Just bought a PC at a yard sale. PC gives an error message that says rundll32.exe application not found. I found this error while trying to open my add/remove. I have gone to other forums such as malware and spyware on here but since the PC can't open any files with .exe extensions downloading anything and opening it doesn't seem like an option. Please do not tell me to just go back to the malware forum as I have been there and would be willing to follow the directions to remove the malware IF I could run .exe files. I tried copying the rundll32.exe file from the i386 folder. I tried copying from a totally different computer to the system folder. I tried to run the antivirus and malware software that is already installed and each time I get the same message "rundll32.exe app not found." and/or choose which program to open with. Have tried several in case I got lucky but with no luck at all. Again, I have tried to download programs to help remove malware but can not run these programs because of the rundll32.exe problem. I have disconnected the PC from the internet and am now using one of my others to post here. Thanks to everyone for their help in advance.
