64 bit Internet Explorer for Windows 7

I bought my son a new HP laptop - it has IE 8 64 bit version, so I thought I would install on my system. I can't seem to find it on the Microsoft site. I downloaded the Vista 64 version, but it will not install, says wrong operating system.
Does a 64 bit IE 8 exist for Win 7?

Well, now I know why the previous post only had 10 letters. The thread is old.

What an easy questioned that was ignored..
Your PC has both the 32 and 64 bit versions of IE.
Not sure what Microsoft was thinking there, but 64-bit barely works for most websites and add-ons.
Just use the 32-bit version.
