i have a laptop with windows 7 64bit

when i go to download things a lot of them try to go to the programs (x86) folder why is this

isnt the 86 folder the 32bit file?? should i make them go to the regular programs file?

the 2 that tryed to do it was world of warcraft which i moved anyway and now visual studio is trying to go there.

32-bit programs will go into the (x86) folder, 64-bit ones into the normal Program Files folder. Not all programs that you install will be 64-bit ones. Don't worry about it.
