Windows 7: IE9 + W7x64 missing %Temp%\Low folder = can't print from IE9

IE9 + W7x64 missing %Temp%\Low folder = can't print from IE9

Trying to figure out why on W7x86 and IE9, I have no problems with printing from IE9... and the %Temp%\Low folder isn't missing.

Yet now that all our new W7 boxes are x64, I'm missing the Low folder every time...however, if I open IE9 as Admin (either from the Domain Admin profile or right clicking on IE from w/in the user's profile), I can print no probs...? I've even gone so far as to give the user temp Admin rights and the user still can't print...?!!! and it doesn't matter whether or not it's the x64 or the x86 IE

I know about the "fix" from MS (You cannot print or print preview Web pages in Internet Explorer on Windows Vista or on Windows 7), but feel as if there is something that is causing this and don't want to have to apply the fix for every single user's profile, every single time they clear out their Temp folder...

also, concerning the "fix"...if I fix it myself per the instructions and doesn't work...yet if I download and apply the MSI fix, then all is well...?

why oh why would MS hard code a required folder in the friggin Temp folder?!

(on a side note...I've noticed that all my scripts that I've written for W7x86 to copy/replace files, I'm now getting access denied on x64...but if I manually copy the files, I have no I need to do something different for x64 scripting? If I need to create a different thread, I will )
