32 bit Internet Explorer Help

I have a 64 bit computer and I have IE 64 bit. How can I download IE 32 bit with windows 7 so I can use it until they get Flash player for 64 bit. I searched everywhere but only found 32 bit download for vista not windows 7? Thanks for help. I'm going crazy with this

When you install you should have both automatically
When i installed my 64bit i had two ie8`s on the start menu
I have been told you cannot select 64bit IE as the default browser for some reason so if you run it from quick launch then that should be the 32 bit version

Thanks Pauly but Its weird I have both on my computer with a fresh install but on my moms I just installed theres only the 64 bit IE. Even on mine when I open up both 64 and 32 IE the click "help" and then "about IE" to find out the exact specs, they both appear ro be exactly the same. Do you find that the same on yours also. Thanks Chris

If ther both the same how do you which one is 32 and which is 64 besides what it says in the start menu? I know one says IE 64 bit and the other just says IE and i'm assuming that is the 32 bit one but when I Click on "about IE" on the 64 and then the 32 bit shouldnt they be different? They both say IE 8.0 7600.16385 and Cipher Strength is 256-bit.. So wouldnt that mean that they are both 64 bit? If i'm doing something wrong please let me know but I just dont understand it. Thanks Chris

Every copy of Windows 7 X86 and X64 will have a 32 bit browser, the 64 bit windows 7 disk will have both and they look like this!

Ok Everyone! Thanks for the help. I finally figured it out. For some reason both of my IE's were 32 bit. I got both from the program files. Thanks all... Happy NEW YEAR
