I'm hoping this is an easy question to answer. am trying to uninstall AVG internet security from my windows XP machine. they sent me two remover files and I'm to choose one or the other depending on whether I have a 32 bit window or a 64 bit window. can someone please tell me how I find that information? I have no clue.

many thanks.

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. Type sysdm.cpl, and then click OK.
3. Click the General tab. The operating system is displayed as follows:
* For a 64-bit version operating system: Windows XP Professional x64 Edition Version < Year> appears under System.
* For a 32-bit version operating system: Windows XP Professional Version <Year> appears under System.
Note <Year> is a placeholder for a year.

ok, so if it doesn't have the "64" in the version name then I have the 32 bit version yes?
