    Change a 64-bit browser to a 32-bit browser, or adding a 32-bit browser alongside the 64-bit browser

    I just bought a new desktop computer and can i am not able to install adobe flash player. Does anyone know if it is possible to switch from Internet Explorer 64-bit Internet Explorer 32-bit. It will be much better if you can tell me how to add a 32-bit browser alongside the 64-bit browser. This will help us to get rid of the flash problem. Thank you for your reply.

    The terms 32-bit and 64-bit describes how the processor of a computer (also called central processing unit (CPU)), manages the information. The 32-bit and 64 bit Windows are designed for use with computers equipped with respectively a 32-bit or 64-bit. The 64-bit versions of Windows can seek more memory than 32-bit versions of Windows.

    This limits the time needed to swapping processes in and out of memory by storing some of these processes in the memory (RAM) rather than on the hard drive, which in turn can increase the performance of programs throughout.

    To determine if your computer is running Windows 32 or 64 bit, follow these steps:
    • To open System, click the Start button , Click Control Panel, click System and Maintenance, and then click System.
    • Under System, you can know the type of system.

    To run 64-bit versions of Windows, your computer must be equipped with a 64-bit processor. To take advantage of the additional capacity of memory usage on 64-bit versions of Windows Vista, your computer must be equipped with a memory of at least 4 GB. In addition, you must ensure you have 64-bit drivers for your hardware and your programs will run in a Windows 64-bit. The 32-bit device drivers are not compatible with computers running 64-bit versions of Windows.
