    I think it's My Computer(right-click) -> Properties -> 'Hardware' tab.

    Where can I find the architecture in the "System Properties" window?

    It just says
    "Dell Latitude D620
    Genuine Intel (R) CPU
    T2400 @ 1.83 GHz"
    and some other stuff.

    I am looking for the architecture.

    The only way I know of finding out your processors architecture is googling (insert CPU here) architecture. I really couldn't think of an easier way either, as far as I know there isn't a way to look at your CPU architecture via your operating system.

    Not sure what you're looking for, but maybe cpu-z would be helpful. It reads your processors technology, general specifications, instructions, cache amount, ext. It also displays your motherboard model and bios version along with your memory manufacturer, type, voltage and timings. I literally use it on a daily basis.
