  1. Hi, I have a 2 month old HP Pavillion with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. I just downloaded Malwarebytes from the recommended link and received the following file: mbam-setup-1.61.0.1400.exe When I try to install it, after providing Admin access, I'm asked to select a destination location. It's defaulting to C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware My question is why is it asking to install to a directory named x86 if it's supposed to be a 64-bit install? Doesn't x86 reference 32-bit architecture? The reason this caught my eye is because recently, in Task Manager, I've noticed that a lot of processes are now running with a *32 after their name. This was not the case when I first started using the machine. But now, the overwhelming majority of processes have that *32 after them. For example: chrome.exe *32 SkyDrive.exe *32 AvastUI.exe *32 rundll32.exe *32 hpsysdrv.exe *32 Is there anything I need to do or is there a different file to download to ensure that Malwarebytes will run as a 64-bit application? Thanks, Buck
