    To Jade !!
    Yes, you will need both 32 and 64 bit Java for a 64 bit installation of Windows. Only IE8 has a 64 bit browser at the moment (although, Firefox does have a Unsupported 64 bit version in progress) so, if you use Firefox or Chrome or Opera… it is recommended to install both versions of Java. I do. The current versions are : Version 6 update 22.

    FLASHORN.
