Downloads going to old Prog Files x86 folder
Today's nightmare is: I upgraded to 64 bit from a 32 bit machine months ago. Even though I have Tools/Options set to have downloads go directly to Program Files, I've discovered that my downloads are going to the old Program Files (x86) folder, e.g., I just download Secunia PSI and when opened in Program Files, the old version was there but the new version 3.0 is in PF (x86). I tried to cut and paste it to PF but it didn't work. I have a download Firefox extension, Download Status Bar, that I really like; it works great.
I know that some programs in 64 bit need the old 32 bit version trom PF (x86) to work but I'd like to delete PF (x86). Would that be OK?
Your ideas about why this is happening will be greatly appreciated. ec
