ie 9 32-bitBut, why on earth would you like to install Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) 32-bit on your Windows 7 64-bit? There are a lot of reasons behind this choice and most of them have got to do with speed. In fact, Internet Explorer 9 32-bit is much faster in comparison to the 64-bit version. Besides, Microsoft itself confirmed such theory by publishing an interesting post on blogs.msdn.com. On such a post, which also contains interesting Q&A about Internet Explorer 9 64-bit version, it is clearly stated that after running SunSpider (a famous benchmark) “32bit IE9 runs script up to 4 times as fast as 64bit IE9 (which itself runs script around 5x as fast as IE8). So, you could end up paying a significant speed penalty when using 64bit IE9 vs using the default 32bit version”. Also, some users prefer to have IE9 32-bit otherwise they won’t be able to download flash player 10 and play flash games. Whatever the reason, I have just found a nice trick which will let you install IE9 default version on Windows 7 64-bit.

The first thing to know is that, when you install Internet Explorer 9 64-bit you also install the 32-bit version. The only thing you will need in order to get the “already-installed” Internet Explorer 9 is the correct path to such version. Here is the easy procedure to apply:

  1. Right-click any empty space of your Windows 7 desktop and from the the menu, choose Shortcut.
  2. Place the following patch in the address field: C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplorer.exe
  3. Follow the easy step-by-step procedure.
