  • you want to reinstall C:\windows\system32\rundl32.exe which was deleted by mistake?

    By mistake I deleted the program microsoft C:\windows\system\rundl32.exe from my laptop. Because of this I can't add or delete any program.

    Could you please help me reinstall the program above of microsoft?

    Because the file of rundll32.exe is supported by the Windows File Protection, should be an extra effort to remove it (unless you are in Mode without failure).

    If it never happens "missing" (even if you remove it on purpose) PAM should quickly and quietly replace it using the backup copy in the dllcache folder, and record an event like this in the case where the system log viewer:

    Event type: Information
    Event source: Windows File Protection
    Event category: no
    Event ID: 64002
    File replacement was attempted on the protected system file c:\windows\system32\rundll32.exe. This file was restored to the original version to maintain system stability. The file version of the system file is 5.1.2600.5512.

    That being said (educational fodder for Microsoft hired 'experts' Support Engineer):

    I downloaded a copy of XP Pro SP3 file you need on my SkyDrive (everyone has a SkyDrive for file sharing).

    You can download it and when you do, place a copy of the file in these two folders (assuming that Windows is installed on your C drive):

    c:\Windows\System32\dllcache (this is where XP keeps backups of important files).

    Here is the link to my SkyDrive and you can get the file you need here:! 311

    When you see the files available for download, you can not see the file extension (.exe, .dll, .cpl, .sys, .zip, etc.), but when download you them they will have the right extension.

    When you download the file (especially if you use Internet Explorer), when you get a chance to save the file, your browser is unable to save the file with an extension (by example, .exe, .dll, .cpl, .sys, .zip, etc) then you will need to manually add the extension appropriate to the file when you download the file before you save it.

    You can download the file without the extension, and then rename the file to add the appropriate extension.  You do not want to use a file called rundll32 when the name of the file should really be called rundll32.exe (if the downloaded file has no extension, you will need to change the name of the file to add the appropriate extension to make it work.

    You then put the downloaded files in the correct folders on your system.

Everything started after I ran scan and scan deleted some files infected. However, I can use the system. Where and how to download the missing files? Or how the system does not deliver messages?


    Two of the three files are probably part of the malware infection and not the files infected. The third is probably the same details in this link:

    To identify what loads when you start using Autoruns (freeware from Microsoft).

    With Autoruns, you can deselect an item which disables startup, or you can click with the right button on an item, then remove it. If you clear the check box that you can check back for re - activate the element. It is an approach much safer than editing the registry and better than using msconfig. You will find the three points and they will have a description 'file is missing' against everyone. Your antivirus software has removed the files, but not the startup entries in the registry. All you need to do is delete the entry using Autoruns to eliminate the error messages.

    Another useful feature of the program is that you can click with the right button on an item and select search online to get information about the selected item.

    After restoring the Windows partition boot flag, I got:

I know that this (ntkrnlpa.exe) file does not exist, and it should not. System could not start any mode (even Safe Mode base).

    Can someone help me, I am trying to open files and folders, and all I get is Windows can't find C;\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe and stop me so gains access. I was told that I could find the file on another computer stick in my memory stick and reapply, only problem I have is I don't know where its located. I'm on windows XP.

    Thank you very much

    Thanks for the suggestion, Lisa!  I tried the link but it says page is more noticed.

    You happen to know any other solution for that darn missing file?  I can't open all the apps in my control panel! ACK!

    Someone found a solution to this problem yet?  Thanks a lot for any attempt to answer!


    EDIT: I GOT IT!  Browsing the internet, I came across this answer:

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

    Otherwise you need a windows disk to extend this fichier.* *.

    I have dd a search on my computer for the file "rundll32.exe" and he came in two different folders on my hard drive.  But it MUST be in c:\windows\system32 (file there lack of).  I found the file in the folder dllcache as shown above, then simply copied and pasted in the system32 folder.  And WALLAH!  Problem solved and control panel and all the rest works just fine now!  So simple!  I hope it works for you, the people who are still struggling with this problem!

  • not found c:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe

    It's one of the messages when I try to open certain files or downloads.  I can't get my control panel items to open.   What is happening with my system?

    If you see a message like this:

    Control Panel
    Windows cannot find 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe '.  Make sure you typed the name correctly and then try again.  To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click search.

    This means that your system is currently or has been infected with malicious or all software you use antivirus/antimalware tools examined the file a threat and quarantined (effectively deleted) file.

    Provide information on your system, the better you can:

    What is your system brand and model?

    What is your Version of XP and the Service Pack?

    Describe your current antivirus and software anti malware situation: McAfee, Symantec, Norton, Spybot, AVG, Avira!, MSE, Panda, Trend Micro, CA, Defender, ZoneAlarm, PC Tools, Comodo, etc..

    The afflicted system has a working CD/DVD (internal or external) drive?

    You have a true bootable XP installation CD (it is not the same as any recovery CD provided with your system)?

    If the system works, what do you think might have changed since the last time it did not work properly?

    Sinusoidal signals, we know nothing on your system, I have on my SkyDrive a copy of rundll32.exe file that comes from Windows XP Service Pack 3.

    Things of course would work better here is the support engineers technical Microsoft has not assumed automatically everyone has a CD of Windows XP installation by hand, huh?  The Ministry of Education should address the problems with the idea that no one has a genuine XP bootable installation CD.

    You can download the rundll32.exe file and when you do, place a copy of the file in these two folders (assuming that Windows is installed on your C drive):

    c:\Windows\System32\dllcache (this is where XP keeps backups of important files).

    Here is the link to my SkyDrive and you can get the file you need here:! 311

    When you see the files available for download, you will not see the extension of file (.exe, .dll, .cpl, .sys, etc), but when download you them they will have the right extension.

    You have to put the downloaded files in the correct folders on your system.

    That may not solve all your problems, but at least you will be spending this part and we can then fix the rest.

    I would follow with this:

    Perform scans for malware, and then fix any problems:
    Download, install, update and do a full scan with these free malware detection programs:

    Looks like you had a meeting with the FBI MoneyPack (Ransomware) malicious software.  Fact that all sounds familiar (FBI, your PC is locked, you need to pay your fine, etc.).

    You must first perform some scanners from reputable and do what they can do, but sometimes leave you with a fake startup item that you must manually remove using something like Autoruns.

    No matter what you use for protection against malware, perform the following analyses for malware, then correct any problems:

    Download, install, update and do a quick scan with these free malware detection programs (not at the same time):

    Malwarebytes (MMFA):
    SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS):

    SAS will probably report a lot of tracking cookies and you can just let him delete them.

    They can be uninstalled later if you wish.

    The scans by operating clean, restart, and then fix any problems.

    If you still receive the message, delete the element of persistent starting using Autoruns.

    Here's how:

    A "Cannot find...". ', ' Failed to start..., "Could not load..." ». "Might not work... "" Cannot run ""error loading... ". "or"specific module could not be found"message at startup is usually related to the malware that has been configured to run at startup, but the referenced file has been removed after a malware scan, leaving behind him a startup item or the registry entry pointing to a file that does not exist.
    It might be a removal of malicious software or an application not installed.  The entry may have a curious looking name since it was probably generated at random when the malware was installed. If you search your system for the referenced file, you may not find.
    Windows attempts to load this file but cannot locate because the file has been deleted for most probably during an analysis of the malware. However, an orphaned associate of remainders of startup parameter or registry entry and tells Windows to load the file when you start or connection.
    So you should delete the referenced entry Windows stop trying to load or run the file. It may or may not be included in the registry, but you can find it.  Autoruns (see below) you get the elements no matter where it is.

    You must be sure to solve the problem and not just fix the symptom of the problem by simply relieving your message - system is not a fix (there is a difference).

    If you just locate and uncheck the item in msconfig, which disables the element but does not remove the reference to the element of false starting your computer.   The msconfig program is not a Startup Manager, that's a troubleshooting tool.  Disabling things in msconfig to put an end to the messages and think that your problem is solved is short-sighted and leave behind him a sloppy XP configuration.  Just disable the display of a start-up error message should not count as a 'solution' to the problem.
    If you are comfortable editing the registry, you can find and remove the reference directly from there or remove it using a popular third-party tool called Autoruns.  The problem can always be found in the registry well.
    Before making any changes to your registry by hand or with third-party tools, don't forget to first make a backup of the registry. There is no cancellation or exit without saving the option in regedit.
    Here is a link to a popular registry backup tool:
    You can also use the Autoruns to find the element of start remains little matter where he's hiding.  Autoruns does not install anything on your computer.  It will display all startup locations where the reference may be then you can turn it off or remove it completely.  Here is the download link for Autoruns:
    Run Autoruns.exe and wait that he at the end of the filling of the list of entries.
    When the Autoruns is finished scanning your system, it will say "Ready" in the lower left corner.  Autoruns can be a little intimidating to first if you have never seen it before because it displays a lot of information
    .  You are really interested only a few sections.
    The problem is usually to start the system or the user startup entries, then click the connection tab and see if the startup item is there.
    Scroll through the list and look for a boot entry associated files in the error message.
    If you can't find on the connection tab, look in any tab.
    You can also click file, search to search for logon, or any tab for all or part of the name of the element.
    Right-click on the offending entry and choose Remove.  If you are not sure what it is, you can simply turn off (uncheck the entry), reboot, and if the problem is resolved and things work normally and everything works fine, then delete the offending entry.  If you don't see it in Autoruns, you may edit the registry and remove the item from your startup folder it.  Autoruns shall display the same information however.
