Hi,

Seth is correct, VirtualPC is very old technology and does not support 64-bit VMs so there is no "option" to turn it on. Your only options are:

install a new OS - Windows 8/2008R2/2012   - to get new Hypervisor - all of which support 64-bit
install Virtualbox (https://www.virtualbox.org/) which is free despite Oracle acquiring it
install vmware workstation (on your existing OS)
