    Syswow64


    So I got this popup saying that my computer needs to be updated because the version of windows im using is out of date or something. Whenever i try to click on it a command prompt pops up and it says "Syswow64" at the top. Does anyone know how to fix this? Oh and it also pops us when i right click on the speaker icon and click "open sound settings".

    :)

    Select C:\winddows\SysWow64\cmd. exe

    Ah - I see what you mean. The link was in a more recent post found by searching for
    C:\windows\SysWow64\cmd.exe

    so I assumed it was directly relevant.

    As it suggests, but with a change to use what you are seeing in Win 10:

    What happened before this started happening?
    Did you install or uninstall anything?
    Change anything?
    How long has this been happening?

    If it started recently, do you have a suitable System Restore point you could use?

    C:\Windows\SysWow64

    Thanks for the response Dave. I ran the program and thought I was lucky when I found the Adobe Flash updater linked to that. I unchecked it and thought just to be safe, I'd keep looking down the list only to find many, many more including many what looked
    like system files along with others. There are these that are checked also.

    _Wow64 File not found: C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\Wow64.dll

    _Wow64cpu File not found: C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\Wow64cpu.dll

    _Wow64win File not found: C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\Wow64win.dll

    _wowarmhw File not found: C:\WINDOWS\System32\wowarmhw.dll

    _wowarmhw File not found: C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\wowarmhw.dll

    There is one like this that looks valid- _Wow64cpu c:\windows\syswow64\wow64cpu.dll

    With all of the ones I found, I hesitate to disable them without knowing what I'm doing. If an entry says "file not found" and is active, would it be safe to disable those?

    Thanks
