Hi all

I did some tests installing the Avast! 4 server antivirus and the NOD32
one on a windows 2003 x64 OS (EMT64 Xeon).
Both softwares are 64-bit compatible, they say.
But if I go into task manager I can see that antivirus processes are
always *32, i.e. they are 32 bit process.
Why?

Are you seeing an actual problem?

Because the actual processes that NOD32 uses are 32-bit. This is normal for
their application.
