I had win7 32 bit installed. then wanted to try the 64 bit. I now have 2 Program File-folders 1 called Program File the other Program File (x86) and it seems that everthing I install is going into the (x86) folder. is this normal?
x86 is just that - for 32bit programs you install. If you install any which are recognised as 64bit, they will automatically be placed in the alternative folder It is not a user controlled function so don't worry too much about it.
