RE: 32bit v 64bit operating system
This link shows that it's available for support:
This link shows that you're limited to 2 gB of memory:
64 bit Vista can use more than 4 gB of RAM, while 32 bit Vista can't - both
can use 2 gB without any problems.
The Program Files folder is for 64 bit programs, the Program Files (x86) is
for 32 bit programs that are compatible.
32 bit drivers won't operate on a 64 bit system. It would help to know how
you found out that these drivers are 32 bit.
Your D: partition is supposed to be full, so you'll have to turn off
monitoring for that drive in the properties of the drive.
