Hi guys!

I accidently deleted my rundll32.exe file on Win 98 SE. (Someone said it was spyware!) Any idea what I should do next? Without rundll32.exe MANY things don't work :-( such as my whole Control Panel. Unfortunately I have NO access to floppy or CD boot disks.

Any geniuses out there?

Welcome to GTG cyberdoufus <_<

You can download it here (must have WinZip or similar to extract):

Extract to the folder it was deleted from, reboot, and see how it goes. :D

When you open Task Manager, you may see Rundll32.exe entry in the Processes tab. You may also encounter a rundll32.exe error at shutdown. Rundll32.exe is a valid system file which executes a function of a DLL. The actual command may be Rundll32.exe filename.dll, <function-name>, whereas Task Manager reports only the command name and not it's parameter.

Try going to bootdisk.com down load the 98 boot disk to your desktop you might be able to run it from there or just find the file and copy it back to your bootup file
