I have laptop with Windows 7 professional 64 bit.

Straight after installation, I removed all software I was not going to use, including Internet Explorer.

Now I need to use IE, and what's more - I need to use IE in 32bit version.

I did download IE 9.0 32 bit for windows 7 installer, but when trying to install it, I get window with:

Wrong version of Internet Explorer installer
This version of setup doesn't support your Windows system type (32-bit/64-bit).

It could be that I removed some things that now cause the problem. What can I do now, to get the 32bit IE?

Why would you do that? I think the proper title would be "How to remove IE from my laptop?" –  Nidzaaaa Jan 17 '13 at 14:06
The 32-bit version of Internet Explorer is already installed by default on all versions of Windows. If you removed Internet Explorer all you need to do is install Internet Explorer. –  Ramhound Jan 17 '13 at 15:09

Download the 64 Bit version of IE 9 and install it. After install, look at your All Programs menu and you'll see right under Internet Explorer (64-bit), "Internet Explorer" That is the 32-bit version. It installs alongside the 64bit version

Install internet explorer from microsoft website, install it and "Run" this:

%systemdrive%\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
