Windows 7: install MSE 32bit on Win7 64 bit???

install MSE 32bit on Win7 64 bit???

Is this possible.

I downloaded microsoft security essentials from the msft site, and when I try to install it on my new Win 7 machine it gives me an error msg that I am trying to install a 32bit download on a 64bit machine.

I couldn't see an option on the msft site for a 64bit download version of MSE...

Any help much appreciated from anyone - am I missing something really simple? (I've tried the troubleshooting compatability options and ticking the "it worked on xp sp3"... but no difference...)
