Hello Freakie, and welcome to Seven Forums. Thank you.

In the 64-bit Windows 7 and Vista, Microsoft offers a set of 32 bit executables in the SysWOW64 (Windows on Windows) directory of the system for backwards compatibility.

Since you have the 64-bit Windows 7, there would really be no need for yourself to use anything other than the 64 bit executable of taskmgr.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Ahh, I see. Sort of a strange thing to call a folder with 32-bit executables!

Thanks for the quick reply

LOL, yeah it does seem a bit misleading.

Excellent instructions, so long as you follow them to the letter, ie: take your time, read all instructions.

It works perfectly, thank you
