On the Taskbar are several icons, one of which is the Internet Explorer icon. This icon points to 32-bit IE. If you click on it, 32-bit IE opens.

If you want to start 64-bit IE, then you can open it by going through the Start Menu. In Start Menu, you have both 32-bit and 64-bit IE icons.

If you open the properties of 32-bit IE and then add -private to the end of the line in the target window, you get private browsing IE. Private browsing means nothing is saved on the hard disk. When you close IE window, everything is deleted. This is useful, I guess, when doing on-line banking.

On your start menu you have both 32bit and 64bit. If you are missing one from your desktop, you can fix this by right clicking on it and going to 'send to' and 'Desktop as a shortcut'.
You can change which is default by gojng to 'tools' 'internet options' and you should be able to find a check box there that says 'set as my default browser' and click Apply or OK.
Go to www.java.com and look for the download for the 64bit Internet Explorer (At the beginning we needed to download both if you were using both browsers, it may not be that way anymore).
Go to www.adobe.com and download 'reader' and 'flash' for 64bit Internet Explorer (At the beginning we needed to download both if you were using both browsers, it may not be that way anymore).
Some sites still do not fully support 64bit Internet Explorer yet so like many you will still need to use 32bit or Firefox on those sites (I have come to like Firefox better and it is free at www.mozilla.com .

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.
