Does anybody know how I can find out my computer's L2 cache and the system BUS?

Go to http://www.lavalys.com/products/download.php?pid=1&lang=en&pageid=3 and download Everest Home Edition. It will tell you from A-Z and from 0 to the infinite about your system. Its a very nice tool for everyone who wants to know more deeple what is in their PC's.

What type of computer first of all...

On my Dell laptop theres an access panel on the bottom that you unscrew a screw and the cover pops off. I assume other laptops are similar... If it's desktop you'll have to pull the cover off the tower and find them.

It's a desktop computer. I don't want to open it, I'm looking more to check in the software. I can't find anything in the Control Panel that helps so I wonder if there's anything else I haven't checked, without downloading any more programs.

It is not Microsoft's desire to let people know what's running inside their computer through Windows. This is why other utilities are out there for. Otherwise, there would be no reason for them, and you would had found out what you're looking for very easy.

Nice tool, the Belarc Advisor. But I still find Everet Home Edition to be a more complete and throught application, that will let you know even more detail information of each and every component on your system (which explains the difference in download file sizes).

Regardless. Belarc is a very nice quick tool.
