Rundll32.exe problems

June 14, 2008 at 00:39:00
Specs: XP Home, not sure
I had a virus and it corrupted my Rundll32.exe file. I have to either find where to download rundll32.exe or use the one off my xp CD. I'm trying to fix this problem by using what microsoft website says. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/812...

But instead of extracting it off the CD, I get this problem....

See if expand.exe is in C:\WINDOWS\system32 folder.

Try System File Checker to fix files:
Do Start, then RUN, then type:

sfc /scannow

note space between the c and /
Have XP CD in your drive.

I am thinking now that sfc.exe will not work either.

That M$ article has a link to another article, and that to another, and another, and so on.
Each has a Registry fix shown, if you want to go
that route.

ok. I hate to say this but I have very little experience with dealing problems like this. I thought maybe this time i'd try to fix the problem myself. Is there a way that maybe I can just download rundll32.exe from somewhere and overwrite it over the old one?

Try this. You MUST have XP CD.

1. Mount the Windows XP CD-ROM.

2. Open a CMD.exe session.

3. Type expand <CD-ROM:>\i386\rundll32.ex_ %Systemroot%\rundll32.exe and press Enter.

4. Shutdown and restart Windows XP.

Forgot,

If this doesn't work you have other problems and simply installing rundll32.exe probably won't work either.

Run sfc/scannow.

it says it cannot find sfc/scannow. I'm would copy stuff I have and put it on a disk but the problem is that i can't even open windows media player or most of the programs.

By the sound of it you have more problems than you can poke a stick at.

Reformat and re-install Windows is the easiest way out of the mess your in...

Before this goes too far try a system repair.
