went to help out a friend who had been hit by a virus.
By the time I got there it looked like some of her anti-virus sw had cleaned it up, however there is a residual problem with rundll32 not working.
This means that a whole host of things won't work.
I'm pretty sure that the file isn't missing as I could see it in the system32 directory and even tried to copy the file back off the windows install disks.
Convinced that the registry is corrupted. There are loads of registry cleanup tools, but most need to be run after download, and the missing rundll32 stops that from happening.
Most of these registry tools just scan for free and then want you to pay up fix the host of problems that they detect.
Can anyone suggest a decent and free registry fix tool and/or suggest how I could fix this manually. There is lots of scaremongering against touching the registry yourself, but I'm wondering if much of this is the tool providers.
