This article describes how to determine whether a computer is running a 32-bit version or 64-bit of the Windows operating system. Generally, a computer’s bit count indicates how much data it can process, the speed with which it can process the data, and the maximum memory capacity. In order to optimize the computer’s performance, the bit count of the operating system that is installed on the computer should match the bit count of the computer itself.

This article is intended for a beginning to intermediate computer user. You may find it easier to follow the steps if you print this article first.

Assume that you are running a 32-bit application on a computer that is running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista. You print some photographs in the application. However, the application displays a print properties page, and then the application stops responding (hangs).

For example, this problem occurs when you try to print a photograph in Windows Live Photo Gallery 2009 on a computer that is running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista. However, Windows Live Photo Gallery 2009 stops responding at the following message:

Getting ready to print…
