This keen observation is why you get the big bucks and all the cool badges.

If you want to make it your default browser just use the default programes option from the start menu

I am running 64 bit too.

That will make the 32 bit version default - not the 64 bit - pretty sure I'm right on this.

Default Programs only list Internet Explorer - no 32/64 option - at least on my machine.

Yes I believe you are correct, only IE is listed and it makes the x86 version the default. If I open a link in an e-mail and IE is not already open the x86 version launches. Make default is also greyed out in the x86 version but I believe that is because it already is the default browser. It is for me anyway as I don't have another browser installed.

Same thing for me, but I have FF installed.
SO - based on these latest posts, I'm gonna say the 64 bit version of IE 9 cannot be set as default. This is my final answer.
