Windows 7: 32 bit versions running in 64 bit Windows 7

32 bit versions running in 64 bit Windows 7

Not entirely sure if this is the right forum but hopefully it is. When I recently restarted my laptop I noticed that a lot of my programs are running in 32-bit mode (signified by *32 in task manager), despite the fact I'm running 64-bit Windows (Windows 7 Home Premium if it makes a difference) and I'm fairly sure that the *32 thing was never there before, at least for programs like Firefox and Steam.

I've tried rolling back but it's still occurring. Anyone know what I can do to fix it (if it is indeed an error/problem)?

You must have 32 bit and 64 bit, to ensure that all programs can be run properly. There is nothing that needs fixing.
