I'm in favour of the idea - but I dont feel it should be a priority yet. I've been running 64 bit windows for a while, so have a few friends, but not one of us uses the 64 bit version of the browser. Why? Because too much of the net is broken - despite there having been 64 bit versions of IE about for at least 4 years, there is no flash plugin, and I am fairly sure there are other browser plugins that dont have a 64 bit version either (admittedly, I stopped looking after flash). Until this basic issue is resolved, which is outside of symantec's control, 64 bit browsers are going to have a minority share - so the toolbar will be used by even fewer.
Also, whoever said about windows 7 being the last 32-bit OS is right - but remember that so far all 64 bit OSes have defaulted to a 32 bit browser - I see no reason for this to change anytime soom.

Hello, I should have queo NIS 2011 will support 64-bit browsers (thus would have fewer limits on protection), and this month that IE 9 beta is released (even more with HTML5) will not be many pluings. The use of browsers is expected to increase by 64 bits (I think better on 15 or 16 to release an update symantec support for the new IE beta 9 (32 and 64). After all this protection is paid !!!!!!

PLEASE add support for Windows 8 64-bit edition. It kinda makes my whole upgrade to 64 bit Windows useless if I have to run the 32-bit edition of IE-8. AND, I am too used to using identity cards to not having them available ... much less all the other Norton protections.
WE NEED IE-8 64 BIT SUPPORT !!!

Hi Symantec Team,
As there are quite a few people who have 64-bit Win 7 who wish to upgrade to IE9 (from IE8), I request you to make NIS 2011 components w.r.t. IE9 compatible for 64-bit versions fully functional, as 64-bit OSs are the way forward. I noted a post by Tony Weiss on the same and I believe Symantec will release a hotfix (similar to a hotfix for FF4 released recently) for IE9 sometime in May 2011. Hope that project is on schedule !
