Program Files Folder

I have two program files folders, one of which has (x86) on the end. I guess this may have something to do with vista being a 64bit version.

I notice programs install into either one, what programs are best installed in them and do programs automatically pick the best folder depending what is the best option.

Yes, the selection seems to happen automatically ensuring best compatibility, & shouldn't be manually changed.

I don't use Vista, but I've noticed similar behaviour in Win7 RC 64-bit. G

Thank you
