    Can anyone help, all I am getting are messages that state adobe flash player
    is not compatable with 64 bit change your browser to 32 bit. I go to the
    exporer site and it tells me I already have explorer 8 downloaded and when i
    check the available downloads none are for Windows 7.
    I've checked programme files and unlike explorer 7 there is not a 32 & 64
    bit download

    Internet Explorer 8 should have come with Windows 7 (supposedly
    preinstalled). If it is preinstalled, check the following location for the
    32-bit version:

    C:/Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

    And for the 64-bit version:

    C:/Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

    If it is not preinstalled and there is not download for Windows 7, I would
    use the one for Windows Vista, since Windows 7 is based on Windows Vista.
    Hopefully this helps.

    It is pre-installed. On 64-bit Windows both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions
    are installed.

    It doesn't matter if you download IE8 for Vista - it won't install on
    Windows 7.

    Do you have your original Windows 7 CD? You may need to get Internet
    Explorer 8 from that.
