If you really have doubt and can't make sure your PC run a 64bit OS, go ahead and download any 64bit Linux distro with Live CD. Create a bootable USB and boot into Linux live CD. If it runs and you can use applications in it without installing then proved that it can run 64bit OS. 32bit processors can't support 64bit OS and system will fail within minutes. I made that mistake when I was a kid. You can try and verify by using Linux Live CD 😊

User vm42017-06-03
32bit programs will work just fine on a 64bit OS. Don't worry about running your current applications after installing 64bit Here is why 64bit OS should work as good as 32bit: 1. As Bruce said, your motherboard and CPU detected 8gb ram but OS couldn't register them all since OS is 32bit. 2. Intel official page indicates that it is a 64bit OS.
Uv
User vm42017-06-03
You can install 64bit OS. Your CPU was meant to run 64bit OS. You can still run 32bit OS if you want to (and you are running a 32bit OS) because 64bit CPUs are backward compatible.

Perimeter firewall needs to block UDP 137 & 138 as well as TCP 137, 139 & 445. If not relying on legacy systems, completely remove NetBIOS, IPX/SFX, and NBF protocols. Disable SMB v1 on all systems. Instructions are available on MS website.

Here's some tips I have preventing​ WannaCry and what to do if you are affected: HOW TO BE SAFE: 1. Block ports 135 and 445 from your router's firewall. 2. Update all your PC's. I recommend you use Windows 10 as research says Win 10 is not affected by Wcry. If your using XP or Vista, Microsoft has offered security patches for you too. 3. Install an Antivirus. Also Update Antivirus Definitions. 4. Backup all your data, so that even if WannaCry affects, you don't need to cry😉 IF YOU ARE AFFECTED: 1. Do not pay the ransomware. It only encourages the hackers. 2. Good News: Many Antivirus Companies are working on a way to decrypt your data without paying😃 Hope this helps🙂

Thanks Bruce, defaulting to viruses is a common mistake I see people making a lot on here. While there may be a good chance in many cases, I have actually in experience seen that it is more commonly old hardware, bulk up of crap files over the years (and programs), low HDD space, and also dust build up on the vents, fans and CPU heatsinks.

That is not a backup. It is a mass copy which includes a ton (okay - GB) of crap that is beyond useless when restoring. If you are going to perform a backup, use a tool designed for the job that will skip the cruft and only back up the important stuff.

I just want people know this isn't a community of people who are spreading links for grabbing others hard work. There is a reason for me using Linux instead of Win10. I can't afford it. Someone else won't see that hidden post and will ask again. I don't want that happen. And if that happens just forward it. Repetition makes it stick.
