Hello aleksey.fomin,

You cannot go wrong with either, as both the 32-bit and the 64-bit version will work on Windows Server 2012 R2. To install and configure ClamAV, simply follow the instructions as described in the following article: http://vamsoft.com/support/docs/articles/using-clamav-with-ORF-part-1

When 64 bit processors compatible with the x86 architecture were introduced, they were referred to as x86-64. x86-32 (and x86-16) were used for the 32 (and 16) bit versions. This was eventually shortened to x64 for 64 bit and x86 alone refers to a 32 bit processor. The 32 bit processors are designed to handle a limited amount of physical memory maximum of 4GB but 64 bit can handle high memory utilizing 8,16 and some even32 GB. On a 64-bit Windows you can use either version. On a 32-bit Windows you should use only x86 obviously.
