    Are you using XP mode in Win 7 64bit or a VM with win XP 32bit? Because in the title it says Win7 64bit then in your post: o_O

    The IE8 comes in 2 flavours at WIN 7 64bit, one 64bit of course but also 32bit, latter the standard browser perhaps due to compatibility with say adobe flash e.g.

    the post is thus correct, WIN 7 64bit and IE8 32bit. and the screenshot is from Outlook 2010 64bit, if that matters

    For compatibility reasons you can use 32 or 64Bit IE on 64 Bit Windows.

    Can you use both on Win 7 64bit? As I will be adding Win7 64bit as a duel boot on my system to get familiar with it!

    Thanks! ;) Are they both there on install or is it a separate download?

    Both, the 32 and the 64Bit version, are ready to use right after installation of Windows 7 64Bit. For extensions this is handled differently, for Java for example you'll have to download and install the 32 and 64Bit versions seperately.
