You clicked on the cpu information there. All cpus seen at this time support 64bit OSs as well as the typical 32bit.
The system information tool is indicating the processor you have sees 64bit capability. That's how to understand the way the tool displays both hardware and software information.
swarfega has a good point there as well about seeing two separate Program Files folders when looking at the root of the C if C drive where the 64bit 7 is installed. Surprizingly even the 32bit applications still see their own folders in the Program Files not Program Files(x86) directories.
