You need to re-install Windows with a 64-bit version of Windows Vista.

Good. 64 bit operating systems can handle like over a TB of RAM haha.

Current CPUs don't though. The actual memory address space in AMD64 is something like 56-bit, and on EMT64 (intel) it is 48-bit. I may have those numbers off a little, but they are close. So you will only be "limited" to a couple hundred gigabytes of RAM in a real life scenario.

Haha, or only what the motherboard can handle/support. I was just saying that the 64-bit OS's can take a ridiculous amount of RAM

Format your HD. Install a clean x64bit OS in your HD and everything will be Superb.

+1 you cannot upgrade to x64. You can however use the same programs in most cases if you have them saved to a different parititon but not many people do that. x64 has a 32bit emulator i believe that allows x86 apps to run in the 64bit OS.
