Windows 7: IE9 will only open in 64-bit

If it completely fails on me (Which I doubt will happen) then I'll have no choice.

Sorry I couldn't be of any more help, but we might as well let the thread run in the hope someone else has any ideas.

Sounds like your shortcuts are mixed up .
Open windows explorer quick keyboard shortcut " Win R then enter \ in the search field " open the Program Files (x86) then open the Internet explorer folder & start it from there.

For Windows 64 bit, your system drive (normally C:\ ) Program Files are for the 64 bit programs & Program Files (x86) are for the 32 bit programs.

That is definitively the correct location for IE9 32 bit , I think you should open Windows update > Installed updates & remove IE9 you will revert back to IE8 then check updates & choose IE9.

Hmm, I went to Internet Explorer in the 64-bit Program Files folder.
It looks like I have it back to normal now. It likes to change from 32-bit to 64-bit
But here's a thing I just noticed: Now if I open the 32-bit (Pinned to the left) it will open in another window...

Assuming you're opening the 32bit browser icon (and getting a 64bit browser), there can be a few reasons for this (all of them in the registry ). If you take a process monitor log while the problem is occurring (start procmon, open IE, save the procmon log to a .pml file) and post it somewhere, we can probably figure out why it's happening (and hopefully how to fix it).

Read my last post and then this.

It's just getting annoying. First 2 are 32-bit IE, last on the right is 64-bit.
If I open the one I got from Program Files(x86) and pin it, then open the other window it spawns, pin it and close it, then open that this is what happens. 32 > 32 > 64. ???

I still say get a procmon log - that doesn't seem like normal behavior for a CreateProcess call.

OK, how and what would I send you from ProcMon?
