Hello Everyone,

I don't like change. Yes, I have to do it, but I still do not like it. I used the MS Adviser to check my current system. I can go Professional or Ultimate, 32 or 64 bit.

I do not know what 32 bit system or 64 bit system is all about. Would someone please explain the differences between them so I can make the decision of which OS to buy. I will buy the full OS to install, not an upgrade.

Thank You
Castoffpolite

This article should answer any and all questions you have about 32/64-bit Windows 7. :)

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/32-bit-and-64-bit-Windows-frequently-asked-questions

But feel free to ask more questions if need be.

Basically, the gist of it is: if you have a 64-bit processor, and are needing to use 4GB or more of RAM, 64-bit is the way to go. Otherwise, stick with 32-bit.
