Windows 7: Cannot install IE9 32bit on 64bit W7 OS! Really need help after virus!

06 Jun 2011   #21

Windows 7 Ultimate

1) accidentically got a virus from nowhere
2) examining the working, deleting harmfull dll's , msconfig -> disable all startup things, ie9 32 bit got infected, a malicius system hidden dll was found (removed with total commander)
3) replacing ie9 32 bit with ie9 64 bit (so I have two times IE installed)
4) everithing worked fine I am a gamer so I used my pc again etc etc.
5) I am a scripter for games so I like to script, Yet everithing worked fine but I did not 'test out' the compile option because I had already compiled the script on a friends PC.
6) Installing SP1
7) Wanting to update my script, compile -> crash
8) 5 days of searching for solutions, found that it uses internet exlporers ieproxy.dll , I knew what was going on.. Visual Studio is an 32 bit app and I got the 64 bit dll. So I replaced it back and My browser didn't work
9) did the steps on this topic to 'fix' it.
10) I can again normally use my PC.

KaPeWu? (do you understand?)

I'm not sure. The reason I ask is because people like me who don't wright script and such things could not go through all that. Their must be a way of removing the virus or malware and downloading I.E 9 again and get the dll's working again with the new I.E. installed. A least I hope so.

Able to install 32bit but not 64bit
So I messed up my laptop, it was Win 7 home 64bit. I formatted it and do a clean install, but I can only install 32bit. When I try to install 64bit, I get "hardware problem and installation could not be complete" what's that?

How do I install Windows 7 64bit instead of 32bit
I have Windows 7 32bit with an upgrade disc (so it only has the 32bit on it) and I would like to put 64bit on. I don't care about my data or programs (they are backed up) but I am wondering where I could get iso images and whether my product key will work.

Anyway to have 32bit and 64bit on the same usb for install?
I know how to install windows from usb, and know how to tweak it so I can install home/prof/ultimate from the same iso, but is there a way I can have both 32 and 64 bit copies on the same disk, without having to move files around before I boot from the usb? Thanks

W7 64bit:Ok to install 32bit programs outside the 32bit programfolder?
OS: Win 7 64bit. Is it generally not a problem to choose to install a piece of 32bit software outside the win 7 default program folder for 32bit software? Or is 32bit software only supposed to be running flawlessly, if installed in that default 32bit folder? Thanks.
