Internet Explorer is a web browser that is built into all versions of the Windows operating system. If you're running a version of Windows (either Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7), you've been using the 64-bit version. However, many people don't realise that the 32-bit version of Internet Explorer is also installed on your computer. You can easily switch between both versions using the "Start" menu.
