    Two explorer.exe processes in task manager


    It has been a month I happen to see two instances of "Explorer.exe" processes running in Task manager.

    100%x

    One explorer was running from "C:\Windows\"
    other from "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\"

    Properties of both exe reveals same time data and proper ssh values etc.

    Defender also says all is clean no virus or malwares.

    Googling found some illogical answer that one is for 32bit and other 64bit.

    Well I'm certainly not pleased with the answers so decided to ask here.

    :)

    *SOLVED*Where can I get Task Manager for Windows? NOT process Explorer.

    So if you right click on the taskbar you no longer get the option to click on Task Manager as it brings up process Explorer?

    Dual iexplorer processes???

    I would suggest you run process explorer on the machine so you can find out what applications are running.

    process explorer shows you more than just task manager
