  1. I have the home edition, I can't seem to find if it is 32-bit or 64-bit.
    It is service pack 3.
    I tried google but all the methods mentioned gave info which excluded any info about 64 or 32 bit.

    Correct me if I'm wrong Home edition is 32 bit as you said however if its not...just go to "My Computer > Properties"

    if its 64 bit it'll tell you in the description, if it shows nothing then it should be 32 bit.

    Run winver. It will tell you a bunch of stuff about Windows Vista. Including 32 or 64 bit.

    Slight problem there. Winver screen descibes the OS and it's patch level but says nothing about 32-bit or 64-bit. My guess is it does say so if it is 64-bit, but not otherwise.

    BTW xasnxryux the OP said nothing about Vista/XP,Win 7 but since he refers to SP3, it must be XP ?

    Windows XP Home was only ever 32bit.

    Windows XP Professional was available as either 32bit or 64bit.

    Oops. You actually click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties. If you see x64bit (or something like that) you're running 64bit. If you don't it's 32bit.
