Windows 7: Strange Task Manager Process Names

Strange Task Manager Process Names

I have Windows 7 64 bit OS. However, under task manager the processes are showing: iexplore.exe*32, itumes.exe*32, etc. I've never seen this before. My computer is running slower, and has frozen a few times since I first saw this. Don't know if this could be causing a problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome
Those process were always there, they are used when 64 bit cannot be used.
To test for the slowness, try a clean boot to diagnose.

Here are my solutions to freezing, and an excellent article, which I hope is of some help
Go to search type device manager and look for any yellow warning markers
Download and run malwarebytes, a full scan after you update
Run antivirus scan
Check memory with memtest86
Make sure that you are not over heating.
Try in safe mode; report back if it works properly.
Try a clean boot
Make sure PSU is working properly
If overclocking, restore to original
Test hard drive at company website.
Test in safe mode, does it still happen?
Try with clean boot..

The "*32" means the process is 32bit those without a "*32" are 64bit.

Thanks for the replies. Still puzzled why I haven't seen this before. I've had the computer for over two years, and this showed up 2 weeks ago.

You weren't paying attention? I don't know. The 64bit versions of Windows have always had "*32" after 32bit processes.
