Unable to install skyrim

I tried to install skyrim in both ways, with steam and pol, in both cases I failed, steam simply won't launch it, givin an error if I remind correctly.
Pol started installing steam and told me something like:
[source] Fatal: This package doesn't work on a 64-bit installation
(translated from my language, might be different in english).

I would actually prefer to have it installed via steam so that it can be updated and so that I can manage DLC in a better way, but I'd accept anything. 
Any suggestion?

Remove the virtual disk and retry; The installer explicitly creates a 32 bits virtual disk, so something has gone wrong (?) and it cannot fix itself until you manually remove the virtual disk.

Dumb question but... How do I remove the virtual disk?

Oh, thought I had to use the shell, thanks.
