Windows 7 with IE 8 64 bit problems

    I hope someone can assist me. I'm trying to load two programs on my new
    laptop, both seem to have compatibility issues with Windows 7 and/or 64 bit.
    How can I change my IE settings to 32 bit.

    The two programs are:

    Desktop weather (from weather.com)
    VZAccess Manager (used to tether my Blackberry for wifi access)

    Both seem have an issue with 64 bit, so I wanted to change it to 32 bit but
    don't know how.

    Appreciate anyone's suggestions or help!

    Thanks,
    Cheryle

    Windows 7 64-bit includes both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Internet
    Explorer 8.

    Internet Explorer is already on your machine in 32- and 64-bit versions. The
    64-bit is the default, so you have to drag the 32-bit icon to your Desktop
    or Quick Launch Bar.

    Click Start>Programs> then scroll the list to Internet Explorer. Notice two
    listings, one has (64-bit) following it. You want to run the other one. Hold
    the CTRL key and drag the 32-bit IE icon to the desktop or the Quick Launch.

    That won't fix the problem.

    PS
    You're posting HTML and a binary to a Text Only newsgroup. This is poor
    form, and you shouldn't be doing it.

    Nevermind, I changed my settings so your trangression does not affect me
    anymore.
