I get the windows\system32\rundll32.exe error following the parameter is incorrect. I tried a repair Rundll32 loading, but the computer will not accept. All microsoft and windows updates are up-to-date BLAH today. What to do next? When I try to use the box of computer help, a black box appears for about 1 second and the computer does nothing.  Not lock up and I can still do emails, just no game.

Please run Doug Knox fix .exe (which is not a file .exe so you can run it) and then carefully swipe to the malware.

    I recently had just some malware on my Vista saying that it was infected and that it had been hijacked, but I just ignored and finally got rid of him, but now that I managed to get rid of it none of my executables will be run and the touchpad scroll my mouse touch (I have a laptop) now no longer works.  And I can't access settings of the mouse because whenever I try an error pops up saying that the Rundll32.exe is missing.  In any case, the malicious software that I've been having troubled by claimed to be Vista (don't remember if the next word was security or anti-virus) - but it was called Vista? 2010, Vista Security 2010 thing.  However, I can never remember install such a file, and I don't have no automatic updates so if I got something like that Microsoft it would at least go back to 2009, if not 2008.

    You obviously put a lot of work into this response, but the OP will not be able to run any executable at this stage and your malware removal steps are incorrect. The only part you're right was that the OP has been infected by a rogue security program (not ' red').

  • Miss me the windows system32 rundll32.exe. I can't access the Add/Remove in the control panel.

    original title: missing file

    Miss me the windows system32 rundll32.exe. I can't access the Add/Remove in the control panel.

    I tried to start - run with my c/d operating system

    I checked for viruses

    I purchase software to remove etc and REG files.

    Now that the devil do?

    Thank you

    If this

    I tried to start - run with my c/d operating system

    means that you have tried to use sfc/scannow from start > run, your experience is not surprising.  This 'solution' is often suggested by people who don't really understand what this command does.  It does not help to restore a missing rundll32.exe file.

    For what is

    I checked for viruses

    What is the name and version of your anti-virus application?  When (approximately) their subscription expires? What other antimalware applications installed?  What other antimalware applications you used recently to scan your computer?

    If you have not yet used the "software to remove the REG files and etc." return for refund or throw it out.  "Registry cleaners", 'tuners', etc. are not useful.  If you used to "clean" the registry, use its "undo" feature (if it has one) to restore the registry.  Longtime MS MVP PA Bear:

    TIP: If you still think again your registry database must be cleaned, repaired, amplified, to the point, healed, twisted, fixed, enlarged, "swept" or optimized (it isn't), read http://aumha.net/viewtopic.php?t=28099 and draw your own conclusions. See also http://blogs.technet.com/markrussinovich/archive/2005/10/02/registry-junk-a-windows-fact-of-life.aspx

    What probably happened is that your antivirus application deleted or quarantined in your file rundll32.exe thinking he was infected.  He could have, but probably not.  In any case, read the post that begins, "That 'solution' is not on my list." in the following thread: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_xp-performance/systemrundllexe-not-found/6e30aff2-a88e-4d86-a654-753d54f632d1 you can also read the rest of the posts in this thread.

    Note that c:\windows\system32\dllcache is a hidden folder, but you who type in the address bar of Windows Explorer (or copy and paste), the folder should open anyway.

    Assuming you manage to restore rundll32.exe, download, install, update and run full scans (not at the same time) with each of the following free tools.

  • On the computer of the opening, this message: c:\windows\system32\rundll32.exe.

    I searched the drivers and utilities cd that came w/my computer and the operating system cd and do not find this file there.  Don't know what to do from this point on.  Cannot remove programs without this file.  Thanks for any help!

    When you try to open a control panel applet, 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.

    If the file is actually missing, it was probably quarantined (actually deleted) by some program antivirus or antimalware you use.

    You might want to reconsider some anti-virus or anti-malware software, you use and whether or not they are effective to protect your system.

    You can look in the c:\windows\system32 folder and see if the file is actually missing or not, but if it is really missing, you must replace it somehow.

    Since the file is one of the protected files 3498 who cares about XP, needed a backup copy of the file on your system in a few other cases.  You must do what the message says and search for the file.

    Click Start, search, for files and folders... and in the search box, enter:

    Rundll32.exe

    The click the search button to search for you the hard drive for a copy of the missing file.

    You can find a copy of the file that is missing in these folders:

    c:\Windows\System32\dllcache
    c:\windows\ServicePackFiles\i386

    If you find a copy in one of these two files, copy and paste it in the c:\windows\system32 folder.  There may be other files rundll32.exe on your system of MS updates, but they can only be those you need (they could work maybe).

    Answered in the affirmative if invited to replace the existing file.

    If you cannot find a copy of the file in one of these two places, there is one on my SkyDrive, you can download.  Here's how:

    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
    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:
    https://SkyDrive.live.com/?CID=6a7e789cab1d6f39&ID=6A7E789CAB1D6F39! 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.

    Note that advice to run sfc/scannow will not replace a file rundll32.exe missing in the system32 folder.  If you need to prove that to yourself, I also have instructions for it.

    Original title: rundll.exe error

    I checked the previous messages and can't seem to find a solution to this problem.  Recently I ran 3 different scans, i.e. sbybot, avast and Malawarebytes virus. After that I ran these anti-virus programs and remove viruses, I was not able to open any more virus scanners. Every time I tried, would open a window saying "Choose the program you want to use to open this file." If I try to download a new virus scanner, it says the same thing.

    When I try to open the Control Panel, add or remove programs, a window appears saying "C:Windows\system32\rundll32.exe Application not found. I checked this file on my c: drive\system 32 and see the rundll.exe file. I also copy and pasted the file rundll.exe my CD of Windows XP in c: Windows\System32

    Hello

    • When you receive this error message?
    • What were the changes made before the issue started?

    Try the SFC scan on the computer.

    SFC/scannow is a very useful command that you can use in any version of Windows. When the SFC (System File Checker) command is used with the/scannow switch, the tool analyzes all the important files of Windows on your computer and replace if necessary.

    Missing and the corruption of the operating system (like many DLLs) files are probably the main cause of the major problems of Windows. In view of this, plus the fact that the SFC/scannow is completely automatic and very easy to use, the tool should be usually one of your top not troubleshooting.
