I think it has something to do with adobe because when I open task manager there is two task open called FlashPlayerPlugin_16_0_0_305.exe *32. When I open the task manager I also have a lot of programs with .32* exe on them, what does this mean? I'm not very knowledgeable with computer stuff so bare with me please.
FlashPlayerPlugin_16_0_0_305.exe is part of Adobe Shockwave Flash. The current version is 22.214.171.124 so you need to update.
Processes that end with *32
are 32-bit applications running under WOW on a 64-bit OS. WOW64 allows 32-bit Windows-based applications to run on 64-bit Windows...see Running 32-bit Applications
Microsoft created the folder named SysWOW64
for storing 32-bit .dll files. WOW64
equates to "Windows 32-bit on Windows 64-bit". This folder contains all the 32-bit .dll files required for compatibility which run on top of the 64-bit version of Windows. WOW64 is the x86 emulator
that allows 32-bit Windows-based applications to run on 64-bit Windows but x86 applications are re-directed to the x86 \syswow64 when seeking the x64 \system32. The C:\Windows\System32 folder still exists in the 64-bit version of Windows but it is used as a repository for 64-bit .dll files.
