My computer is 64-Bit, but programfiles says (x86)?

So tittle says it all.

thats normal i have same thing, i setup an x64 win7 operating system and in my system partition it said program files x86.
maybe its normal and maybe cuz its not illegal copy of windows.
but who cares
i think ur pc works fine :D

You should have two folders?
Program Files, and program Files (x86) The one (x86) is for legacy 32Bit programs, which are automatically installed, the other is for newer 64Bit programs.

Thanks for resolving the problem :)
