Start...Run...type in "sysdm.cpl" (without the quotes) and press Enter
If it doesn't say 64 bit, then you've got 32 bit.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

You can also open the "Control Panel", double-click the "System" icon, and on a certain Tab (perhaps the default Tab opened) it should tell you about the processor and memory on your computer.

Most XP installed is the 32 bit version. You can get 64 bit OEM version from Newegg.com, but it's not guaranteed that you can find all the necessary drivers for your hardware and that all you software would work under 64 bit XP.

Thanks, could not find a 64 anywhere so I must be a 32.
