It is the 32 bit Windows 7 version that came installed with the computer when I bought it.

would you know if it's the 32 bit win 7 or 
the 64 bit?  I think under settings, system, might say. I could use the 64 
bit for editing, but 32 bit worked better in Vista with programs
don't ask me the difference from tech view, 
that's as far as my knowledge of OS goes.
