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.

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

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.

from the link below.

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.
