install 32-bit IE8 on preinstalled W7 64-bit

Specs: Windows 7
Some websites do not work in 64 bit. I have purchased a laptop with 64 bit Windows 7 and can not run certain websites, like radio station streaming. Adobe Flash 10 players are also not available in 64 bit. I would like to add a 32 bit internet explorer option so I can use sites run by flash and other 32 bit applications

You don't need to install anything. You already have two (2) versions of Internet Explorer 8 (IE8), IE8 64-bit and IE8 32-bit. In windows 7, IE8 64-bit is the default.

The executable for IE8 32-bit is located here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

The executable for IE8 64-bit is located here:
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

Navigate to the folder to launch 32-bit IE8.
