Hey guys. I wasn't going to sign up but I've gotten lots of help from this site so thought I'd chip in.

I was having problems like some of the users in this thread.

For users not getting 64bit Tabs in IE10 even though Protected Mode is enabled:

It seems to be the EnableLUA option in the Registry needs to be set to '1'.

If you know the registry you can go to: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System] ---> look for 'EnableLUA' right-click on it and modify it to '1'.

If you don't know the registry I'm sure you can go to Start -> type 'user' and click 'User Accounts' in the Control Panel Section. Then click: "Change User account Control Settings" Drag the slide bar all the way to the bottom so it reads "Never notify". Click OK.

This should be it. May need a reboot.

There are two Caveats (of course) being Microsoft.

1.) The UAC now being enabled may prompt you when programs need to make changes on your system. I hope we find a way to block this. It has not happened me yet but I've not really ran programs yet which would make changes.

2.) For me If I run a page which needs to use 32bit addons it will run the tab as 32bit. For instance I login to my Battlefield 3 profile page and it will use two EA plugins and they are listed as 32bit only addons. All my other addons such as: Adobe Flash, MS Silverlight and so on are listed as "32 and 64 bit".

PS - I found solution on another website but don't know if I can post links.

That looked like a great idea, which it was! But it didn't change things. Nice try!

I even tried unchecking "Disable 3rd Party Browser Extensions". That didn't help.

BTW - My anti-virus is MSE.
I can't see where the MS Security Essential would have any effect like that on any version of IE let alone 10. The other thing that comes to mind would be some type of registry error where you have a few leftovers the repeat installs of IE10 failed to see removed. I have to suspect this is why the extra 32bit items are showing up.

@ InsidiousChaos - thanks for posting, your post seems to contradict itself slightly? your saying to ENABLE LUA (User Account Control) in the registry then your saying if you dont know your way around the registry then to DISABLE it with 'Never Notify'...?? - mine is currently set too 'Never Notify' and LUA=0

Anyway, I didnt change LUA but U change UAC to ALWAYS NOTIFY and its still the same? - I have latest version of flash installed which supposedly has both 32-bit and 64-bit versions yes? the homepage is MSN and full of flash banners

I have no AV installed (and not had one installed) and this OS is only 3 weeks installed

Apologies for that it's a typo. I have done it the "Never Notify" way. I just read it on another forum. Ironically it was a guide to get IE 10 64bit tabs working in Win8. And it worked perfectly for me.

Why is your LUA still set '0'? That strikes me as odd.

Here is the post: (Paying particular attention to posts #2 & #5)

Code:
http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/40761-Solution-How-to-enable-IE10-x64-Mode
I just realised now I already had Windows Update Catalog (32bit) installed so I skipped that step in post #3. Also the Win Update Cat is set to disabled in my Manage Addons area. I don't have a clue what that guy was talking about when he mentioned the 64bit add-in.

However after I did go to my registry and set EnableLUA to '1' and rebooted, my tabs are all 64bit unless I'm using a 32 addon/plugin.

My registry entry is EnableLUA = '1'
My UAC is set to "Never notify"

I think that you meant to say that you have never done it the "Never notify" way....

Part of the confusion is the differences between Windows 7 and Windows 8:
Setting the slider to "Never notify" in Windows 7 will set EnableLUA to 0.
Setting the slider to "Never notify" in Windows 8 will NOT set EnableLUA to 0.
EnableLUA remains at 1 in Windows 8 and UAC remains enabled.

My guess on how you achieved this is:
At some point, you had the slider set to "Never notify" in Windows 7
Doing that set EnableLUA to 0 AND it sets ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin to 0
As you hinted at in your first post...
...you went into the registry and changed EnableLUA to 1

As far as I know, you cannot achieve the combination of settings that you mentioned without editing the registry; "the slider" won't do it. Any setting above "Never notify" on the slider will change ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin to a non-zero value. You are not as secure with ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin set to 0. The automated installation of malicious apps can occur without you knowing about it (without your consent).

Thanks for the info UsernameIssues.

Can you pls tell me what I should do? Should I leave the EnableLUA at '1'. But lift the slide to set it to some level of notification above "Never notify" in order to prevent auto installation of programs?

Or do I need to have the EnableLUA set to '0' along with the slider setting set anywhere above "Never notify"?

The thing is I can live with moving the slider setting if it makes my pc more safe even though the alerts can be annoying. But setting EnableLUA back to '0' will bring me back to 32bit IE10. Maybe I could just go back to IE9 instead.

InsidiousChaos has the right answer - at least for me, snadge. I set the EnableLUA to 1 in the registry (it was 0). I already had my UAC set to Never Notify. I restarted after the registry change & checked my UAC setting & it remained at Never Notify.

I now have 64-bit tabs in IE10!

Despite the slight confusion, InsidiousChaos, you found the answer. You've got a rep coming.

Move the UAC slider back to its default location, restart the computer and then all should work just fine.

By the way, welcome to the Seven Forums and thanks for posting your find.
