I have 2 partitions on my computer a windows 7 32 bit is installed on one and a windows 64 bit is installed on the other. I am unable and need to beable to delete all of the windows7 32 bit system files off my computer because I need the disk space. It is taking up 20gigs and my HDD is small as it is.

i had same problem in this thread that was not able to get resolved. only thing i managed to do was move the paging file but I am not sure if that is actually a good or bad progress towards my goal.

Try the stuff recommended in that thread you linked to.
If you want my short answer, and what I would personally do, backup your stuff and reformat your HDD and just install Windows 7 64-bit fresh. This will probably be the fastest option unless you find something else more quickly.
