No. It would only be a 32-bit system if it had a 32-bit kernel; 32-bit programs; 32-bit libraries (DLL's); and 32-bit drivers. That's pretty much the entire OS. To replace all that wouldn't be much different from reinstalling the OS. In fact, since there are no existing tools for it, it would take longer to do so than to reinstall.

I deleted the the C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath entry and replaced it with C:\Program ...


First up, make sure that your processor is 64-bit. You can figure that out with Speccy and/or Google. (If your machine isn't 64-bit, you'll never be able to run a 64-bit OS.) Go to the Microsoft Software Recovery page. Enter your 64-bit Windows 7 product key and fill out any other forms it throws at you. It'll download an ISO file, which is the image of the ...
