    Daughters new HP Laptop running Win7, 64bit. Any advantage to using the 64bit IE browser over the 32bit version? I've read about a few instances of the 64bit IE8 having some problems with Flash.Limited usage of theIE8 64bit version seems to be working OK. Any insight would be appreciated/

    Thanks darthrevan945 and aka Brett for your responses. I'll tell her to stick with the 32bit version.
