ok, so I think I have a virus but not sure. In my task manger, when I load certain programs i get a *32 behind the program. For example, right now I have firefox.exe *32 , mbam.exe *32 and a few more. I've run Spybot with no results, ran ESET NOD with no results and ran malware bytes with no results. i'm at a loss, please help!

Thanks

Ok I think I found the answer... it means it recognizes the program to run as a 32 bit program. Weird hadn't noticed it in the past. Thanks

Hello,yes,It means that program is emulated to run in 32bit mode using WOW64.

See our quietman7's posts 2 and 4 herefor an explanation.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
