If you have a 64-bit Windows, you also have IE8 64-bit on the Start Menu.

What symptoms? What problem? I just don't understand what's the issue here? All the processes visible in Task Manager are completely normal, as they should be when running a 64-bit Windows.

There's not a single mysterious process. There's Messenger, Winword, AVG, touchpad service, iTunes, Catalyst etc. All normal, not one suspicious.

It looks you just have all the possible programs and services running. You might consider cleaning your startup a little bit.

That tells only that you are running a 64-bit Windows, with loads of stuff running on the background. When you run a 32-bit application on a 64-bit Windows, Windows shows with *32 that it's a 32-bit process.

Your CPU and RAM usage are high because you have almost all possible software running at the same time.

One more time, short version: According to your screenshot, there's nothing suspicious running on your computer. Every visible process is OK.

Windows 10, Home Clean Install

Hi Again,

I know this only because I use (and like) Malwarebytes. Usually there is one false positive for windows users. If your malware is this one, just set to ignore.

Malwarebytes false positive? - alt.privacy.spyware | Google Groups

Enjoy your computer and run a virus and malware scan at least once a week.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explo­rer\NoActiveDesktopChang es False Positive
