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

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.

Re: Windows Movie Maker. When drop n drag picture is brought to the timeline, OK. But, when music is added to the Audio line, the system shuts down with a message: Windows Movie Maker has stopped working....


It is possible that the movie maker is unable to do that task assigned because of the size of the video and audio file. can you try a small file first and see if they will work. a short video and audio clip less than a min. should do

Publish and save your Windows Movie Maker movie to your computer


As most of you know, I make computer video tutorials and post them to Youtube for everyone to learn about computers. I do not use anything fancy or even expensive, in fact I use the free Camstudio program to record the tutorial and Windows Movie Maker to edit it... Windows movie make comes with most versions of Windows. In this tutorial I will show you how save and publish your windows movie maker production to your computer. This way you can watch it anytime you like, email it to friends, or upload it to Youtube.

What do you need to save a movie to your computer?

* You will need to have Windows Movie Maker on your computer. If you have a normal version of Windows then you will have Windows Movie Maker installed as well, however some versions do not have it. For example Windows Seven Ultimate doesn't have it.
* You will need a finished movie ready to save. You might have used Camstudio or even a video camera to record it.
* You will need storage space to save the movie to. If you save your movie as an .avi then it will take up twice as much space as a movie saved as .wmv. I usually save my movies as a .wmv as Youtube happily takes this format.

How to Publish my movie to save it on my computer?

When using Windows Movie Maker instead of saying save movie, this program uses the term "publish movie". Therefore we will publish the movie to the computer. This will save the finished movie file to play at a later date.

In this tutorial I will presume that you have finished editing your movie and now want to save it onto your computer.

1. In the tasks menu on the left side, when you have your program open, there is a menu. If you do not see this menu, press on File at the top and choose publish from the drop down menu.
2. If you do see the menu, go to the Publish section.
3. Click on "This computer". See the screenshot below.
4. A Publish movie dialog box will appear.
5. Fill in your movie name.
6. Press on browse to choose where to save your movie on your computer. See screenshot below.
7. Then press the next button.
8. The next window will appear.
9. Choose what setting you want your movie to be. If you choose the top choice, Best quality for playback then your movie will be an AVI and will be bigger in size and need more storage space. See below.
10. If you choose the more settings choice, you can choose more options.
11. See below, if you click the drop down arrow you can see the choices.
12. I usually choose "Windows Media DVD Quality (PAL) (3.0 Mbps)"
13. Down below it will show you the exact details of what your movie will be.
14. Now when you are ready you can press on the publish button and the movie will be converted and saved to your computer.

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)
