I'm having the same problem. I have the 64 bit version of Vista Home
Premium and cannot install Adobe Flash because I am apparently using the 64
bit version of IE7. How do I switch to the 32 bit version so that I can
install flash? I've seen posts on other websites referring to desktop
shortcuts labeled as 32 and 64 bit. My desktop has only 1 IE shortcut, and
it apparently is to the 64 bit version. I looked in my program (x86) folder,
and there is only 1 version of IE.exe there (I assume it's the 64 bit one.)
Microsoft's website won't let me download the 32 bit version because it knows
that I have a 64 bit system. Any suggestions? As you can doubtless tell,
I'm not much more than a novice (at age 66) with a computer, so I suppose I'm
missing something obvious.
