Why windows 7 64 bit edition launches internet explorer 32 bit by default?

    Why windows 7 64 bit edition launches internet explorer 32 bit by default?

    Have you noticed it? When you launch IE9 from task-bar, windows 7 launches 32 bit internet explorer (you can verify it by opening task manager. it'll show iexplore.exe*32). Is this due to flash support issues? Flash square 64 bit still not mature yet? Or any other reason?

    Flash support is an issue also some systems have other (software?) related issues when running at 64 bit (compatibility?). Microsoft has always had compatibility issues with different software and hardware brands in general (as most companies have had or do have as well).
