You can run 32-bit programs, but you will have to install the windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe SP1 file from the link above if you wanted to use the standalone SP1 installer.

EDIT:
LOL, I think our minds are linked Gary.

Windows7 IE8
 
 

Hello!
I finally had time today to do all the updates...and it was way more than I thought...lol!
I did the SP1 first, then I took a chance and did the remaining ones. These were all Critical Updates for Windows. Then I did the Microsoft Office ones.
I have not noticed any problems... is there anything that I should look for??

Also there are still 5 listed as Important that I did not do.. one of them is the Browser Update to 9?
Do I need to do them? Or any of the optional ones.

Thanks again for all your help!

Vickie,

That's great news. It sounds like everything went fine then. If there was a problem, you would get a failure notice for any Windows Update that failed to install.

I would recommend to install the Important updates as well. If you really didn't want to install IE9, then it would be fine to skip it. However, it does have better security. Optional updates are optional to install as well, but I would recommend to read what they are for to see if you may want or need to install them. For example, if you have MSE installed, MSE definition updates are optional, but should be installed to keep MSE up to date.

What is MSE?

If I install IE9...will I lose my favorites?

MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) is a antivirus/malware program by Microsoft used as an example. It's definition updates are available in Windowss Update when installed.

No, you will not lose anything that was set in IE8. It will all be transferred into IE9.
