It varies, dependent on the hardware in the computer. There are thousands though. As an example, the system I'm currently on is running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit with all updates applied and in Windows Explorer when I right click the Windows folder and select Properties, it states 124,165 files totaling 49.3GB ... and that is just the Windows folder.
