Windows 7: Problems Navigating on Windows 7 64bit

Problems Navigating on Windows 7 64bit

I'm currently using the Windows 7 Ultimate (64bits) however I can't seem to navigate on the internet using the regular 32bit internet browsers, only the 64bit ones. However most programs that need to connect to the internet, such as gaming programs seem to use the 32bit browsers, thus stating that they can't navigate. Does anyone have a solution to this or will I simply have to restore my computer to Windows Vista?
Thanks and brgrds,
Ceipe

Use 32 bit version if you don't like 64-bit version!

It's not that I don't like it, I was wondering if there's a solution or if indeed I would have to use the 32bit version.

Could you provide a screenshot of "not able to navigate"? OR, from within a 32-bit browser, go to INternet option, connections, and run through the wizard. I am curious to the results.

Ok, I've attached the homepage display for both, first eh 32bit IE and then the 64bit IE. Then is the diagnose report of the IE 32bit and finally the version I'm using of Firefox, or should I say Shiretoko. As you can see I can ONLY navigate on 32bit browsers and since the default properties say that no 64bit browser can be made default programs such as MANTIS (UDE program), World of Warcraft, Heroes of Newerth and other programs that use the default browser to connect to the internet, thus using the 32bit ones who seem not to respond.

In Device Manager, do you have any splats?

I did read an interesting piece just now about clock speeds as handled by drivers. Are your NIC drivers current?

None except an Unknown device on the Human Interface Devices.

Not sure about the NIC dreivers, considering I'm able to navigate on 64bit but not on 32bit I'm guessing I do. BTW, Ventrilo, Messenger and the Windows updater do seem to work, it's only programs who seem to use the default browser who have problems.
