My version of Windows XP - how many bits?

  goforit 18:25 08 Jul 2008

I have been advised to download a new driver for my printer but the downloads specify 32-bit or 64-bit.

I have windows XP pro and I think I now have SP3. How do I find out how many bits I have?

don't know whether it's same in xp as vista but if it is try control panel-system

Many thanks smackheadz, mrwoowoo and Sea Urchin. You were all correct.

But Sea Urchin gave that link which provided that vital bit of info on how to distinguish between 32-bit and 64-bit i.e. 64-bit says so on the system page under the general tab whereas the 32-bit just gives the year. Mine is 32-bit.

And thanks for the quick response.
