    SysWow64 opens automatically every now and then

    From the last two days, SysWow64 folder automatically opens in the Explorer. Is this due to any driver/startup-program issue or malware ?

    I am using "G Data Total Security" from a long time but this issue started from the last two days.

    Not exactly on every boot. Sometimes after an hour or so.
