Hi,
I'm running Xp Pro SP2, i'm unable to access the properties of MY COMPUTER,
MY NETWORK. I cannot adjust the time and date of my PC and some other options
in Conrol Panel.
Ok, so far what i have done is. I did run SFC\scannow command 2 time with my
XP CD in dos prompt and it replaced all my DLL files, but problem is still
the same.
I have Norton antivirus, Ad-Aware SE Pro, Spybot and PcBug Doctor running in
my compuer and i scanned my computer with all of them nothing detec no virus.
I tried to use expand command in dos mode C:\>expand f:\i386\rundll32.ex_
c:\windows\system32\rundll32.exe and it gives me error msg "Can't open output
file: c:\windows\system32\rundll32.exe"
What should i do now? Pls help!

Hi kelly,
Thanx for ur help but it didn't help either. First it was not clear what to
do with those registery value u told in line 83 or 203. Coz those value won't
exist in my registeries, so i created new value as u shown in your help, but
they did not work. i still get the same error when i try to go in the
properties of my computer or when i right click on my desktop and go in the
properties gives me error msg "windows cannot find
c:\windows\system32\rundll32.exe"
Pls help
Regards

Your reply is not really clear. However, in the meantime:

Run Ad-Aware SE, Spybot, CWShredder and HijackThis:
http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloads31.html

Note: Update the first two programs, once installed, before running.

Good luck and keep us posted!

Hi,

You didn't mention the "three" I noted and as for Norton (no comment). As
for the rest, I would need more info as in the keys, etc. Good luck in the
meantime!
