rundll32 problems...


original delboy

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

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!!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
