Found a workaround until everyone gets onboard with 64 bit...
Just bought a new laptop with all the goodies already installed (including Windows 7 IE8 32 bit and IE8 64 bit). Tried everything to get Adobe Flash... Would not
allow me to download hardly anything (Firefox, Opera for example) without getting an error message.
able to download Google Chrome
and through GC I was
able to get Flash and YouTube is working just fine.
So, now our primary browser is Google Chrome and if needed IE 8 is still there.
Thanks to everyone with suggestions on this thread. You were all very helpful!
