Hi there,

I have programs running multiples times, and next some of the program I see *32 ,so am not sure whether this is a malware or virus.

This started 3 days ago and I have malwarebytes and superanti spyware, but still the issue exists, can I get solution for this please? thank you.

Another is being on the firefox, for every website I open I get this below message:

"Your connection is not secure

*32 mean you are running 32bit app in 64bit OS.
It always there, is not something that started 3 days ago

title said programs running multiple time and the detail is about *32, what is the real issue?
What the programs?

I do have 64bit OS Windows 7, what I meant I never used see the *32bit app in task manager.

issue is, for example:
iexpolrer.exe
iexpolrer.exe*32
iexpolrer.exe*32
and so on, so some of the program runs as 64bit, some as 32bit....so it's making my CPU usage more, when same program is running multiple times, so this should be an issue.

Am unable to post the screenshot here.

As I said before *32 been there, you just never notes it
IE have both 64bit and 32bit version, are they just showing up in task manager but not on the task bar?
If you call the program multiple time, it going to run multiple time, close the duplicate

Run any anti virus/malware scan?

Task manager and task bar it is showing up, but there are other programs in which both 64 and 32 bit are running in background.

Yes, I did scan using Malware-Antibytes and Super AntiSpyware, removed the infected files, but still the same issue.

Here is the screenshot of task manager, you seen the number of instances the programmes are open.

And now the firefox is facing issue, error code being: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_MITM_DETECTED

Any solution to remove the malware and get everything under Task manager and Firefox fixed please?
