How do I tell if I have Java 32 bit or 64 bit installed in Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit?

Due to a problem with Java updates I had to uninstall the said program. I downloaded what I thought was a 64 bit version from their site, but now in the control panel beside the Java emblem it reads (32-bit) How do I tell if I mistakenly downloaded the 32 bit version or the 64 bit one? I have both the 32 and 64 bit versions of IE on my machine, but have both program versions toggled off so they won't boot. I use Google Chrome as my browser and Hotmail for e-mail. (Looking at the files they all seem correct to me as both 32 and 64 bit) Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Peace!

I realize this question has been answered, but here's some additional info for future visitors:

  • Go to the command prompt
  • Type "java -version" and press enter
  • If you are running Java 64-bit the output should include "64-Bit"

Keep in mind that you may have multiple versions of Java installed on your system. I have 3, e.g.:

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\java
  • C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\java
  • C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_51\bin

So while my default version of Java is 32-bit, I also have a 64-bit version of Java installed.
