    IE is not working but firefox does work. Tried installing IE8 optimized for
    MSN but I get the message "the installation does not support system
    architecture (32/64 bits." I tried installing IE8 for Windows Vista x64 but I
    get the message that an newer version is already installed on my computer. I
    am presently using firefox to send this message.

    Hi,
    Are you running 64-bit Vista? With 64-bit Vista you should already have
    32-bit and 64-bit versions of Internet Explorer installed.

    Do you have iexplore (or iexplore.exe) files located at:

    "C:/Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" (32-bit)
    and/or
    "C:/Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" (64-bit)

    Will Internet Explorer (either version) open by right-clicking the IE icon
    on the desktop (choose Start without add-ons.)
    or
    from Start> Programs> Accessories> System tools> Internet Explorer (no
    add-ons)

    If IE opens without add-ons, look at IE> Help> About (hit the Alt key if the
    Menu Bar isn't enabled.) Is there any mention of 64-bit in IE> Help> About?
