First of all I'm by no means a computer guru.
My question is when I upgrade my internet explorer browser, does this take up much memory? For example, I now have the 32-bit, and want to upgrade to the 64-bit explorer-9. I canceled after about 45-minutes of down loading and still not finshed.I show that I have 76% free space left. If I go back and try to down load internet explorer-9 again will this slow my system down. What should I do? THANKS!

That is not an upgrade going from 32 bit to 64 bit....

What version of IE are you now running?

Where were you downloading from?

What was your download speed?

What OS are you running?

What hardware do you have?

What is the size of your hard drive? (percentage remaining without knowing the size is useless)....

What do you think this "64 bit upgrade" will do for you?

Here are IE 9's requirements:

Definitely need the above questions answered, too many variables to provide correct info with the little info that was provided.

If you're running Windows Vista or Windows 7 64 bit you already have Internet Explorer 64 bit, it's pre-installed, and 9 can be installed via Windows update. If you're running XP or the 32 bit version of Vista or 7, there is no way to install IE 64 bit on it.

If by your other thread you are using a surf stick, The download speed is going to be extremely slow. You need to go to an internet café for it to download faster. The current version of IE is 10 and needs 16-20 GB of storage space.
