does win 7 64 bit install 32 & 64 bit browsers

When you install Win7 64 bit on a new hard drive does it install both 32 & 64 bit IE browsers ?

If not can you just download and install the 32 bit one and use either

You will get both
This is from experience; a new install of Windows 7 and I have both.

32 is included because some programs, like Flash use to be just 32.

It installs Both, check the start menu for "Internet Explorer" & "Internet Explorer (64-bit)"
