Internet Explorer 8 for Windows 7 is not available for download.

Original Title: Internet Explorer 8

I went to the Internet 8 download page to download Internet Explorer 8 and reinstall it but found out there was no download for my operating system which is Windows 7 64 bit. I guess Internet explorer 8 is not supported anymore on the Windows 7 platform. It came with the windows 7 install disk but the 32 bit version crashes immediatly with no solutions. There is NO download for my version of windows. Here is the download sitehttp://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/support/system-requirements.aspx Why isn't Windows 7 listed?
