Windows 7: In System drive there are

Windows Seven (7) Ultimate x64
 
 
In System drive there are 2 Program Files [SOLVED]

Hello world!
I have installed win seven but now I have got problem ! I have two Folders named Program Files in C:| (system). First is 'Pliki programów (x86)' (that means Program Files (x86)) and second names just 'Program Files' (without any translation). You can see it on Photo 'sYSTEM.JPG'. These Program Files have both the same content (Windows default files). Their Content is shown on 2 other photos (one per Program Files).

My question is: What can I do to convert these folders to one without losing any program?

You have two folders because you have installed the 64 bit version but not all software is 64 bit
Program Files = 64bit apps
Program Files (x86) = 32 bit apps

That's normal for 64 bit Windows. Normally insallers will place 64 bit programs in the Program Files folder and 32 bit programs will be placed in the Program Files (x86) folder.

What is strange though, on C, there is usually another folder called "Program data" - and that I don't see on your C.
