Going from 64 to 32 and vice versa requires a reinstall of the OS, sorry. But not a format of the drive. That said, back EVERYTHING up before you attempt this.

Why do you want to go to back to 32-bit?

Can't be done without a clean install.
The good news is that you do not require a new product code.

Good question.

I have done this just so I could run civ2.42 on a travelling laptop.
It is a 16 bit dos program that will not run on a 64 bit os.

That said, 64 bit makes sense if you have 4gb of ram or more.

if you've got windows 7 professional, enterprise, or ultimate then just install XP mode.
it provides full XP SP3 x86 compatibility.
