    Rundll32.exe issues | Hello ! What is rundll32.exe process? Is it a virus? :D


    First of, hello, just made an account for this one issue.

    Now then, you can clearly see in the image what the problem is,


    What is rundll32.exe process? Is it a virus? [​IMG]


    if for some reason you can't see the image, then the problem is Rundll32, which is a windows host process. It run's it self multiple times at the same time consuming all of my resources. This is a fresh copy of Windows 10, MalwareBytes show no signs of virus or malware on the file or the PC it self.

    I've tried what was suggested in this thread: Solved CEIP - rundll32.exe high CPU use in Win 10? - Windows 10 Forums

    But it didn't help, I would appreciate a little more help, please.

    Process Explorer, doesn't show anything useful, just say's n/a or simply blank fields.

    Rundll32.exe Problem


    Rundll32.exe is a critical Windows process. The article linked to by Cliff S shows how to disable a specific instance of it, not the process in general. If all instances of the Rundll32.exe process could be prevented from starting your OS would be crippled.

    rundll32.exe error in windows 10

    This is caused by an entry in your Startup processes:

    • Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc keys together to open Task Manager
    • On the Startup Tab look for anything relating to this file (rundll32.exe)
    • If you find something related, select it and click 'Disable'

    If you did not find it there:

    • Press Windows + R keys together to open the Run Dialog
    • Type msconfig in the run dialog and hit enter
    • Click on the Services Tab of the resulting dialog
    • Check the box marked 'Hide all Microsoft Services'
    • Look for anything relating to this file (rundll32.exe)
    • If you find it, uncheck it
    • Click Apply and Reboot
