How was rundll32 deleted ??? by you, or ccleaner ???

Files on a system drive which are deleted by you are normally sent to the Recycle Bin. Have you check in there ???

my only last source is to reboot,but do i need Microsoft CD?Is there any disadvantage or losing files?
Cause, it keeps saying,"Windows cannot find 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe'.Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again."-OR-"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
I need more responds ASAP,I need to use my laptop for school!!!!!

Which is it ???
You say rundll32, then you say rundll

There is a RUNDLL32.EX_ inside this folder --- C:\WINDOWS\I386

I think that file has to be 'Expanded' and placed into this folder ---- C:\WINDOWS\system32
