  1. windows downloading both 32 bit and 64 bit updates for a 64 bit system


    My HP Pavilion g7 is a 64 bit system and somehow Windows update is downloading both 32 bit updates and 64 bit updates, which sometimes seems to hang up the loading process ??? can I stop the 32 bit downloads as I probably don't need them? How?

    :)

    windows updates 32-bit and 64-bit hotfixs installed, I have a 64-bit system.

    I have reset my laptop which has the windows 10 home edition. While updating I have notice the windows updates have accumulated and installed a lot 32-bit updates with some 64-bit updates. I have a 64-bit system.

    My question, does the 32-bit updates affect my 64-bit system?

    If so should I uninstall the 32-bit updates?

    Why is window automatic updates recommending 32-bit when I have a 64-bit system?

    thanks

  3. How do I install IE 32 bit and/or switch from 64 bit to 32 bit?

    Windows 10: Internet Explorer

    • You need to have Windows 10 64-bit(x64) to use this feature
    • To check:
      • Click on Windows Key
      • Click on Settings
      • Click on System
      • On left panel click on About
      • On right panel check system type:
        • System Type: 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
          • That means you have Windows 10 64-bit
        • System Type: 32-bit operating system, x86-based processor
          • That means you have Windows 10 32-bit
    • Internet Explorer
      • 32-bit(x86):
        • C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplorer.exe
      • 64-bit(x64):
        • C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplorer.exe
    Note:
    • You cannot switch between Windows 10 32-bit to 64-bit. you need to re-install Windows 10 64 bit.
    • To download Windows 10 64-bit:
      Microsoft - "Windows 10 - Download tool now"
