Rundll32.exe Missing.

  birdface 16:32 11 Nov 2010

Son had Windows 2011 Rogue anti virus on his computer.
Managed to run Eset which removed it but rundll32.exe no longer works and so he cannot open many of his programs or connect to the Internet.
Any quick fixes for this.
No usb stick to download it to.

Hi Fruit Bat /\0/\ I contacted you this morning but not sure if you received it or not as my computer was acting up a bit so not sure if it was actually sent.
Latest is we can get onto Google and can download things to the computer it just will not let us run anything.
Did the usual and managed to switch system restore off but cannot get anything to open.
cant get into his e-mail account and has a few things on the computer that he needs for his university course.
We can use run for the likes of msconfig but cannot open Command prompt from it.
Any help would be appreciated.
And yes he had no security on it.
He did have AVG on it but must have been the pay for version which was looking for payment so he had already removed it.
It does not matter how many times you tell them to have decent security programs they never listen.

Just got in

File sent but renamed to get past Avast (e-mail systems do not like to send or receive .exe files.

copy it and rename from rundll32.pca to rundll32.exe and move to system 32 folder.

You may also need to register the file

1. Press Start and select Run
2. Type CMD and press Enter (or if you use Windows ME, type COMMAND)
3. Type regsvr32 rundll32.exe and press Enter

* To install the dll files, type: regsvr32 rundll32.exe

4. In the end, you should receive a message saying that your file was successfully installed
