32 bit version? Or no? Reason I ask is because I REALLY do not want to have to send it back and have such a huge hassle with them.

TL;DR Can I use my Win 7 Pro 32bit key, on the same computer with Win 7 Pro 64.

Hi Hydrogen, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Windows 7 licences are edition dependent, that's all. You can use your Windows 7 Pro key to install and activate either a 32 or a 64-bit Windows. A good example is retail packs of Windows 7; you get one licence key and both 32 and 64-bit install DVDs, then it's up to user to choose which bit version to install.

G'day,

Windows 8.1 has now successfully been installed on the Samsung notebook mentioned a while ago which had Win 8 64 and 32 installed but that OS broke.
I installed the 32 bit version of the two available as I did not know any better.
I would now like to instal the 64 bit version in case it is required at a later date as I will not have access to the machine in the future.
Is this to be recommended?
Is it possible?
How is this done, please?
I put the 64 bit dvd in the optical drive and clicked on setup which resulted in a popup saying "this app cannot run on this PC".
Does the 64 bit installation include the attributes of the 32 bit as well?
Do I need to un-instal the 32 to enable the installation of the 64?
Hope someone can help, please.
Cheers,
stuman.

Hi every one

I am running Vista 64x, and I recently did fresh reinstall since then I can not go higher then 32bit its just not there to select on my Display settings or Geforce. I am using a Geforce 9800 gtx and have done all the updates drivers ect. I the system is saying every thing is working but still the highest I can select is at 32 bit. I am really stumped and could use a hand.

Thanks.

A:Will not go more then 32bit

The maximum possible graphics display capability it 32-bit - there is no better in Windows. This equates to a possible 16 million colours - if you can see more, you have problems that are not of this world

So I just bought a new XPS from Dell.
Had them put in 4gb of ram. But of course winXP is only showing 3GB. I called dell and the guy told me that despite the fact windows is only recording 3GB of ram it is using all 4gig.

Seems like a load of BS to me but I dont know 100% to go arguing with them.... yet. Can anyone confirm or disprove what the tech was saying?

Yes the BIOS records 4gigs.

Thanks

It is in fact addressing all 4GBs.

Hi i always used win7 (32bit) but had 4gig ram, so i deciced to upgrade it to 64bit.
Both where installed fine with basic windows drivers.

But with the 32bit version my Windows Performance Index was higher then 65bit.
On the 32bit my processor and RAM got an 5+ and now with 64bit they get a 4.5.

Aren't those supposed to be better since they go from 3.3useable ram to 4?

Thanks in advance.

A:32bit better then 64?

I really dont bother about the WEI score. On Win7 32bit, my system rating was 3.7 and in 64bit, the rating dropped to 3.5. But I like 64 bit OS. Reason: Does any one still play the old 8bit games? No, right.

That just really depends on whether or not the BBC iPlayer plugin is made available in 64-bit also.

This is the primary reason why 64-Bit Internet Explorer adoption has been so slow. You can't use a 32-bit plugin on the 64-bit version of IE.

When i try to copy files, every 5 secs or so my computer will freeze for 10 secs, then start going again, and freeze. I think this is caused by the MSDOS mode harddrives.

The reson I wasnt the 32-bit harddrives is because i want to connect 2 moniters to my computer and the help file tells me I need a 32-bit harddrive mode.

You ask if you can install "both" but then list four OS's. Which do you want to install, and why?

You don't have to install them in order of age if you already have Win7. You can shrink it's partition and add new partitions for the other OS's following these tutorials:
Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and Vista
Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP

I would seriously consider virtualizing XP using Virtual Player, Virtual Box or VMWare freeware. You'll have a lot of problems adding an XP installation although we can help you work through them - starting with repairing Win7 to start it up after XP install so you can add XP using EasyBCD.

I can only assume Dell still have a load of Vista rigs to shift first. There may even be people who want to stick with Vista - can't think why though.

can any please tell me if i fit 2x4gb memory moduels but only install win 7 32bit( which will only see up to a total of 4bg of memory), will my motherboard run in duel channel or single channel.

also will the other 4bg memory moduel ever get used if i install win 7 32 bit.

A:[SOLVED] win 7 32bit or win 7 64 bit

If installed in the correct slots the memory will still run in Dual Channel but as

you are aware Windows (32-BIT) will only recognize up to about 3.25GB of memory.

If installing 8GB then it would be beneficial to have a 64-bit OS.

Hi ,

About 7 months ago I bought a Toshiba notebook (A100-599) and there is 32bit vista home premium comes with it. But after a while I got bored and installed xp maybe it's because everyone was saying things like vista is not ready yet...
The thing I wonder is should I stick with the 32bit home premium or go buy a 64 bit ? I actually don't know if my laptop can run 64bit but it says that core2duo processors can do it.
If someone can help me out of this I'll be really glad .

PS : I'm a normal home user, I don't really use programs that can push the processor too hard but still I use photoshop and play games sometimes. Is there an important performance difference between 32bit and 64bit ?

If you click the link below it will take you to the download page of the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisory Tool. Download/install then run this tool and it will tell you of what the laptop can handle.

A:64bit vs 32bit

64bit?

64bit processors have the ability to run 64 bit operating systems(i.e. windows xp pro 64bit), and use 64 bit applications. 64 bit allows more system memory, among other things. Yeah the fx55 amd is over $1000 and is "only" 2.6ghz. But it is the fastest cpu in existance right now, so that "justifies" it's price. It beats an intel 3.8ghz. A 64bit 1.8ghz cpu, which is equivalent to a p4 3ghz is about $150. Not that expensive, and way cheaper than intel's new 64 bit chips.

A:Installed 32bit - would like to try 64 bit

No - you don't have to pay for anything extra. You can install the 64 bit version.
No - you will lose all of your data that is on the system partition (ie: C drive). You cannot upgrade from 32 bit to 64 bit; that requires a clean install. You will have to back up all of your data to another partition/external drive/USB/etc.

A 64bit system "can" be faster, but that really depends upon you using native 64bit applications and large data sets which take advantage of the 64bit architecture. I'd say for 95% of people, there really will be no tangible performance benefit with 64bit.

From a security standpoint, rootkits and such have had a much harder time in a 64bit arena...but they are finally getting in there and screwing up 64bit builds as well.

The "only" reason I am running 64bit is because I run more than 4GB of RAM (for virtual machines), and 64bit is the only way to address it all.

I have a HP 8GB desktop that I had major problems with. I had to do a clean reinstall and had no repair disks or oem disks for it. I only had access to a 32bit oem in which I used to reinstall. Is there a way to get it back to 64bit without buying a new oem windows 7 64bit. Someone gave me a disk that they had made with all versions on it but is now corrupt. How did they make this disk? I can't get in touch with them or I would ask them.

A:32bit to 64bit

HP and other computer manufacturers no longer include disks with their systems. They do include a recovery partition which is what you need to use to reinstall the operating system.Method 1. Tap the F11 key when first booting the machine. You will see the Recovery Manager. If presented with a help screen choose System Recovery. Follow the steps.Method 2. Follow the directions here http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01868333&cc=ad&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_r1002_usen_c-001_title_r0004. Although this is for install of software and drivers you can choose System Recovery to reinstall Windows 7. You can also create disks of the recovery partition. Go to Start/Programs.Look for HP folders. I'm not sure of the names of the folders. Look through them for anything related to Recovery and creating the disks.Click that option, go through it to see how many disks you need and what type. When you do create them, have a Sharpie handy so you can label them 1, 2, etc.HP allows for one set of disks to be made. If you want more than 1 set you can do a disk-to-disk copy. Copies are useful if the original disk gets broken or scratched or lost. If all else fails you can contact HP and see if they will send you the disks. They shouldn't cost very much.

I am using XP Pro 32 bit OS. I already have 3 GB (1GBx3) RAM modules installed, each of 667MHz DDR2 type. I know that 32bit windows can at most use/support 3GB of RAM; but does it mean if I install one more 2GB RAM module, application which are memory intensive, like Adobe Photoshop will not be able to use the total of 5GB memory?

My current OS is Windows XP SP2 32bit, and it has no issues, can boot fine, sounds great, videos great, it boots fast, etc. I have no issues with it at all.

I'm thinking of dual-booting but I'm not entirely sure what I should dual boot along side my current OS. I definitely don't want Ubuntu 8.10 32bit, I've had it and it didn't do anything for me.

Suse 11.0 is a very good 64 bit OS. I have played with 20 to 30 variations of Linux and out of all of them I go for Puppy Linux 4.2 (32 bit), Slitaz 2.0 (32 bit) I judge them by trying to imagine what a first time user would think of them. Both come on a live cd and this is probably the way to try before taking the big leap. Out of the two Slitaz has the easiest setup, i.e it configures the internet (wired) as it loads, so you can surf .
Suse 11.0 is very slick and professional compared to any other Linux I have come across.
Be aware Linux often requires drivers to be installed manually and it can be VERY confusing if you don't know what your doing. Be prepared for a BIG learning curve.

I just recently took an interest in learning everything about my computer and im in the process of upgrading it, and wanted to upgrade my ram but was told with 32bit it can only take 3.56GB and I want to upgrade to 6.

I dont know much about Operating Systems, and would like to know how I can upgrade it to 64bit

A:Have 32bit want 64bit

Do you want upgrade to 6GB ddr2 or 6gb ddr3?

If it's ddr2, you'd be better off with 8GB to keep it in dual channel interleaved mode compared to dual channel asynchronous mode.

Now, did you buy Vista x32 or did it come with the machine pre-installed?

If you bought it yourself, you should be able to contact Microsoft and get them to send the x64 version. It's free, but you'll most likely have to pay for postage.

If it came pre-installed with the machine, your best bet would be to contact the manufacturer and see if they do a free upgrade, otherwise you may to purchase another copy.

Either way, it will require a fresh installation. It's not possible do an in place upgrade of x32 to x64.

tho obviously it would be useful to know if many users are having problems with it.. tho there are few l can see from the quick browse l did... on that note lm also assuming l can install the 64bit at a later date if l install the 32bit when l get it and wont be met by activation issues as long as my hardware doesnt drastically change.

It should work if you use the key on the same machine.

Most keys are locked into the motherboard. If you replace your motherboard, you must contact MS. Someone mentioned something about OEM and non OEM keys and how the non-OEM keys aren't tied to hardware. If you're worried about it, you may want to look into that.

There are two RAM sticks in there. Each one has 2GB making a total of 4GB installed.

Under system properties it says "Installed memory (RAM): 4.00 GB (2.25 GB usable)"





Things I've tried.

Installed 3 different RAM sticks to test the DIMM slots. The slots are fine. The sticks I got are fine.

Took out the CPU to check for bent pins. Did a through look. Nothing bent.

Advanced Boot options. Checked, unchecked, either option did nothing.

Updated to the lasted BIOS to try and change some sort of advanced Mem Mapping stuff. BIOS is really basic and provides no such option.



Anyone have any other suggestions?

Whenever you change from 32 bit to 64 bit, you MUST do a clean install - all previous installed software will be deleted.

In your case, however, I would not bother...your system only has 1GB RAM, so installing 64 bit will offer no benefit at all. Keep the 32 bit installation as is and save yourself the trouble of reinstalling.

My motherboard supports maximum of 8GB memory.Please clarify.Thank you.

A:XP Pro 32bit and maximum RAM

A 32-bit Windows operating system will recognize up to 4GB of RAM, but will not show the total amount because of the draw from critical functions such as the system BIOS, motherboard resources, memory mapped I/O, AGP, PCI, PCI-E, and other memory allocations for PCI devices.

Different onboard devices and different add-on cards (devices) will result in different total memory size. This means that the more PCI cards installed will require more memory resources, resulting of less memory free for other uses.

Your motherboard may be able to support 8GB of RAM, but the operating system is what determines how much will be recognized. You would need a 64-bit operating system to recognize the whole 8GB of RAM.

A:32bit or 64bit?

Honestly,

It really all depends on what software will run under which OS.

Your Core 2 Duo is 64 bit supported, so the OS will run on that processor. 64Bit vista is more secure and really shines when you have 4gig+ of RAM.

On the other hand, it all depends on whether or not your apps work under Vista. A good portion of mine do not, so I would venture to say that yours will not either.
