    Method 1:
    Click Start, then click on Run or Start Search.
    Type msinfo32.exe and then press Enter key.
    Under “System Information“, review the value for the System Type item:
    For 32-bit editions of Windows XP, the value of the System Type item is x86-based PC.
    For 64-bit editions of Windows XP, the value of the System Type item is x64-based PC.
    Method 2:
    Click Start, Run, type sysdm.cpl, and click OK.
    Click the General tab. The operating system information appears as follows:
    For a 64-bit version operating system: Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition Version appears under System.
    For a 32-bit version operating system: Microsoft Windows XP Professional Version appears under System.
    Method 3:
    Click Start, Run, type winmsd.exe, and click OK.
    In the details pane, locate Processor under Item. Note the value.
    If the value that corresponds to processor starts with x86, the computer is running a 32-bit version of the Windows XP operating system.
    If the value that corresponds to processor starts with ia64 or AMD64, the computer is running a 64-bit version of the Windows XP operating system.

    Another way is look on your local drive for a Program Files (x86) folder. A 64bit OS will have both folders:
    Program Files
    Program Files (x86)

    Also, if your running XP Home it's 32bit, as only XP Pro came in both versions.
    (I know your running Pro, this is just other info)

    Here's some more info. I loaded it in VMWare and took some screen shots.

    At boot


    System Properties - right click on My Computer>Select Properties or Control Panel>System


    The Folders - My Computer>Local Disk (usually C)


    System Information - Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Information
