My dad downloaded lots of bloatware and phishing programs... I want to reformat his computer. He has windows 7 32bit ultimate installed. He has the disc for 32 and 64 bit upgrade cds. Can i switch his to the Windows 7 64 bit? If so, how?

Is the motherboard a 64 bit board?

I don't know, I didn't realize there was a difference. How do I look that up?

32 bit operating systems are usually for computers with less than 4gbs of ram. 64 bit systems are usually used on computers that can have more than that. at least thats the easiest way to explain it.

The Windows 7 compatibility wizard (I think that's what it's called) will tell you if your computer can take the 64-bit version.
