Not sure what the difference is between the 32 and 64 bit versions of IE9.
Decided to try the 64 bit version and found that MSN Zone Games such as Spades and Hearts will not load.
Can sign in OK but when I select play now I get :-
Whoops!

Not a train smash since the 32 bit version works.
Just curious as to why the 64 bit vesion doesn't.

64-bit browsers are relatively new and aren't supported by a lot of add-ons yet, apparently you found one.

There is absolutely no reason for using the 64-bit version of Internet Explorer. There are no advantages. It isn't faster, and if your browser needs a larger memory address space then your system's got problems.

On the other hand, 64-bit browsers do potentially have a huge DISADVANTAGE that could be very important to the health of your system. If you use a 32-bit anti-virus then there is no add-on from your A/V to scan webpages for malicious scripts or to warn of known "risky" websites.

So the conclusion is that,
If you find anything that is not working with IE 64 bit,use it with IE 32 bit.
Most of the software companies are only still deloping 64 bit versions
