Of course not. An x86 version is for a 32bit OS.

I was testing this out.
I can't even find the free x64 version now.

Yeah, it uses its "downloader/installer".

I just did a test download from CNET and scanned the file with Avast free, MBAM Pro, SAS, and Spybot S&D; all scans were clean. If CNET used a downloader, it had to be already on my computer; if so, it must be harmless because I never get hits on it from my anti-malware programs.

Cnet is harmless. The problem is that the downloads often drag a lot of junk along, e.g. toolbars. Better check your installed programs. You may have a couple new ones.

I checked my installed programs and toolbars after downloading and didn't find anything new or suspicious.

You were lucky. I caught them a few times - not always though.

Like Lady F I downloaded to see and Malwarebytes, Norton didn't have any issues.
You select the Options to then select 32/64 bit. What's interesting is that there are pe 3,4,5 Rescue options as well. I downloaded a pe4x64.zip file but not sure what you do with it.
When you unzip it under windows\8.0\... it contains a winpe.wim.
