    Hello,
    Recentley i deleated the 34 bit version of what i believed to be either
    internet explorer 7 or 8. Currentley i am using the 64bit version of ie 8. I
    have recently noticed that flash does not work with this web browser. Upon
    going to the flash website, i am told to download the lower version of
    internet explorer 8. How do i do this? I go to the microsoft website and find
    the internet explorer download but it does not allow me to download the
    program. How can i install the 34bit version? Or, more preferably, how do i
    view webpages that require flash in internet explorer 8 64bit?

    Hope this makes sense....and i am running windows 7.

    Thanks!

    May I ask why you purchased a Win7 64-bit computer, K?

    First there is no 34 bit version, there is 32 bit and 64 bit, both of which
    come with Windows 7 64 bit, you cannot install a version of Internet
    Explorer in Windows 7 as it has the latest version already installed. Flash
    does not work with IE 64 bit, if you need to view flash content you need to
    run IE 32 bit.
