MS Office 2013 - 64 bit or 32 bit version

Last Modified: 2014-08-25
I have a destop PC that is 64 bit Gateway (Acer) PC. I am using MS Office 2013 on the Windows 7 operating system. Recently I had a virus on my PC and McAfee Tech Support removed the virus, cleaned up my PC and installed the 32 bit version of MS Office 2013.

Question: Should they have installed the 64 bit version of MS Office 2013 or did they do it correctly by installing the 32 bit version of MS Office 2013?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Everyone is in agreement that the 32 bit office version is the best to install ,   Since everyone agrees with this information and everyone provided a little additional information which increased my under standing of the difference in installing 32 bit vs 64 bit, I have split the points across everyone.

Thank you fot your assistance.
