    What Windows version do you have, and have you done a file search to see if rundll32.exe is present on the system?

    You should have a copy in c:\windows

    Ok, here are instructions for replacing the file using the System File Checker:

    Using SFC to extract files

    1. Go to Start>Run and enter SFC and click OK
    2. Check "Extract one File"
    3. Enter the file name and click on "Start"
    4. In the "Restore from" field enter:: D:\WIN98 [if 'D' is not the letter of your CD-Rom drive, modify appropriately]
    5. Click OK

    {if you do not have a Windows system CD, try subsitituting c:\windows\options\cabs in the"restore from field"}


    Note: the file name you want to replace is rundll32.exe

    and the location you will be restoring it TO is : c:\windows

    I'm suspicious of that file named rundll32.com or I'd just tell you to rename it if it was in Windows. I don't know why the extensiion would have changed.
