*32 means that the process is 32 bit application when running on 64 bit machine. this does not mean that this is a virus.

As already mentioned by Anuroopsundd, in a 64 bit system all 32 bit programs would have *32 in them.
I'm running Internet Explorer 32 bit in my 64bit system so in my processes there is --- iexplore.exe*32
