Re: C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe message! Help! Cant open anything!!

1. Put the Windows XP CD ROM disk in the CD ROM drive.
2. Click Start, and then click Run.
3. Type expand X:\i386\rundll32.ex_ c:\windows\system32\rundll32.exe in the Open box, where X is the letter of your CD ROM Drive.
4. Restart the computer.

OR

Find a copy of rundll32.exe in folder c:\windows\system32\dllcache or in c:\windows\servicepackfiles\i386.
If you find this, go ahead and copy rundll32.exe to the system folder c\windows\system32.


OR

rundll32.exe file download - Download / repair / restore corrupt or missing rundll32.exe file

Download the rundll32.exe from there and follow the steps on the page to install it.


Let me know if it worked.


On another note there is a program called VER or Virs Effect Remover that helps fix the damage done by a virus after it has been removed.

You can find it here >> Virus Secure Lab
