Am I running 32 bit IE7 ??
Most posts that I can find say that Vista installed both 32- and 64-bit versions of IE7, but defaults to 32-bit when used. How can I determine if my system is running the 32 bit version of IE or the 64 bit version of IE?

IF I am running the 64 bit version by default, how do I turn on the 32 bit version of IE. I have gone the C/Program files (x86)/Windows/Internet Explorer and clicked on the executable icon.

But after doing that, things that need Flash player still do not work and Flash will not let me download, because it says it is not compatible with the 64 bit browser ????

Re: Am I running 32 bit IE7 ??
You can find out which version of IE7 you are running by opening your browser, clicking on "help" (question mark icon, top right) then "about Internet Explorer. If you're using 64-bit version it will say "64-bit edition".

If you can run the 34-bit version using the executable file in the Program Files (x86) folder, which you mentioned, you should be able to download and use Flash with it.

(note: an "Internet Explorer (64-bit)" icon should show up in your Start menu...any other icon that says "Internet" or "Internet Explorer" on your Start menu should open the 32-bit version of IE7)

I can't help much more because I'm having problems getting the 32-bit version to work at all. 64-bit version works fine, which doesn't do me any good with the applications that I want to run.
