Are you logged in using an account with admin permissions?
Has this program been installed on your system before?
You may need to uninstall and install it again.

You must make sure that none of the files are in use.
Nothing I know of should ever try to access system files.

What is the program you are trying to install. Are you sure it does not contain a virus?

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.

Wat is winlogon that appear in my desktop


The process "winlogon.exe" runs in the background.

Winlogon is a part of the Windows Login subsystem, and is necessary for user authorization and Windows activation checks. http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/proces...

Note: The winlogon.exe file is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. In other cases, winlogon.exe is a virus, spyware, trojan or worm! Check this with Security Task Manager."


Microsoft designed Windows so many small applications perform their tasks without a user knowing about it.


Normally, this will run smoothly and without flaw, but every once in a while, an issue can come up.


Winlogon.exe is an application that runs on start-up, and its primary function is to monitor the use of other applications.


Winlogon.exe typically only runs for about a minute or two when Windows first boots up, so if for some reason it is still running five or 10 minutes later, it could be infected.


Spyware and other malware would infect this application because it can manipulate other programs in Windows, causing problems.


If this is the case, the file might need to be removed.



if you want to remove this from


Open "My Computer" and select the "C:" drive.


Double click the "Windows" folder, then select "System 32." Navigate through the System 32 folder until you find "Winlogon.exe."


Click the "Winlogon.exe" file and hit "Delete." Select "Yes" when asked if you're sure you want to remove the program.


hope this helps

Problem with Run Program


It is probably a leftover problem from spyware or a virus.
Open Windows Explorer and go to C:\Windows\System32

Click Folder Options on the Tools menu.
Click the View tab
Select Show hidden files and folders, under Hidden files and folders

Now find cmd.com and delete it
Don't touch command.com, only cmd.com.
Check also for the file ping.com and delete it if it exists.

Warning: Don't delete cmd.exe and ping.exe only the files with .com extension. Be careful, because you are working with system files here.

Good luck
Please post some feedback or if you need more help

A support tech at Canon suggested I try this.

find the file ImageCache.ic - I found it in application data folder in My Documents, delete it.

Uninstall CD Label Print, search for any other "CD Label Print" files or folders and delete them too.

Re-boot and re-install CD Label Print.

This worked for me. Hope it works for you too.

Cheers
