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.

Thanks Hothawk

    Rundll32 may it can be a virus too



    The rundll32.exe file is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. In other cases, rundll32.exe is a virus, spyware, trojan or worm



    Rundll32 is used to run DLLs as programs as well

How do I fix rundll32.exe on Windows XP?


Rundll32.exe is an important process for the Windows operating system. The process rundll32.exe take the dll file and put their libraries in the system memory. Without this process, the computer should be unstable and very slow.<br /><br />The process runs from your system directory C: \ Windows \ system32. If it executes or runs from elsewhere is most likely a virus or a Trojan. You should scan your computer immediately with a virus scanner. Viruses using the name rundll32.exe are W32.Miroot.Worm. Backdoor.Lastdoor and Trojan.StartPage (among others).<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Fix rundll32.exe</span><br /><br />If a virus, such as Netsky, destroys rundll32.exe or, if for any reason, your rundll32.exe is corrupt or is accidentally removed, you must do the following:<br /><br style="font-weight: bold;" /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Find rundll32.exe DC system</span><br /><br />Check if you find a copy of rundll32.exe in the folder C: \ Windows \ system32 \ dllcache or in C: \ Windows \ Service Pack Files \ i386. If yes, go ahead and copy rundll32.exe to the system directory C: \ Windows \ system32<br /><br />If you can not find a copy on your system, try to locate the file on your Windows installation disc. Finally, you just reinstall Windows. It would be time consuming, and you may lose all your data.

When i turn on my pc i get the message "windows host process (rundll32) has stopped working.


Try a system restore if you can to before this occured

OTHERWISE


Please follow these instructions to check which software is causing this issue:

1. Click on Pearl (Start Button), in the serach box type:

msconfig

and hit the enter key on the keyboard. It should open the System Configuration Utility window.

2. Click on Services over the top and then at the bottom right corner, put a check in the "Hide all Microsoft services" checkbox.

3. Click on "Disable All" button.

4. Click on "Startup" tab, and then click on "Disable All" button again.

5. Press OK button and then "Restart" button on the following window. Let the computer restart.

6. Once you're back on the desktop, you'd get a window for System Configuration Utility. Put a check in the box "Don't Show....." and then press OK button.

7. Now, once again check the issue. If the issue is resolved, open System Configuration Windows again and then enable all the services from Services tab and then check the issue after restarting the computer in the same way as mentioned above.

8. If issue is still resolved, enable half of the Startup items from Startup tab and then check issue.

9. If issue occurs again, it means, there's a culprit in the checked startup items. But if issue doesn't occur, then issue could be with rest of the Startup items. Now, uncheck the first half startup items (that were check before), and then check rest of the half items. Check the issue again.......

10. Now, if the issue occurs, then make a note of all the names of the startup items and then follow the same procedure, for them. Now, you need to be careful, as by design the System Configuration will sort all the enable startup items to the top. So, it means all the entries would be mixed on next reboot. From now on you need to make a note of all the entries that you're enabling or disabling........

Windows Explorer sends continuously error messages


Turning off thumbnails will probably stop you getting that error

DO:
Open Control Panel > Folder Options > Always show Icons, Never Thumbnails

However, this isn't actually fixing the problem.

Do you have Nero installed by any chance?

If so try:
Open Computer > System Drive > Program files > Common Files > Ahead > DSfilter.
Rename "NeroVideoProc.ax" to "1NeroVideoProc.ax"
Also rename "NeVideo.ax" to "1NeVideo.ax"

And then reboot.

Windows host process rundll32 has stopped running in Vista System


OMG! there are tons of reasons NOT to use the geek squad. I get geek squad victims in my shop every week. This can probably be figured out remotely- but if it came from BB- I would just about BET it is norton, or spysweeper as the root of the problem, or perhaps an incompatable program on Vista. There might be a problem with the motherboard too- and checking on Dell's site to see if your unit is in warranty will yield a free tech support from thm if the service tag shows a valid warranty. If replacing Norton and spysweeper with a less problematic program like AVG FREE edition (which works a lot better and is FREE!) does not help- there are other cheaper local or nationwide helpers that can fix this remotely (like me)
