what is .exe*32

The following exe files have *32 at the end.


Why are these showing like this in my taskmanager when they never did before, and what does this *32 mean?

✔ Best Answer
You're running 32-bit apps on 64-bit Windows. Nothing to worry about other than you're running Google Toolbar, is that by choice?

I never installed it and have no idea how it got there.

If you do not want it then uninstall it (or at least disable it in your browser's add ons). Other than that, you appear to have no problems.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

If there are any other Toolbars then it is best to uninstall all of them - there are generally undesirable and some can cause issues.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
