Where can I download rundll32.exe?

I am constantly getting a message saying that my C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe file is missing. Could anyone please tell me if there is a free download for this file? Many thanks.

Have a look in the System32 folder to see if it's there. As I think it's another problem

If you're running XP try a repair:

Sometimes the system files (those required to run Windows properly) can become corrupted. Here's how to run a check on your system files:
• Click Start; Run.
• In the Run box, type cmd.exe to open the command prompt window.
• At the prompt, type sfc.exe /scannow
• Press ENTER. If Windows finds problems with the system files, you will be prompted to insert your Windows XP installation CD to restore the files.

If no problems are found and the scan finishes, type exit and press ENTER.

Rundll32.exe probably exists in several locations: Do a search, copy it and plonk it in the appropriate place!
