Windows 7: Cannot run IE 9 32 bit on win 7 64 bit PC

Cannot run IE 9 32 bit on win 7 64 bit PC

Hi all--

A few days ago I had a HDD crash but managed to get a tech to recover all data and install a new HDD...he put on Win 7 64 bit and now I have IE 9 64 bit as the default browser...but I want 32 bit as the default...

I created a shortcut to the 32 bit version in C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe but whenever I try to open the 32 bit version I get an error message...

Internet Explorer has stopped working.
A problem has caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

Then the only option is a button to close the program.

I really want to run the 32 bit version as I have an add on that only works on the 32 bit version.

I've tried the upgrade to IE 10 but the 32 bit version of IE 10 won't run either...same error message.

I am logged in as administrator.

Thanks!!

Joe

No luck...I ran the FixIt program but still have the same error message when I try to open IE 32 bit.

You might try turning Internet explorer off and then boot when prompted and turn ie back on ?

But personally I believe the recovery didn't obviously go well and possibly you should look into these reinstall options,
As long as you recovered your Personal files from the old hdd that might be the only good thing which came out of the deal,
Fresh Install options,

Can you run IE with no add-ons, under All programs-accessories-system tools?

As xunile suggested above

Start> In search box type Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)> Enter

Any luck? If no, boot into Safe mode with networking and see if it works there

Safe Mode

If it does work, try a clean start to see if you have a conflict

If nothing helps, post a screenshot of the error message

Hi guys...

I CAN run IE 9 32 bit from All programs-accessories-system tools...works just fine.

Should I still do the clean start?

So Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) works fine? Confirm that is what you see in System Tools? (It is for me) You'd want to disable add-ons to see which is causing your problem.
