Emachine will not run anything

Rundll32.exe errors typically occur in response to the inability of Windows to access an application, program or file as the result of a corrupted or missing DLL (Dynamic Link Library) file or in response to a rundll32.exe virus that has been designed to look like a normal Windows process.

Here are the easiest ways to fix rundll32.exe errors.
Click "Ctrl + Alt + Delete" on your computer's keyboard to open the Task Manager window.

Click the "Processes" tab and search for a rundll32.exe program.
If one is running and appears to be accessing a lot of your system's resources, click "End Process" as it is likely a malicious program and not a true Windows program.

Run software to seek out, detain and remove viruses, malware, spyware and adware. Often these malicious programs corrupt DLL files or cause them to be deleted or moved and, as mentioned, some rundll32.exe programs may in fact be viruses on your system.

Reboot your computer to update any changes you may have made recently to your files and programs.
Many programs and applications require a reboot for successful installation.

Uninstall a recently installed or changed program or application and then reinstall it using the default settings.

An installed program may not have loaded properly, an installation via the Internet may have been interrupted enough to create errors or the program may have a bug.

If you uninstalled a program and see a rundll32.exe error, reinstall the program and then uninstall once more.

Retain the services of a Microsoft certified technician, if all else fails, to review and fix your system's Registry.

Lock Your xp workstation

You can lock your XP workstation with two clicks of the mouse. Create a new shortcut on your desktop using a right mouse click, and enter 'rundll32.exe user32.dll, LockWorkStation' in the location field. Give the shortcut a name you like. That's it -- just double click on it and your computer will be locked. And if that's not easy enough, Windows key + L will do the same.

Rundll32.exe error

what that means is that your computer is sending shutdown commands to all the apps running in the background and they arent responding fast enough. its nothing serious or anything that will cause problems BUT if you want to get rid of it, do some googling on cleaning up your computer's startup routine with msconfig. turn off everything but your antivirus and the problem will most likely go away.

Rundll32 stopped working

you may have some corrupt files in your computer, I would suggest you do a disk check
Hold down the windows key and press R type in cmd and press enter
in the cmd window type in chkdsk /F /X C: you will probably have to restart the computer to perform the operationg if you don't want to restart you can simply type in chkdsk C: or you can also do the check from going into my computer right click on the c drive select properties then tools and disk check.
