GMER - Dumb or infected

Hello,
I have a question for you Gentlemen. This morning I downloaded GMER, and went to run it and got what looked like a windows error message. Am I doing something wrong or am I compromised. Thanks very much for any help. I have run SAS and MAMB. Haven't run anything in safe mode yet.

GMER runs on Windows NT/W2K/XP/VISTA

Might not also support a 64bit environment.

Thank you Gentlemen for your time and help. I've tried to install it 5 times, even changing the name before extracting to something completely off the wall, and I get that message. You may be right about it not liking 64 bit. I got the feeling that this program was like a real dig deep and find everything kind of program, like computer wise people would use. I may be wrong. Are there any really strong antimalware, rootkit, spyware programs or are they all seperate? Thanks again.

That is correct, it does not support X64.

Glenn, are you having problems or did you just want to confirm that your machine wasn't infected?

Hello Anak,
I don't believe I have a specific problem. It was just when GMER wouldn't install, I thought it might be blocked. Now that I know it doesn't run on 64 bit I am at ease.
Thanks for all who participated.

OK. I have downloaded it to my Windows 7 64-bit installation. I get the same message when I try to run it. What you need to do is the following:

Click OK (1) on the error message. Next, click Scan (2). Another error message appears. Click on OK (3) on this message. Your system will now be scanned (4).

Cheers Dwarf,
I didn't mean for anyone to go to that much trouble, so thanks for the assist. Have you used the program before, is it worth the install. Sure looks a little intimidating.
Might give it a try, the main point that some malware wasn't blocking it's install is what had me mostly concerned.
