I was wondering if anyone could help.  One of our customers have a new online system in place which works on either x86 or x64 bit Internet Explorer.  The problem we have found now though is that if Internet Explorer has opened in x64 bit users are unable to scan into the system.

Does anyone know a way within group policy to stop Internet Explorer from opening in x64bit.

We are using Server 2008R2

Thanks in advance.

You can use a Group Policy Preference entry to remove the shortcut to 64bit IE. Create a new user policy and use User Configuration > Preferences > Windows Settings > Shortcuts and create a new Delete action with "%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Internet Explorer (64-bit)" as target Name. (Target type should be the default File System object and Location set to <Specify Full Path>)

That should do it.

Thanks.

Edited to remove .lnk from the target name.
