IE8 64bit and IE8 32bit both installed?

#1
I've never ran an OS that ws 64bit so maybe this is normal.
I just noticed that I have both IE8 64bit and 32bit. I only noticed because i was running the task manager and I noticed the little *32 after ieexplorer.exe.

I also noticed I have Internet Explorer and Internet Explorere (64-bit) under Start/All Programs.

Does everyone have this and is this normal?

normal, at least I got the same thing on my vista 64 and windows7 64 so I guess it's alright

this is normal in a x64 bit OS. if a process in running a x32 program then it puts the *32 next to it. on a 64 bit os both the 64 bit and 32 bit versions are available in case of compatibility issues.

One issue with 64-bit is there is no 64-bit Flash player available yet.

So I have discovered. You know, in about 5 years 64bit is going to be awesome.
