    The other night on of the fans started to run really loud and the computer has been running really crappy lately. I was trying to close a frozen program and I noticed most of the processes are *32. I have noticed on or two maybe in the past but now more than half of the programs are running in 32 bit mode. Is my processor on its last legs? I have tried running several different Hardware checking programs but I keep getting this is not a valid 32 bit program?

    Please advise.

    Thank you,
    Luke

    I broke out the compressed air and it helped with the speed of the applications but they are almost all running in 32 bit processes still. Tried a system restore for the fun of it but no changes.

    Most programs are still 32 bit, but such a failure would be unheard off anyway. Temps are a tad high if thats at idle, what do they go to under heavy load?

    Have you tested the RAM? Or the hard drive? Those two are fail more commonly, UBCD has Memtest86+ and hard drive diagnostics for most drives on it; test both with that.

    Also have you checked for viruses and malware?
