The terms 32-bit and 64-bit refer to the way a computer's processor (also called a CPU), handles information. The 64-bit version of Windows handles large amounts of random access memory (RAM) more effectively than a 32-bit system.

If your processor supports 64-bit, you can get either Windows 7 version.
my laptop is a 32 bit, so do i NEED to get windows7 in 32bit? or can i get 64?

No, but you can run 32-bit programs on 64-bit Windows version.
can i run programs that are for a 64 bit computer? even if i have a 32 bit?
No, you can upgrade from 32-bit Vista to 32-bit Windows 7.
if i want the 32 bit, do i have to compleatly erase everything?
