32-bit Internet Explorer is not working but 64-bit does.
Already tried switching from IE8 to IE9 and back,
reseting IE defaults, unistalled the network driver and reinstalled it
but nothing seems to work.

Any clues?

Try to run (from Program Files (X86), Internet Explorer, iexplore -extoff. This will run Internet Explorer with no add-ins.

Does it start?  If not, what does it actually appear to do?

It's probably an add-on that's causing it not to load.

Press Windows+R (the Windows key and R simultaneously) then clear out what's in the box.  Copy and paste the following in and click OK.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe -extoff

Open in new window


If it loads fine, open up the Internet Options via Tools-->Internet Options, and look for "Manage Add-ons".  Disable all of the add-ons, and open IE normally.  Once you enable the one that is causing it to crash, you'll find that IE won't open normally again.

Thanks for the answers...it was the firewall...blocking her 32 bit IE. But allowing her 64 bit through (and everyone else's 32 bit through).
