Why is ccsvchst*32 running on a 64-bit Vista PC?

I installed the unmanaged SEP 12.1 unmanaged client on a laptop with a CD. I ran the typical install from the CD. When going into Task Manager I see ccsvchst*32 running. The operating system that it is using is Vista Home Premium SP2 64-bit.  Shouldn't there be a 64-bit version?

I noticed a SEPx64 directory on the CD. Should I be running the install from there?  I uninstalled SEP thinking that I did it wrong.  Is there a way to tell if the 64-bit version of the product is running?

Thanks,

When you have a 64 bit machine the process will show up as *32. This tells you that the machine is 64 bit which uses the right file. As said in above comment, this is absolutely normal.
