Specs: windows XP pro, AMD- 1.7GHz / 256RAM

HI

when i right click on "My Computer" and left click on "properties", I get a "rundll32.exe - Bad Image" message.

It says: "The application or DLL C:\Windows\system32\wuaueng.dll is not a valid windows image. please check this against your installation diskette."

I have no idea what is it and how to make it dissapear.

Any idea??

Thanks

David

Here is some info about that DLL-

I was wondering, have you ever installed anything related to Windows Update via a floppy disk ??

Does the same thing happen if you right click for both ??

The first thing I would try is to scan for possible corrupt dll's (Dynamic Link Library) files.
Start>Run> type in SFC /SCANNOW
Have your WinXP CD ready to insert when it asks for it.

Perhaps "please check this against your installation diskette" means your install CD

You can get info about rundll32.exe here-
Task List Programs

In testing My Computer Properties, I find that rundll32.exe comes up in Task Manager for me.
Maybe I have a buggy dll file ?

Does the same thing happen when you do-
Start,
Control Panel,
Performance and Maintenance,
then System

thank you all.
no i did not install anything related to Windows Update via a floppy, but i have problems to update windows.
at http://www.processlibrary.com/directory/files/wuaueng/, they recomend to run "WinTasks 5.0 Professional" so i will try to get it.

I will do a SFC /SCANNOW and let you know.

after reading about it i think it is related to the Windows® Update Agent (WUA) that i have downloaded a few days ago.

I did not find a fix for that on microsoft site.

Thanks and i will let you know.
