Changing from 64 bit to 32 bit

I am being told I need to change my 64 bit OS to a 32 bit OS. I 'm not sure if this can be done and even it can, wondering if I should even consider doing this.

Changing from X64?
For some reason when I reloaded the OS I choose that option and it seems to be causing issues. Can I change it and go with just the normal one without reformatting? Thanks
