32bit on 64bit

Running 64bit IE and having problems accessing some sites.
Flashplayer refusing to install seems to be one problem. Another problem is IE freezing, don't know if the two are related.
How do I run a 32bit version of IE on a Vista system?
I remember reading somewhere that this is possible but cannot remember where.
Have trawled a few other sites with little luck finding any advice.
Cheers

I think I understand your question.

You have a 64bit version of Vista and you now wish to use a 32bit version.

My understanding is you will need a new licence key for the 32bit version and do a clean install to get the new OS onto your machine.

Thanks for the help. Nothing is as simple as you first imagine it should!

The XP 64 bit version has both IE32 and 64, I assume thats not the case with Vista but maybe worth checking. Your right about flash player, there doesnt seem to be a 64 bit version.

Is there not a flash wrapper for 64 bit windows like they have with linux?
