32 or 64 bit OS? - 32 or 64 bit CPU?

You bought your computer, Windows pre-installed and you are not sure whether your have Win 7 32 bit or Win 7 64 bit.

You don't know if your computer is capable of running 64 bit Windows or
you don't know if your computer has hardware to support virtualization or
you don't know if your computer has hardware to protect your data.

The answer to the first is straight Win 7.
The second one uses a very small program from Gibson Research Corporation.

Thanks for the thought. I was going to a rep a chap the other day and then I realized that I'd only done that a couple of days previous. I understand the reasoning between the time between "attaboys" but one does like to show ones appreciation. Oh well, we can't have our cake and eat it too.
Thanks,
