Windows 7: Double programs in task bar. HELP

Double programs in task bar. HELP

I have installed VUZE, and when i click on the icon in the taskbar, instead of opening up in the same square, it opens next to it, meaning 2 of the icon are present in the taskbar.

Anyway to fix this?

When that happens, remove the original pinned shortcut, then right click on the opened application's icon and then pin it.

Does this happen only with Vuze or with other shortcuts on the task-bar?

*32 by some programs in Task Manager
I saw this for the first time today. At first I panicked and thought I had a virus, but now I figure this is probably due to that recent massive security upgrade MS sent out on Wednesday. Some of my programs have a *32 just to the right of them. I'm going to guess that it's to distinguish 32-bit...
