I just noticed this process, wowexec.exe in task mngr.
It makes me wonder because there is a space in front of it and most of the other columns for it are blank.
I scanned with Norton and Malwarebytes, found nothing.
Is this a bug or something?

wowexec.exe is a part the operating system, and supports the use of 16-bit processes within Windows NT, 2000, XP and later version of Windows. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.

If you want a second opinion, you can submit the file to Jotti or VirusTotal.
