Running a 64-bit version of your operating system has a lot of benefits. Most importantly, your computer can process data in 64-bit chunks, rather than the traditional 32-bit, leading to performance improvements. In order to take advantage of your more-efficient software, you need to get 64-bit versions of your programs (assuming they exist; not all developers support 64-bit processing).

If you're running a 64-bit version of Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, or Windows Vista, the standard version of iTunes that you download from Apple's site won't give you the benefits you want.

Standard iTunes is 32 bit. You need to download the 64-bit version.

Here are links to some of the recent 64-bit versions of iTunes, sorted by operating system compatibility.
