KERNEL32.dll problems

Q: KERNEL32.dll problems

I keep getting an error message stating, "The procedure entry point MapSLFix could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll". I cannot open up mp3 files, due to this message. I replaced the winmm.dll files, which helped (the problem was MUCH worse) but I am still getting this message. Any suggestions? [email protected]

Preferred Solution: KERNEL32.dll problems

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: KERNEL32.dll problems

What program are you using for your MP3 files? Try reinstalling the program or try a different program to see if that fixes the problem.

AVG has recently been detecting kernell32 along with a few other files and states that it has changed it. I uninstalled AVG and installed McAfee but then carried out a system restore to before I uninstalled it thinking all would be ok. Now on start up I get the error message that it cannot find the AVG kernel interface and cannot run. I now cannot start avg or uninstall it.
Does anyone have any answers as to what is going on or how to repair kernel32?

Hi. I've been having kernel32.dll problems whenever I open any media player. It started out saying "The procedure entry point MakeCriticalSectionGlobal could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll". Looking through the forums, I found a suggestion to replace it with the kernel32.dl_ from the C:/I386 folder and I did. Now the error has become "The procedure entry point SUnMapLS_IP_EBP_8 could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll"

I really don't know what to do here. I've tried replacing the kernel file with something I downloaded, but I don't think it's taking since the file is Windows Protected. Any suggestions as to what I can do would be greatly appreciated.

Oh, and I've run the sfc /scannow command like 6 times already. It doesn't find anything wrong.

My son's computer is driving me mad - he keeps getting error messages referring to Kernel32.dll and lots of virus alerts from the McAfee(V8 - last Dat file 16/03/05). The last file to be infected was: C:\windows\temporary internet files\ Content IE5\LFFJPXWE\Display(1).htm, the virus was JS/Nezew.
The PC is running on Windows ME and constantly hangs. He can connect to the internet via our home network as my PC (Win XP) is the gateway. I use mine for work and although I haven't seen any problems yet I'm worried that anything he's inherited will eventually come across the network. Does anyone know where I can start? Any help would be much appreciated.

A:Kernel32.dll problems and lots of virus alerts

Hi andyrose, and welcome to TSF.

You have an outdated version of HijackThis. Click here to get the latest version of HijackThis and run it.

Before you give us a new log here, if we gave you instructions for a fix, please do the fixes first and then post the new log with this updated version.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Get HijackThis Analyzer and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in y if you agree. The result.txt file will open up in Notepad. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it in the forum. We do not need the original hijackthis.log (unless we ask for it). Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

Unfortunately you have the se.dll infection. It is important that we attack this infection first as it has a 'spawner file' that regenerates the se.dll file after a few reboots or days.

Please Download: StartDreck

Unzip to its own folder and start the program:
Press 'Config'
Press 'Mark All'

UN-Check the 'NT-Services & NT-Kernel...' boxes only:
Press 'Ok'

Press 'Save' and select the location to save the log file (default is the same folder as the application)

Post the log in this thread.

We need both the StartDreck log and the new HJT log. G'luck.

My computer keeps throwing a KERNEL32.DLL error on random web pages and knocks me off line.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?


Try running a scan for spyware, which is one of the most common causes. Ad-aware will both detect and remove them. Read the 'getting started" and FAQ pages before running it and know how to restore from the backup it creates if necessary.


Have you run an updated antivirus scan? If you don't have a scanner you can do an online one here:


If Ad-Aware doesn't resolve the problem for you, click the "details" tab of the error messages and post the modules and addresses here.

So that it only appears to be running in the background, nothing appears on the Applications tab.

Looks like they have installed a program that isn't Windows 2000 compatible and which is set to start with Windows. Have a look at this

Best bet is to boot into safe mode and uninstall whatever it is from there. If that doesn't fix the problem, boot with the W2K CD and run the repair option to replace damaged files.

I've been getting a lot of trouble with my computer lately; specifically, the desktop will disappear and show nothing but my background, then reappear, but some things in the taskbar tray will be gone, including Norton.

The changed files are normal. It happens when you update certain parts of Windows and when the system repairs files.

Evening Partygoers,
 Just did a clean install of XP Pro. After the install I came across the Kernel32.dll error message (when I was trying install AVG and Chrome). Thinking that there may have been a mistake on the install I did another clean install. Still the same thing so I ran the repair and still nothing.
  Using Explorer was almost impossible because I was coming across another .dll error but I updated Java and that has helped tremendously. Cannot update flash player. When I go to the webpage the middle of the screen in blank and that is where I would download flashplayer (the rest of the page is there, just not the most important part).
  Have tried to install SP3, last night when I was able to get to the webpage to download and install the PC just simply rebooted itself. Tonight the webpage would just freeze.
  The main issue, at least I think so, is the Kernel32.  Like I said this is a new, clean install.
  One last quick note, the  mshtml.dll would be the error which would cause the webpage to freeze and stop responding.
  Thank you in advance for your time and advice.

Kernel32.dll is the first application to ask permission as soon as i get on line, and it shows in Connection Details in Port 138 (UDP) and 139 (TCP).I have blocked its requests on a day to day basis until now,as i am unsure whether a perennial block could pose problems of sorts.Is there a reason i shouldnt block it altogether?
thanks nanino


Hi nanino,

This sounds like a virus. There are several that masquerade as kernel32.

Either run an uptodate virus scan with your own AV or go here and run the online scan.

Once done could you please download Hijack This! from here. Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan". When the scan is finished, click "Save Log", and copy and paste it in a reply.

This will give us a rundown of whatís going on in your PC. One of us here will be glad to analyse it for you. Donít fix anything yourself yet, as a lot of the stuff on that list will be harmless or required.

Hi I need some help
all of a sudden today my desktop changed into an html file that Says System Stopped in a black box with a horrible bright blue font in the background.
In my Systems folder I have a kernels32.exe that I imagine is the problem.
Also my Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del is not working it says my administrator has blocked it)
Besides this I also keep getting a Spy Ware Cleaner some sort of program that installs itself and I keep uninstalling it and everytime I restart it pops up again. Also my Norton Antivirus detects no virus when I run a full system scan, but when I restart it pops up and finds tons of them automatically , I'm assuming these virus/trojans or whatever pop up after a program initiates them. I've downloaded the Hijack program in hopes someone can help me. I'm very good with computers and have never had a problem before, but after trying with msconfig, regedit, and safe mode I have had no success please if someone can help me would be great.

Oh my god. Look at Process information of kernel32.exe If you think that is weird keep reading. It says it is part of Windows, does that mean every windows machine is a living virus? Is there a way to break kernel32.exe away from windows? Or keep it there? This is quite weird to me, I would never expect a required dll to be a virus. But, you never know...and anyway what is a a kernel? Why are they important anyway?

Hi folks, I have AVG anti-virus (http://free.grisoft.com/) and when it does its daily scheduled scan (which is normally when when I turn the PC on for the first time that day) it always says that kernel32.dll has "changed".

A:Avg Keeps Saying Kernel32.dll Has "changed"...

Reported changes in system files such as kernel32.dll, wsock32.dll, user32.dll, shell32.dll and ntosknrl.exe are normal for AVG.There are many valid reasons for those files to show changed, a Windows update, file system check that replaced them if corrupted, and others. As long as AVG doesn't say they are infected it is ok. If it continues to show changed, delete the following file(s) in the C:\ directory and AVG will create a new one(s)...AVG7DB_F.DAT, AVG7QT.DATkernel32.dll, wsock32.dll, user32.dll, shell32.dll and ntosknrl.exe have "changed"It is normal that AVG shows that files, the MBR or Boot record to have changed. These are done during normal maintainance, when you or windows updates files or have had to correct errors on the drive. The only time that you should worry is if they also show as infected.To get AVG to quit showing them as changed, open the AVG Test Center, click the F3 key on your keyboard and tell it to accept the changes. If it still shows something as changed after this.. delete the file named AVG7QT.DAT in the %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\avg7\ folder and AVG will rebuild it the next time it is run.The %ALLUSERSPROFILE% is different for each version of Windows. The following are the typical locations for XP and Win9xXP - C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\avg7Win9x -C:\Windows\All Users\Application Data\avg7Changed File Alerts

I get this intermittently in my document, which is opened and regenerated using VBA. I am using Word 2000, and the document only contains textboxes. I am using Windows 98SE. I have tried redoing the document from scratch, deleting normal.dot, deleting tilde and temp files, reinstalling the printer drivers (it possibly occurs when the print button is pressed), but it still occurs.

Have you used SFC and scanned for altered/corrupt files? This may help more than you may think. System Tools, System Information, on the Tools menu, go to "System File Checker"

Hope that helps,

I have been trying to load an old game for my husband, Starfleet Command, and I have been getting an error message stating "The procedure entry point SUnMapLS_IP_EBP_20 could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll"

If someone could guide me to a fix for the problem I would be appreciative. The program's maker Interplay is no longer offering tech support.

Well I've recently been trying to play a game, but it seems -- well I'm not sure. Everything is installed correctly, so I figure it may be some adware/spyware/malware/virus/trojan. I'm on Windows XP & I've already ran SS&D.

I can't believe I have the same exact problem at the same time!!

No other scanners are picking up on this.

My system was infected by other virus/mal-spyware issues that were resolved.

System is running stable.

Anybody know if this is a false positive?

It's your Norton Anti-Virus program with a problem. Easiest thing to do would probably uninstall and then reinstall Norton AV.


ccapp.exe is a process belonging to Norton AntiVirus. It is responsible for the auto-protect and email checking facilities, both of which will not function correctly if this service is stopped. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.

A:KERNEL32.DLL problem

I bought a refurbished Dell optiplex (terrible idea) that's had some serious problems with the reloaded windows it came with. I performed a virus scan with Avira Antivir PE and it found a figurative ton of viruses. One infected file was kernel32.dll, and not knowing better, I authorized the program to delete it. Now i get a blue screen at startup that says: stop: c0000135 {unable to locate component} which is apparently kernel32.dll. I got this computer refurbished and reloaded with windows, and I don't think I ever got a reboot disk. How do I get a copy of kernel32.dll to replace so I can into windows again?

Any help would be REALLY appreciated.

Thanks alot,

You will need an XP CD. You can then try to perform a Repair. But if it's infected, I'd just format and reinstall from scratch.

Trying to install TweakUI in Win XP and get the following message.

"The procedure entry point GetDirectoryW could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNE32.dll."

Downloaded a new TweakUI.exe file from Windows PowerToys site thinking perhaps the file I had on CD was corrupted, but no joy.

KERNEL32.dll is, in fact, present in the system 32 folder. So I don't know what the problem is. I suspect the existing file may be corrupted. Any thoughts on downloading a new KERNEL32.dll file and replacing the existing one? If so, anyone have a link to do so?

Any other thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.

BTW... I just finished a format and clean install of XP on this system.

Last month my brother had downloaded few games but non of them worked because of dll errors. First i thought its because they were downloaded from pirate sites. But now, i am getting 2 dll errors when i launch World of Tanks (game that was downloaded from official site). I have never had before such an issue with that game but regardless those errors i was still able to play it. Now i have downloaded another game (from official site too) and when i try to launch it, error happens. It says "The procedure entry point GetLogicalProcessorInformation could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll."

I tried to re-register the file but it failed. It said the file was loaded but the DllRegisterServer entry point was not found. I would appreciate if someone would help me fix this problem.
