    Win32

    When shutting down the laptop, I sometimes get a message that Win32 is still running and do I want to shut it down to shut down my computer. I always say "yes." But what is Win32? What is it doing?

    Are you sure it's not a virus? Win32 is typically used to refer to the family of operating systems that are made up of Windows 95 and up.

    Probably not a virus (virus software updated regularly). Our company is still using Win 95 built as a 16 bit application no less (scheduled to go to Win 2000 sometime this year).
