It tells me that it is not supported in my operating system. Where would I find the program files like you listed? Any ideas are welcome. Thanks

there is no way to just "get rid of it" and still have Explorer working properly...IE8 is integrated into Windows, even after disabling IE8 in Programs and Features...its core is till active and working

Ok to be honest with you I am not sure how I deleted it. I mean the 64-bit is still there. When I saw I had two internet explorer's I decided to delete one of them not knowing I needed the 32-bit. I dont know where to find that program file.

Did you just delete the shortcut fro the Start menu, or did you go to,

C:\Program Files (x86)\

and delete the Internet Explorer folder found there? If all you did was delete the shortcut go to where Zidane24 said and make a new shortcut for it.

Ok I can do that. I had thought of that but the only problem was that I deleted it probably two months ago. So if I restored it I would lose everything I have done since then correct? thanks

Ok i really would not like to do that but I may have to I guess. When going to the program files there is an iexplore file and when I click on it IE opens but it still tells me im running 64-bit.
