    "In there you can see it "
    Sorry to say I can not. It tells me I am running Windows XP Home 2002 service pack v 3 but although i looked around the various tabs it did not say anything about 64 0r 32.

    I have just realised that my original post was not clear. I meant to ask "How can I tell if my system is X 64 or 32 "

    32-bit or 64-bit (Microsoft labels them as x86 or x64)

    In Xp Pro:
    For a 64-bit version operating system: Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition Version <Year> appears under System.
    For a 32-bit version operating system: Microsoft Windows XP Professional Version <Year> appears under System.

    Start->Run-> msinfo32.exe
    fo more info and clarification ;)
