Looking at buying some software for XP. It only covers 32 bit for xp. How do I determine for cetain if my win xp is 32 or 64 bit please?

A 32bit program will work on a 64bit processor or operating system.

Right click my computer - properties general tab will tell you what system.

Hi Fruit Bat. It's not under the general tab. I too expected to find it there.

Bremner I don't know what the splash screen is.
