Check if you are running a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows operating system

Microsoft Windows operating systems run on either 32-bit or 64-bit versions, and many programs have corresponding 32-bit and 64-bit versions to run on either of these. Before you can determine which version of our product you should download, you need to know whether you are running a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system.

Note for Windows XP Users:
On April 8th, 2014, Microsoft formally announced the Windows XP end of support. Because Microsoft no longer fixes issues on Windows XP, it has become increasingly difficult for Trend Micro to keep users safe on this operating system. While our internet security products can be installed on Windows XP, we encourage all of our users to upgrade their PCs to a more modern operating system which will provide greater stability and security.
