Specs: Windows XP
About a week ago i got a virus on my computer and couldnt get rid of it with my Webroot anti-virus so i restored my computer to an earlier date. Well now my Rundll32.exe program is missing, i cant download ANYTHING, including any updates, i cant change the time, open task manager, or my itunes, and almost everything in my control panel doesnt work. And when i click on files like Paint, itunes, Yahoo messenger, etc.. a box pops up saying Open file with: and it gives a list of what to open it with and for some programs when i find the right one it works. But for most programs it doesnt work because it says application not found. I dont know anything about my computer except that it's Window XP and i got it 6 years ago. If you can somehow send me the file for Rundll32.exe i would really appreciate it. My email is:
I hope you can help me, Thank you

This is the ME forum and you are using XP?

Suggest you repost this in the XP forum and include a refence to your original post here; but hopefully all answers etc. will arive in the XP post/forum) - apart from this one...?

A google search for:

Rundll32.exe missing windows XP

will bring up various resolutions... e.g.

And this is a very useful (helpful?) video to same end...

There are other similar hits/respnses/references too "out there" - via google etc...

Also if you can get on-line OK... go to and locate/run their freebie Housecall scan. Allow it to run a full scan. Before you run the scan - disable system restore. Anything that is quarantined by the scan - delete it. reboot and re-enable system restore. You may also run a locally installed utility too - again first disable system-restore etc. as just above.

The reason for disabling system restore is to prevent that function from restoring the virus affected files etc. when it detects they are missing...! Once the system is clean system restore will take a new snapshot and that will hopefully be clean of all nasties...

Also once clean... delete any restore point(s) that are around the time the malware etc. appeared...; but keep any that may be OK (pre malware etc..) - although I would be inclined to delete all and start a fresh list...
