Suggest you ask in a more appropriate newsgroup - this one is for Windows
Millennium Edition questions.

As Noel indicated, Windows XP questions should NOT be asked in a Windows Millenium News
Group.

However...
I found RUNDLL32.EXE in both 'c:\winnt' and 'c:\winnt\system32' in addition you use the
EXPAND is a better utility to use than the EXTRACT utility.

expand e:\i386\rundll32.ex_ %windir%\rundll32.exe
expand e:\i386\rundll32.ex_ %windir%\system32\rundll32.exe

In addition, you should be running Windows XP SP2 !

In the future don't use Google. Use a News Client such as Outlook Express to access News
Group as it it is FAR superior in capabilities. Also post in the appropriate News Group
associated with your query.

The following URL will take your default News Client to the Windows XP News Group where this
should have been posted in the first place.
