Question Two versions of IE9 on Windows 7

My Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit has two versions of Internet Explorer - one is 32bit and the other 64bit.
At the moment the computer is set to use the 32bit version - is there any advantage or disadvantage if I change to using the 64bit version?

You should use the 32 bit version. The 64 bit is much slower.

Thank you both - it seems advisable to stay with the 32bit version!

Great program Bob. I checked mine in Win 7 and Firefox was fastest by far.
