wowexec.exe is a program for running older programs (designed for 16 bit OS's) on the 32 bit Windows software.
On my system, when it runs, it runs under another process and is indented a bit from the one above it.
Generally it will close on it's own and offer no problems - but occasionally it will get "stuck" and you'll have to kill it on your own.
On my system it's found in the C:\Windows\system32 subdirectory. Since you've just noticed this, it wouldn't hurt to perform a full system scan for viruses and spyware. If you'd like, you can use this free online scan for this: http://safety.live.com/
