IE 9 64 bit problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running Win 7, 64-bit.  When I open IE 9, 64bit, some features of websites don't work properly; e.g., the page doesn't open or a video won't run.  When I open IE 9 32-bit, I access a website but when I click on a link to go to another feature, say printing a bank statement or something, I get a white page.  No matter what I do, I cannot get anything to appear on that page.  I have to close out the IE 32-bit and reopen with IE 64-bit to make it work.  I have all the latest updates and security packages for my Microsoft products so this is not the issue.  It's as if Flash and Active X components are only loaded for the 64-bit version but not the 32-bit one.  I'm getting tired of going back & forth between browser versions to get everything to work correctly.  Do I need to uninstall IE 9 and reinstall it?  Will that fix the problem or is the problem unfixable?  I've read where it's not advisable to use 64-bit IE because there is no need to and not much is written to support 64-bit.  How do I get all the features of the 64-bit version into the 32-bit version of IE and just use 64-bit version occassionally?  Will uninstalling IE 9 cause more problems for me then it's worth or do I just switch to Firefox and get it over with?

  • The true solution is don't use ie9 64 bit,

    Then open 32 bit version click on the gear symbol on the top right point at safety and uncheck anything that is checked,

    Then click on internet options and go to the advanced section and check the top box,

    Use software rendering instead of gpu rendering, apply and okay.

    Close and reopen a 32 bit page,

    Redownload adobe products, flash / shockwave players,
