Re: IE8 64-bit
Yes, I'm evidently running the 32-bit edition of IE8. The 64-bit must
have some advantages, but IE is so much quicker under Vista 64 on this
computer than I've ever experienced before, that I'm as happy as the
proverbial clam as-is.
Thanks to you and all the other guys who provide all the good help and
tips to us novices.
