Original title: rundll.exe error

Hi all

I have a problem with my file rundll.exe. When you change any personalsettings such as theme, display, screen saver or any of those things I get the warning: "cannot find C:\Windows\system32\rundll32.exe file. Check if you have entered the correct name, and then try again. "(Sorry for any incorrect translation. I have a Dutch version of Windows).

Is there anyone who can help me with this problem? I searched on several forums, but no luck so far.
If it helps, I have Windows Vista Home Premium 32 BIT

Rgds,
Robert

    Try the following to "scrub" your machine HP printing software. This should clean your computer so that you can re - install the printer as if it was never installed previously. Sometimes this solves problems with the driver.

    3 open the Util folder

    4 open the CCC folder

    5. If you have an HP computer, run the L3uninstall.bat. If you have a computer not HP, run the L4uninstall.bat

    6. once the uninstall is complete, restart the computer

    7 run the Accessories\ System Tools Disk Cleanup

    8. download and install the latest version of Adobe flash player

    http://get.Adobe.com/flashplayer/

    9 download drivers and full software features

    Photosmart C7280 Full Feature software (Windows 7)

    10. run the download to reinstall the printer

    If the software has been downloaded and extracted to your system:

    1. type % temp % in the field of race

    2. Locate and open the folder starting with 7z (example: 7zS2356)

    3 open the Util folder

    4 open the CCC folder

    5. If you have an HP computer, run the L3uninstall.bat. If you have a computer not HP, run the L4uninstall.bat

    From: Brock

    Pretty easy fix;

    (1) you must enable "Show the hidden files and folders" in Folder Options View tab. (Instructions to do this are drawn from the research "Help and Support" for "hidden files")

    2) open Explorer and navigate to;

    C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft Games\Chess Titans

    User %%Nom is, of course, your own windows user name

    (3) change ChessTitans.xml; (Right click on the file and select Edit)

    Change X (X is any number of other then 0) to

    Save and close the titans of chess early file in program menu.  It seems that this error occurs when you set the graphics quality on the highest setting allowing the option "smooth edges".
