hey,
i'm a helponthe.net newbie, so show me some love here, ok?
i have 2 instances of rulldll.exe running, and i can't make either of them close out. what is causing rundll.exe ("Run .Dll file as an app" the title of the program is) to run double, and what can i do, if anything, to make one or the other rundll.exe to go away, preferably for good?

rundll32 generally calls another program. Let's have a look.

Go to http://tomcoyote.org/hjt/ and download HiJackThis. Use Winzip to unzip it, then install and run it. To run, click the “Scan” button. When it's done the "Scan" button changes to "Save Log". Save the log file it creates (it should open in Notepad at that point). Copy and paste the results in your next post. IF you happen to be using a proxy server, please mention it in your post. Most of what it finds is harmless, so do not do anything yet. Someone will be glad to help you sort out any of the baddies that may be in there.
