Pardon my ignorance, but where do we go to find out which bit we are running?
Thanks

Click the Start Orb , then in search box type: System

In the results, just under the Control Panel category, click "System"

You'll see the answer to your question in the System Type section.

**EDIT think we all 3 answered at the same time All with a slightly different way of getting to the same place too

Another way for the future to tell is by looking at your program files folders.. if you see one called Program Files and one called Program Files (x86).
