    Thanks Chandra. I have a firewall, Avast and run a registry cleaner as well as a PC optimization program at least once a week. I ran all yesterday and they returned negative results. I will try to run a FULL SCAN of all programs and see what happens. I'd hate to have to re-install the OS and chance loosing all my files. I'll let you know how it goes. Thanx again!! :)

Dear sir,

Welcome to Fixya.

Rundll error is observed when computer is attacked by viruses and spyware.I think your computer is infected by virus and spyware.You can remove the viruses and spyware by using good Antivirus software,but if you want to get rid of all errors permenantely, solution is format your pc and reinstall your operating system then install good antivirus.
I think it helps
if you have any problem regarding this issue leave a comment or feedback we were happy to assist you.


Have a Nice Day!

Everytime I start up Windows I an error message.


Well, the reason causing Rundll Error is probably that when you are surfing on line, some Trojan and malware attack your PC and modify the registry for malicious purpose. Though the anti-virus and anti-spyware can remove those Trojans and malware, they cann't repair the destroyed registry. So, Rundll Error happens! Of course, Rundll Error is not only caused by Trojans and malware. According to our research, mis-deleting registry entries, downloading dubious files, hard shutdown PC etc can also cause Rundll Error.

When I start up Windows XP I get three error boxes each of them say: Rundll Error Loading C:windowssystem3whnoherd.dll Rundll Error Loading C:windowssystem32cryakfuvzxugjh.dll Rundll Error Loading...


Hi,

Rundll.exe files are systems process directly related to your computer's Windows Registry All Dll files are a part of vast library that contains code and data that is shared by many programs. This helps to produce speed and memory efficiency in your operating system by reusing the same code or file to run many functions by various programs. An error occurs when program aren't allowed to access this code.

Now, if you able to access the XP in safe mode, You could go to :-

Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Restore.

Select a restore point and it's all done.

Unless, the only User Fixable option is to Repair the Windows. Put the XP disk in tray and run Repair. Once repaired, it would fix the problem.

Let me know, if needed assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

a message saying windows-no dis exception processing message c0000013 parameters 75b6bf9c 4 75b6bf9c 75b6bf9c then it says cancel try agin contunue and i push one and it just keeps coming back constantly.

Friday, July 31, 2009
Hello drea_mike67,

There may be any number of storage device faults causing the no disk exception error message. For instance, a usb device may have been removed without choosing the 'safely remove hardware' option. If that's the case then reconnect the usb device and choose 'safely remove hardware' (bottom right hand corner of your PC screen), and then remove the USB device.

If the error message still comes up then try using the device manager in the windows control panel like this:

•Opening the Control Panel
The Windows Control Panel can be opened by:
Selecting *Start > Control Panel (on Windows Vista)
- OR -
Start > Run > Type 'Control' and select OK (on Windows XP)

In the Control Panel, do the following:
•Select System
•Select the Hardware tab
•Select Device Manager
•Look for disk drives or other drives that are not used or recognized...
•Right click the device(s) and select uninstall

If this solution is helpful please click 'YES' by 'Was this helpful?' below.

Have a great day,

RUNDLL


It appears that a program has been removed (not uninstalled) from the computer and XP can no longer locate the removed files while references to the files still exist. So, we need to find what is referring to this file. The easiest way would be to download, install and run a registry cleaner such as CCleaner (from www.download.com), but this can also cause more problems than it solves. The other way is to use the msconfig utility to disable all of the extras that are loading and then enable them one by one and rebooting each time until the problem appears again. Then just disable the last one enabled (that caused the problem to reappear), and continue on until all other programs and processes have been reenabled.

UNABLE TO REACH DESKTOP


loadTOCNode(1, 'symptoms');-------------------------------------SYMPTOMS:------------------------------------
When you restart your computer after you install Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1), your computer may generate the following Stop error message:
STOP: 0x00000050 (0x8872A990, 0x00000001, 0x804F35D7, 0x00000000)
PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON-PAGED_AREA
----------------------------------------CAUSE:-----------------------------------------
loadTOCNode(1, 'cause'); This problem may occur if there is a conflict between Windows XP SP1 and the display adapter drivers that are currently installed.
------------------------------------SOLUTION :---------------------------------------
loadTOCNode(1, 'resolution'); To resolve this problem, start your computer in Safe mode, remove the display adapter, rename the .inf files that are associated with the display adapter drivers, restart your computer in Normal mode, and then update your display adapter drivers. The following steps describe this procedure in more detail: 1. Start Windows in Safe mode. To do so: a. Restart the computer, and then press F8 while the computer starts. b. On the Windows Advanced Options Menu that appears, use the ARROW keys to select Safe Mode, and then press ENTER. c. Use the ARROW keys to select the operating system to start, and then press ENTER to start Windows XP in Safe mode. 2. In the message that states that Windows is running in Safe mode, click Yes. 3. Click Start, click Run, type msinfo32 in the Open box, and then click OK. 4. Under System Summary, expand Components, and then click Display. 5. In the right pane, note the information that corresponds to the INF File item, for example, Nv4.inf, Oem0.inf, or Atim128.inf. 6. Quit the System Information utility. 7. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties. 8. Click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager. 9. Expand Display adapters, right-click the display adapter, and then click Uninstall. 10. Click OK. 11. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK. 12. In the Command Prompt window, type the following commands, and then press ENTER after each line: ren %systemroot%\inf\INF file name from Step 5.inf *inf.old
ren %systemroot%\inf\INF file name from Step 5.pnf *pnf.old 13. Close all open windows, and then restart the computer in the typical manner. 14. Log on to Windows by using an account that has administrative privileges, and then wait for Windows to detect new hardware. 15. When the Found New Hardware Wizard starts, click Cancel.

If you receive a stop error after you remove the updated display drivers, restart the computer and use the Last Known Good Configuration option. To do this, restart the computer, and then press the F8 key while the computer starts. On the Windows Advanced Options Menu that appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.

If you receive a "System Has Recovered from a Serious Error" message when Windows starts, restart the computer again. This error message does not recur.16.Obtain and install the latest drivers for your display adapter.For information about how to contact computer hardware manufacturers, click the appropriate article number in the following list to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Firewall settings


This usually happens due to missing or corrupt SharedAccess reg key, which represents the Windows Firewall Service.
Resolution

Download sharedaccess.reg (for Windows XP SP2 only) and save to Desktop. Then double-click the file to merge the contents to the registry. The Services entry will be created. Restart Windows (mandatory step, otherwise the following NETSH command will display an error message).

After restarting Windows, run the following from Command Prompt (cmd.exe)

NETSH FIREWALL RESET

Launch firewall applet from Control Panel, and then configure your Windows Firewall settings.

If nothing helps, as a last-resort solution (before reinstalling Windows XP Service Pack 2), give these two commands a try. Click Start, Run and type:

rundll32 setupapi,InstallHinfSection Ndi-Steelhead 132 %windir%\inf\netrass.inf

Restart Windows, and then run this command (from Command Prompt):

NETSH FIREWALL RESET

Attempt to start Firewall applet. Start the Windows Firewall service if prompted.
