MS really messed around with that page - it used to be simple flat-formatted.
click on the Method2 + sign (under the Resolution header) - it expands to a list of downloads.
You want the Windows 7 x64 version
While it's downloading (it's a big file!) read the 'more information' section.

So they are, my mistake. I wonder why though.

Please run another scan, and post the new log - it'll tell us if anything remains to be done.
Well that was lucky!

I'm impressed you managed to spell everything correctly! Or was it autocorrect?
