rundll32 problems...

  1. Hi. I'm using Win XP pro. When I right-click My Comp and click Properties, an error message (rundll32.exe - Unable to locate component - This application has failed to start because framedyn.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem). But, framedyn.dll is present in my computer. Also, System Restore tab is missing in Properties, although I'm an administrator. Then, System Restore can't be run in Control Panel, and I got the same error message. Please help.

    Thanks a lot

    hmm, sounds like you definitely wanna run a repair installation from the XP cd, not sure of any other way to fix a rundll problem other then having the system fix it itself, sorry man
  3. thx for the info lets hope that sorts it out then...i will do that when i get home as im at wrk at the moment...will let u knw

  4. Well when i got home i tried it...i put the xp pro cd in and there was not an option i could find about repair?
    so i just did an installation...this took about 35 mins or so..(i was crapping myself at the time wish i never did it as i thought that it may restore my system to factory settings) the outcome was longer i got this error while rght clicking on my computer!

    for the guidance!!
