Windows 7
Am I Running 32 or 64 Bit?

Asus computer came with W7 installed. It has 8 GB of memory. How can I tell if it's running 32 bit or 64?

Right click on Computer>Properties and it will tell you 32-bit OS or 64-bit OS.

System Type - 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64)

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Go to Control Panel, then click on System. It should tell you under System Type.

If it came with 8 GB of memory it is most likely equipped with 64-bit Windows. But check it out for yourself...

In the start menu right click on Computer and go to Properties. Look for System type, it will say 64 or 32-bit Operating System.

Edit: Wow, you two were quick to post.

He could have just used taskmanager and checked to see if all 8G of memory registered.

Found the the above service was running all the time and I only occasionally use SuperSpyware AntiSpyware as a standalone scan. This is solely as backup check to my Antimalwarebytes Pro. May I stop and disable it, and how would I remove it entirely? Thanks Glenn
