Application cannon be run in Win32 mode

I have a major problem! I am an advanced computer user that can't solve this one yet... Hopefully you can help. I keep getting the error message, 'application cannon be run in Win32 mode'. I get it whenever I try to launch a program, install a program, use the run command, even when I'm in Safe Mode. My Antivirus and Firewall programs are no longer in my sys tray and they are no longer running. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Shea

    OK. What is the smit fraud fix?



  • too shea Jun 20, 2008

    I downloaded smit fraud fix and I can't open it OR run the exe because it keeps giving me the same error, 'smitfraudFix.exe application cannot be run in Win32 mode.

    I'm getting through the internet through the computer that has the problem. Yes, a chat would be quicker. unfortunately I don't have skype or ANY chat client installed. Also, I CAN'T INSTALL ANY SOFTWARE BECAUSE I KEEP GETTING THE ERROR. Sorry for the all caps but that is a major problem. Can I set up smitfraudfix to a bootable CD on say my laptop then boot into it from my computer that has the problem?

    if you have skype or another program where we can get a "chat setup" this would be quicker, how are you getting to the internet? is it not being affected?

    my email is fixya@whypayforhelp.org, will give you other s/n's there have you checked ms config? for any odd programs starting up or a hijack this log?

I am not sure exactly what you are asking. It is a 32bit OS by default. Certain versions are 64bit, and if you have this version you don't need to buy a new license, Microsoft will ship you the 32bit version on CD if you pay shipping.
