June 7th, 2008, 03:30 PM #1Vista 32 or 64 bit-how do I know?
I am at my parents' home.
I want to install AVG Free 8.0 [whatever the # is]
It says that the Vista operating system is not up-to-date and needs a patch.
Ho do I know if I should download the 32 bit or 64 bit patch?
Thanks for any help
I just saw on an installation disk it is a 32 bit.
Is there any way to see it within the computer if there is a next time?

Thanks, Lostdeviant. Those were the steps I was looking for
32 bit is confirmed (yay I downloaded the right patch).

It was funny, I was at my parents' home and I am not familiar with the Vista operating system. I was grateful for the help
Thanks for the info

If you parents were running 64bit they would be honorary members into the super cool geekdom!

My parents have trouble turning the computer off and on
One problem they have that I couldn't figure out how to stop is: a prompt keeps on appearing on their screen asking if they would like to "Clear the Private Data" of Firefox.
I downloaded & installed the most recent Firefox browser hoping that this problem would be solved, but it wasn't. How do we get rid of the prompt unless we really want to clear the private data? I told my parents to hit "cancel" or the "x" button which makes the prompt go away for a little while but then it re-appears I do not have this problem with Firefox on my XP computer.

Tools -> Options
Always Clear Private Data?
Ask before clearing private data?

If thats the case then they bought the box at a store or through some one like Dell Direct. Wal*Mart ?
For future reference, 90% of those are 32 bit.
Also, a lot of home stuff still won't run on 64 bit yet. So if it was bought by a NON geek/ NON biz type for email & surfing the net, it it also almost certainly 32 bit.
Hope this helps.
