Windows 7: Cannot install IE9 32bit on 64bit W7 OS! Really need help after virus!

Cannot install IE9 32bit on 64bit W7 OS! Really need help after virus!

So I removed a virus infection in ie9 32 bit by replacing the whole internet explorer folder from program files (x86) with the internet explorer folder from the 64 bit program files.
Now I need to compile projects in Visual Studio , the program needs the 32 bit version of ieproxy.dll but when I add the 32bit backed up version I cannot browse the internet, IE won't even startup at all! So I replaced it back, I don't have a system restore point from before the 'shit'. Also using 'turn windows features on or off' doesn't seem to fix my browser problem, it remains 64bit.

I have downloaded the 32bit installer but it says the 64bit OS is not supported! What the Heck? ! So I extracted the contents of the package with Universal Extractor but it's a huge mess.. I don't know what to copy and paste etc.. about a few hundred thousanmd dll inf and exe files just to install ie9 32bit?

Edit:
Also I did run "sfc /scannow" to remove the virus from my computer, but IE9 32 bit still remained infected! conclusion: sfc does not repair IE.
addition : I also ran sfc /scannow to remove the virus from my system but IE9 remained affected, that is why I did the above steps!

Please help me out, can somebody upload their %program files (x86)%/Internet Explorer/ directory, please? (internet explorer 9 ofcourse).

Thanks in advance.

For 64-bit systems, you need to download and install the 64-bit version of IE9. The 64-bit version also includes the 32-bit edition, and both will be installed.

Download Internet Explorer 9 - Microsoft Windows

Run System Restore to go back before you "fixed" the virus, even if the virus comes back. Then use MalwareByte's Anti-Malware to remove it.

Impossible after upgrade to SP1.

Are you saying System Restore doesn't work? Or that you installed SP1 after you "fixed" IE?

installed SP1 after I have fixed the problem, firing up VS2010 after a looong time , open project, compile, CRASH, googling -> problem is wrong ieproxy.dll.
replace ieproxy.dll with 32bit backup VS works, - I cannot use the internet browser, Leave it as it is - I cannot develop any applications. ;( please upload nayone his/her copy of ie932bit .

Install SP1 again manually. It replaces just about everything anyway. Short of that, you're going to need to wipe and reload. You can just plop and drop folders and dlls like that.

SP1 does not affect your browser... If you have ie8 you will have ie8 after sp1 upgrade.

edit: Also, I did not do SP1 via Windows Update but just download (~900mb) & install.

How would I do that without any install disc / recovery HDD?

Why can't just anybody upload his IE9 32bti files so I can replace mine with theirs ?

Able to install 32bit but not 64bit
So I messed up my laptop, it was Win 7 home 64bit. I formatted it and do a clean install, but I can only install 32bit. When I try to install 64bit, I get "hardware problem and installation could not be complete" what's that?

How do I install Windows 7 64bit instead of 32bit
I have Windows 7 32bit with an upgrade disc (so it only has the 32bit on it) and I would like to put 64bit on. I don't care about my data or programs (they are backed up) but I am wondering where I could get iso images and whether my product key will work.

W7 64bit:Ok to install 32bit programs outside the 32bit programfolder?
OS: Win 7 64bit. Is it generally not a problem to choose to install a piece of 32bit software outside the win 7 default program folder for 32bit software? Or is 32bit software only supposed to be running flawlessly, if installed in that default 32bit folder? Thanks.
