What causes this error?


Recommended Posts

Last week, I was in the Malware Removal section of the forum with Maniac helping to rid my computer of malware/viruses. I was having this error both before and after the removal process. There are certain programs that when I try to run them, I get an error message:

"The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you are running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need a x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of this program, and then contact the software publisher."

Does this mean that the executable is corrupted, and I need to get a new copy of the software? Or could it mean that there is still malware/viruses/etc. on this computer?

I ran a scan with Malwarebytes Pro, and it turned up clean. I also use Comodo, and that hasn't noticed anything either. Just trying to figure out what my next steps are. Also, sometimes the computer seems to be slowing down, and lagging. When I open Firefox or MS Office, it says the program is not responding for a minute or two before it will let me do anything.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. :)
