    Have you researched the opportunities Windows Live One Care solution can provide for the 64bit Windows Operating System?  If not I would recommend this a a solution for not only Firewalls but as well as the other benefits which are provided by One Care.

    Currently there isn't an Internet Explorer 64-bit ActiveX control for either OGA or WGA controls.  This is due to the Windows Genuine Advantage control accommodating 32bit sessions of Internet Explorer only.  Start a 32bit session of Internet Explorer, which is the default session when choosing the link IE link from the “Start” menu or desktop shortcut and go to http://www.microsoft.com/genuine  and then validate either Windows or Office. You can also use the alternate validation method of Validating using an x64 bit session of IE by using this link: http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/downloads/RunHTA.aspx?displaylang=en&sGuid=4e3c774a-d5d6-467a-a403-d7bfa1757020&page=validate 

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Support.

     

    I hope this has helped,
