32 or 64 bit

Hi, Ray, have you tried System Properties? Press the Windows and Pause/Break keys at the same time. System Properties should come up with the General Tab at the top, look for the computer spec towards the bottom of that tab. In my case it specifies "AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor"

Hope this helps.

32 or 64 bit

Right click on My Computer and select properties. It will tell you what processor you have. If it is not clear then post what it says.

If this is your PC then it uses a 32bit P4 or Celeron processor.

32 or 64 bit

Don't forget that it's entirely possible to run a 32-bit operating system on a 64-bit system, and even if you have a 64-bit processor your operating system is most likely still 32-bit (Windows XP 64-bit and Windows Vista 64-bit haven't really taken off as yet due to compatability issues).

This is what it says on the info page and by what you have said,it seems to be a 32 bit processor.
