Fix PC Errors : Rundll Error


How Can I Stop A Rundll Error?

With all of the attention that Windows Vista has been getting over the past few years, you would think that it was flush with so many error messages that it made users pine for the days of Windows 95. In reality, Windows Vista has turned out to be quite a fine operating system once Microsoft got around to issuing a few updates, but some folks are still getting error messages on a regular basis. One of the most common error messages involves rundll errors. These types of errors can run the gambit from slight annoyances to real troublemakers. Some people even have rundll errors to the point where their computer is almost unusable. Before we take a look at how to rid yourself of these problems, let's look at what a rundll error is and why we won't be getting rid of them completely any time soon.

What is rundll?

If you were to list every type of file on our hard drives, you would see a veritable cornucopia of letters, numbers and symbols. One of the most common file types is known as a .dll file. DLL files are absolutely essential to the way Windows operating systems run. These files contain instructions for how to run various software programs and pieces of hardware on our PCs. For example, the next time you install a program, that program will use .DLL files already on your PC to help it operate correctly. If these .DLL files didn't exist, every program on your computer would have to have their own, which would exponentially grow the sizes of every piece of software out there. In short, DLL files save us a lot of room. The RunDLL file that we see on our machines is the program used to run DLL files.

What causes rundll errors?

Since the RunDll file is used hundreds of times per day on all of our machines, spotlighting what is causing the problem can be difficult. In some cases, however, it is the fault of a virus or a piece of malware. These programs find their way on to your computer and then give false or misleading error messages in hopes that you will disable key programs that will then allow the virus or malware to take over more of your computer or help it reproduce by downloading more virus programs. The only way to truly protect yourself against this plague is with the proper spyware and virus protection software. A few good programs you can use to help prevent and repair rundll errors are Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Malwarebytes has free malware removal)  and a Windows diagnostic and repair program such as Reimage PC Repair Online . Not only should you run these programs every time you finish installing new software or hardware, but you should also set them to run by themselves at night or at some point during the week for regular maintenance.

How could this have happened?

With as advanced as today's operating systems are, you would think they would do a better job of protecting against viruses. These days, viruses and malware can come from just about anywhere. In fact, reports are on the rise of people contracting viruses from hardware they purchased in stores. A good virus and malware protection program will actually catch this before any damage can be done, but it is up to you to run the programs listed above immediately after you install any new software or hardware to see if an extra passenger came along for the ride.

You can also get viruses and malware from many old fashioned locations such as email attachments, rogue downloads from sites you probably should have stayed away from and from networks that your computer happens to be on. In fact, some rundll error viruses are made specifically for networks, so that as soon as one computer user clicks on a link they shouldn't, everyone in the group is infected in a matter of seconds. This is why it is so important to do regular scans. It really is the only way to protect yourself from viruses, undue error messages and more.

Final thoughts

For some unlucky computer users, a virus can be completely debilitating. The error message pop up windows can all but eliminate any usefulness a computer has, but you can fight back with the right programs by your side. As more and more people switch from Windows Vista to Windows 7, there is a real hope that these types of errors will become a thing of the past. Until then, it is up to each and every one of us to use the right virus protection programs and also to remember to use them on a regular basis so they can help to eradicate this menace once and for all.
