It's a choice Microsoft made.

I guess that I should have been more specific in my question

Yes, I am running 64 bit version of windows on my computer, but it's not windows 8, it's still windows 7 HP. that the Yahoo toolbar will not show up on my IE browser.

The same thing happens in 7.

It's the same reasons and nothing new is going on here. Microsoft controls the 64-bit version tightly plus Yahoo would have to issue a 64 bit version. Since the audience for 64-bit IE is so small, most companies won't bother.
