My son just did a clean install of Windows 7. After the install, there is are both c:\program files and c:\program files (x86). I went to look into this via searching on "Windows 7 program files (x86)" and found a lot of dialog. Basically about 32-bit and 64-bit. However, it was confusing. It seemed to talk about installing on top of Vista, etc.
He did a clean install, and not on top of anything.
Is it best to just leave everything alone? Many people seemed to ask about deleting the 32-bit x86 stuff, but others said you need it because some things (Flash was mentioned) are 32-bit only.
Or could the 32-bit (x86) directory be removed?
