rundll32.exe help please

  Ridleyrider 08:49 19 Feb 04

I'm having problems with my PC. IE is hanging and software doesn't work.

When I reboot I get rundll32.exe errors.

I understand that this is a fundemental part of Windows that is not behaving correctly. It may also be a virus (I am scanning my PC for viruses using my Norton antivirus). I don't think it is a virus though as I had Norton running & it's up to date.

I may have deleted the rundll32.exe file by mistake. Is there any way I can getthis back if I have?

Is there any way of searching my PC to find the file?

Any other help greatly appreciated as the last thing I want to do is backup my PC & reinstall Windows.

Boot into Windows and when your at the desktop insert the XP CD in the Rom. Exit out the XP wizard when it starts, then click on Start>>Run and type SFC /SCANNOW then OK. This will replace any files missing and correct any corrupted files.

Note the space between the SFC and /

Have you got a recovery disc?

if your operating system was pre installed(ie/no windows cd) you will not be prompted to insert the windows cdrom.
