IE x86 32bit default freezes some links



When links in Mail and else where are clicked some will not open and report "Not Responding" unless you first open IE x64. How can I make 64 the default instead of 32?

I'm having a similar problem with Windows Mail freezing when I open it with IE8 - RC1 -- and my system is 64 bit. I can open it and access links with FireFox, but not the IE8. Any suggestions out there?
