I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

i thought syswow64 was a windows folder???
Run5kCommented:
Yes, that is typically a default Windows sub-folder that's located here:

C:\Windows\SysWOW64

However, it certainly wouldn't be surprising to hear of malware that tried to utilize the same name.
Run5kCommented:
That being said, it seems much more likely that malware would try to copy its malicious payload into the SysWOW64 folder, just as it would the System32 folder on an x86 machine.
