when clicking on any icon in Control Panel or to right click and get into properties for my computer this comes up as follows.

C:\windows\system32\rundll32.exe isnot a valid win32 application.

Did a search on google and only got 1 link to a russian site So I kept clear of that.

Have run a virus check but nothing found. Luckily I can get into the MY Documents folder. Kids have been on it while at work but no idea what they have done.

go to the Run box on the Start Menu and type in:

sfc /scannow

This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem.
