Windows 7: I think i want to go from 64bit to 32bit...

FF x64 certainly won't help running the music programs the OP is desiring to run.

BTW, Alder, welcome to the Seven Forums!
The reason I started using FF was because of Silverlight (Netflix).. It wouldn't run on IE64. It works great on FF and so does Adobe Flash. It worked for me.

We're getting a bit off-topic here but, Alder, are trying to say Silverlight runs in FF x64? It doesn't. You must be running a 32 bit version of FF if Silverlight is working in the FF browser. Silverlight also works admirably in IE9 32 bit.

Yes, that is what I said. I have IE9 64 bit. Silverlight and Adobe both had problems with that. So I run them on FF. It solved my problem and I noticed that many other people are having the same problem. So I wanted to offer a solution that I found.

They'll work just as well on IE9 32 bit, Alder. If you've got IE9 64 bit, you also have IE9 32 bit. FF, in and of itself, has nothing to do with it. (I'm a diehard FF fan, BTW, look at my sig)

Now ... back to the topic ...

I don't know how to switch to IE93 2 from IE9 64 without purchasing a new program for $100. I tried and looked in many forums for an answer. I was just offering a solution that I found and it was on topic. That is how I found this thread.

IE9 32 bit is the default, IE9 64 bit is not. You should have them both installed:

Unfortunately, none of this is helping the OP with his issue so I'll leave you to figure out the differences between IE9 32 bit and IE9 64 bit and the default program that runs when you click on the standard IE9 icon - hint: it's not the 64 bit version. This has already been discussed here in more than a few threads.

Stick around, Alder, nice to have you here.

I have tried reaper, and it's not for me. Pro tools have some unique plug-ins that i simply love and can't live without :P

BriceH: I can't really say i know what you are talking about, is there somewhere i can read an guide or something to get some kind of understanding for what that is?

Thank you all for your replies and inputs!

I would suggest uninstalling Pro Tools, doing a little cleanup (with CCleaner if needed) and then reinstalling it in XP or Vista compatibility mode, depending on which OS the software has on its Minimum Requirements list.

Compatibility Mode
CCleaner - Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download

If there is a 64 bit version of Pro Tools install that. (I may be confused here due to your x86/x64 post)

Why not run IE 32bit and FF 32bit then?

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.
