    It's really kind of wierd because I can install 32-bit operating systems and 64-bit operating systems.
    Games are still slow on this proccessor + computer because in the past my laptop has been overheating and shutting down alot.
    This is also caused because I didn't clean my fan and my parents won't let me clean it.
    So that's basically it.
    Wait is Windows 7 Activated R2 OK to install?

    x32 = x86-32
    x64 = x86-64


    Yes. A 64-bit processor can run 32-bit software, but not the opposite ofc.

    Is that some pre-activated stuff? I guess it's ok if you really want, but a clean ISO and Daz loader is the best IMO.
