    Hit your start menu, highlight computer, rightclick on computer and hit properties and it should be beside operating system or something similar, i think your running 32 bit, this little trick should help more

    tried that. not there. looked in control panel>display> colors are set to 32 with no option to change to 64, so i am guessing im at 32 bits.

    try this on last thing
    Click Start>Run>Type sysdm.cpl>Click Ok>Click the General tab>Look at the operating system. If the operating system has an x64 in it, then you are running a 64-bit version. If you do NOT see this, you are running the 32-bit version.

    To see if your computer is running 32-bit or 64-bit Windows, do the following:
    1. Open System by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking System.
    2.Under System, you can view the system type.

    Shane that trick works only for Vista, for XP Stiefler's suggestion is the easier to way go because XP does not have the same folders you show in your screenshot.

    Moe just follow Stieflers advise above. That one is tailored for the XP user. I confirmed it works on mine.

    How to check whether windows XP installed on your PC/system is a 32-bit or 64-bit version (x86 or x64)?
    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.
