Windows host process(rundII32)has stopped working.
Every time I start my computer or if I try and access certain areas such as the security centre,change screen resolution or even change desktop icons the above message is displayed.A message appears saying windows is looking for a solution but it never appears! It does not appear to affect the general running of the computer,but I am a bit concerned I might have a serious gremlin in the system.I have tried a system restore and have done several full system scans with Norton and System Mechanic and they both report the system is working properly!Have you any ideas because I"m stumped!

Hi, If you use another anti virus/spy program like Norton Antivirus which i suspect you are as you are using Norton Internet Security then you may not need Windows Defender running at all. If you think that Windows Defender is the culprit stopping your Canon application from running then why don't you stop Defender from running. Open the Windows Defender program, click on Tools->Options, select Administrator
Options, and uncheck the "Use Windows Defender box". Confirm that you do
indeed want to do this, click Close. Restart your computer and try running the Canon application to see if it has helped. If it has then all's well, if you want to run Windows Defender again just follow the above steps and re-check the "Use Windows Defender" box again. If this does not work please post back.

Run.dll is father of all dlls which controls Control panel , Host application process and if it get corrupted better to reinstall or restore your system. If you know how to restore the dll you can do that way also but not sure the version of run.dll you are copying in to windows system32 files might match.
Secure all your wanted data before you try to do anything above I mean first you back your wanted files.
