thanks for the help.
any more probs an i'll start a new thread.. if can figure that
IA64.exe an x64.exe an x86.exe ... or do i need all.. i use 64 bit IE 9 .... but also have 32 bit IE 9
Internet Explorer x86 is the 32-bit version of the browser while IE x64 is the 64-bit version.

You can use either one of the two and you may find that IE x64 loads a bit quicker although you may find there are issues with Adobe Flash x64. Adobe have released a beta version of their Flash 64-bit application, but we're still waiting for the full working version for IE9 x64.

I guess not really ..I went for the important one first (the one that is checked first on auto update) followed by the other two ( any order )

depending on your OS, you probably need x64 (for 64bit) or x86 (for 32bit)

Windows 7 64bit

I was just hit by this tonight. The fix it tools for this didn't fix anything.

I'm installing 64bit version manually as suggested.

Doing this manually, am I just putting off the problem for another day? Is there a tool that will _really_ fix windows update properly?
