OK, try this:

1. Go to program files - not program files (x86)
2. Look for a folder called "Java" or "jre"
3. If it's there, then you have 64 bit java. If it's in program files (x86), then you have 32 bit Java.

I did this, but I dont think it told me what bit my java version is. Sorry if I'm missing something completely obvious. I'm very new at this.

open a command prompt and run the command "java -version"

The third line will tell you what architecture it is built for.
