Most editions of Windows 7 come either in the 32-bit (x86) or the 64-bit (x64) architectures. Due to efficient memory and processor management, a Windows 7 64-bit computer has more resources available to it than a Windows 7 32-bit computer. You can still run 32-bit programs on Windows 7 64-bit without any issues. Windows 7 64-bit even categorises 32-bit programs into a special Programs (x86) folder during installation.
