Q: RUNDLL32 won't load. How I fix it without XP CD?

hey guys. My rundll32.exe doesn't work. Is it infected or something?

When I double click the programs then it is showing me "opens with" window.

Please help me? I don't have XP CD. And my msconfig, restore, cmd any exe files won't load. I don't have much time for tomorrow morning job. PLEASE HELP ME ASAP!!!

 

Is there any solution?



It sounds like your Windows file associations have come undone. This means that XP no longer knows what to do with files by looking at the file extension (like .exe for executables, .doc for MS documents, etc.).

If you did not do it yourself, something did it for you - most likely malicious software.

Go to this WWW site by Doug Knox:


On the left hand side, click the Win XP Fixes, File Association Fixes, and read the directions at the top of the page.

Download the EXE File Association Fix to your desktop, unzip the file and apply it using the instructions from the top of the page, then reboot.

Run the following scans for malicious software and then fix any remaining issues:

Download, install, update and do a full scan with these free malware detection programs:

Malwarebytes (MBAM):  http://malwarebytes.org/
SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS):  http://www.superantispyware.com/

They can be uninstalled later if desired.

Thank you for your post. But actually I tried you way but didn't work. Then I used WINDOWS SYSTEM RESTORE UTILITY at windows starts. Then roll back to previous good state.

But thank you so much for your quick response.


I hate virus.

That's good that it is working.

I would still recommend running the MBAM and SAS to be sure your system is reasonably cleaned up.

System Restore is not a time machine...
