Windows 7: Win 7 x64 IE10 wiki thumbnail & 64bit tab problems

Win 7 x64 IE10 wiki thumbnail & 64bit tab problems

Hi all, I just joined this forums after posting these two problems in two other forums but I figure with the large group base on here, I can find the answer I'm looking for easier.

I have two problems that are associated with the new Internet Explorer 10 that just came out for Windows 7 (the final IE10 for Win 7).
It is regarding the new higher security settings as well as 64bit tabs.
I tried Googling this but have found no answer.

I know these are related to IE10 because a few days ago I ran with IE9 64bit and didn't have these problems.

See the attached picture.
I have problems loading thumbnail pictures.
See the red circles I made? When I hover over the "episodes", it should change the menu item just below it to "seasons 1, 2, etc." It doesn't.
Also the thumbnail pictures at the bottom: "Alex, Nikita, etc.", it only shows Alex and Nikita, Michael and the rest are blanks.

This wiki is just an example, all other wikis I go to have these problems.
I can venture a guess and say it's some of the new higher security settings that IE10 defaulted to that are doing this, but I have no idea.

I installed IE10 (the final version that was released a few days ago) x64 (I know it's x64 cause I downloaded it to be 42mb, not the smaller 20mb 32bit one.
I am running 64bit Windows 7.
I start IE10 (under the x64 version in Program Files (Not the x86 one) but in the Task Manager, only the main IE10 window is a 64bit process. The other IE10 tabs are all 32bit. I have read many forums and people say running in Admin and going to IE10 settings to check "Enhanced Protection Mode" and then restarting IE10 will make all the tabs go to 64bit, but it doesn't! I have tried restarting my computer but it doesn't work.

I have read some of the IE10 forums on Sevenforums but no one seems to have my exact problem here.

Any help for the above two problems are much appreciated!!!

Hi guys, I've fixed the 1st problem by doing a System Restore to the point right before I installed IE10. I then subsequently installed the Platform update for Win 7 BEFORE I installed the IE10 and now it fixes the problem!

However, the 64bit problem still lingers. No matter what I do, I am not able to get IE10 to run its tabs in 64bit!

No one has this problem guys? Not a single person who installed IE10 64bit on a Windows 7 64bit has this problem?

I read other forums where similar problem occurred with the inability to run 64bit IE10 but with no answers too.
