Windows Host Process Rundll32

Q: Windows Host Process Rundll32

Hello all.

I'm pretty sure I have some sort of a virus. Here are the "symptoms."

- Flashing window at on the task bar that is titled "Windows Host Process Rundll32 is requesting your permission."

I can't seem to shake it. Here is what I've tried.

1) I've run the "rkill" and it still keeps on flashing.
2) I've run Malware Bytes and it still keeps coming back.

3) I've then gone into safe mode, and tried the whole procedure over again, but it still keeps coming back.

If any of you have any ideas, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks.

Sony Vaio Laptop - Vista. I have contacted Sony Vaio help about this but apparently it is outside their scope and they suggest contacting microsoft....which I tried but it costs ?46 a pop...is that right?


Anyway I have downloaded video footage from two different Sony Handycams and when they open on the computer a message pops up

Windows Host Process (Rundll32) has stopped working. Click it off and it continually pops up again.

Also when I listen to live radio, LBC or BBC, their players load but there is no sound. It used to work fine. LBC site suggest downloading the latest version of Windows Media Player, but I already have the latest version.

I would appreciate any help please. Thanks in anticipation.

Greetings clever people!
I hope all is well with you and yours.
Lately I've come across a very strange entry that I've never seen before when I've gone through msconfig. It's the appearance of Windows Host Process Rundll32. I know what it is, but what I want to know is, why is it even in the startup procedure according to what programs launch at startup. It seems highly strange to me, and I'm not entirely sure if I should actually disable this from the startup list. I'm usually pretty comfortable with disabling programs from launching at startup, but I'm very wary of this one. Any thoughts on this one?

I'm running Windows 7 and I have ESET Smart Security 4 as my antivirus program. Everyday, ESET has a pop-up stating that Windows Host Process (Rundll32) is trying to reach a remote computer at IP address 65.55.7.141 on port 80. Apparently my virus program thinks this could be a security concern so it is giving me the opportunity to allow the action to occur or to deny it. I checked the IP location and it is from the Netherlands. I cant think of any reason why a computer from the Netherlands would be pinging me everyday. I do use bitorrent on a regular basis so it could be some one whom i served files to in the pass trying to bother me. Anyways, I would appreciate any advice or info about whether or not this is anything to be concerned with.

Thanks in Advance,

An elderly friend is having slowdown issues on her computer.  It is a custom built machine with plenty of processor, RAM etc.  She is running 64-bit Windows 8 - and loving it, by the way.  She sent me a list of what is in her startup programs and I see the Windows Host Process listed at startup.  I do not have this in my startup...  it indicated that it is a "medium" user of resources.  She is extremely vigilant about her anti-virus scans (using the default Windows Defender and Malwarebytes Pro).
 
The myriad of hits on Googling this question has only raised more questions for me.  Any thoughts on this being in her startup programs?  Can it safely be disabled?  I'm usually ruthless about disabling stuff in startup, but she lives halfway across the country and I don't want to hose her computer.

A:Windows Host Process rundll32 in Startup

It could be anything. If you run process explorer and double-click on the rundll32.exe process, under the Image tab you can see the full command line for the program and the DLL that is being launched. If you can provide that info, I can tell you if its legit or not. C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe is a legitimate programs, but what it is launching may not be.

Greetings,

I am in need of some assistance about the Windows host process (Rundll32). Just today as I was looking through my icons in my taskbar on my standard account, I noticed that there was a process labeled "Windows host process (Rundll32)" and I don't remember ever seeing it before (if not maybe once). But after doing some research, I did the following:

1.) I did a search in my Disk Drive and noticed that the only Rundll32 files on my computer were the ones that are with my amd processor, the default windows location files, and Malwarebytes Pro.

2.) I have done numerous full, quick, and flash scans with Malwarebytes Pro and Microsoft Security Essentials but nothing is detected.

3.) I have tried going into safemode, but it still appears in the list,

4. I logged on into the Administrator account, and noticed that the process labeled "Windows host process (Rundll32)" is not on the list anywhere (I only use the Administrator account for installing programs only, nothing else. I use a standard account for everything else).

5.) After reading some research, I noticed that it could be some of the programs I have installed on my computer that maybe using it. However; I can not determine which ones it could be. Here is the list of the programs I have installed and what the taskbar looks like.

Determining If RunDll32.exe Is Legitimate or Malicious
Search all drives in Windows for any duplicates of RunDll32.exe. The legitimate copy of RunDll32.exe can be found in \Windows\System32\rundll32.exe. Any other copies should be deleted. The Windows Task Manager can also determine any malicious copies of the file; press ctrl-alt-del to run the task manager, click the "processes" tab and hover the mouse over all instances of RunDll32.exe. The true identity of all malicious copies will show up.

Hello there!

I've recently been encountering a 'Windows host process (Rundll32)' problem from time to time in my windows task manager and it is using up a huge amount of memory (1,000,000K and more) and its slowing up my computer a HUGE deal when this problem does occur, there's this extreme lag that happens randomly. When I try to end the process, it doesn't even go away!

Eventually, I thought it was a registry problem so I purchased ARO 2011 online to clean out my system. I fully scanned my computer and fixed around 3000 errors successfully. I thought that might have solved the problem but nope, the problem still occurs quite often.

I just don't know what to do. Can anyone here help me? If I can fix this problem that would be great!

Thank you!

Greetings and Welcome to The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your malware problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.

Hi,

I was on the internet the other day and must have clicked on a bad link. Immediately after clicking the link, my PC starting popping up Windows Host Process prompts asking me to authorize Rundll32. This prompt has been ever-present ever since. I will close it but it will open back up immediately. In addition, all internet traffic is being redirected. If I go to google (or any web page), my PC is now automatically redirecting me to a generic web page about Rundll32. If I leave the PC alone for a while, I come back to multiple open internet windows all redirected to that same web site. I think I accidentally ran across some malware or something. I have run the Hijackthis log and the other logs that were requested. Please let me know if I need to provide any additional info. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Just a quick update:

I downloaded, updated, and ran Ad-Aware, Malwarebytes, Spybot, and SuperAntiSpyWare Free Edition. I was able to remove quite a few critical threats. I also went to msconfig and disabled some startup programs that have "Rundll32" in the title. After running all those programs though, the programs are still there, they're just not starting up when I turn my computer on. After doing all of this, my internet is no longer being redirected and the Windows Process Error is not appearing but the computer is definitely lagging and showing double windows occasionally. Screens are getting stuck and parts of screens are sticking on my desktop after I close down Mozilla.

Hi, got a malware/trojan problem. Been trying to get rid of it but the problem still sticks around.I'm running Windows Vista 32 bit. Downloaded something and ran it and the icon just disappeared. I kind of know that was a malware or trojan of some sort. I have Symantec AntiVirus 10.2.0.276 on my computer. The auto protection popped up and detected a W32.Virut.CF and a bunch Packed.Generic.233. They were cleaned by deletion by Symantec.From that point on, Symantec would pop up every once in a while saying Auto-Protect has found Packed.Generic.233 and performed action - cleaned by deletion. Filename would be C:\Windows\SericeProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\Temp\VRTXXXX.tmp where XXXX are alpha numerics that varies. In addition, when I open some directory or click on Mouse Pointers, Theme, Display Settings, etc. in Control Panel/Personalization, the following error would pop up - "Windows host process (Rundll32) has stopped working"I googled around for that problem and some said they had that problem and it was caused by nero or their dvd rom, or some cd burning software, or some video editting software.

I've been having a few problems with my computer's sound, a while ago, i kept getting the

"Windows host process (Rundll32) has stopped working" at start up, and Realtek HD audio manager(came with the Dell XPS 15) crashes everytime i put my hand near that button (its right next to the mute button and is very sensitive).

I reinstalled my sound card drivers and it fixed the rundll32 problem and the Realtek Hd audio manager is working, but now every time i play a sound, eg Youtube/Game/music or even Windows sounds, it sounds like a broken tape recorder with some slight static and just seems to lag. Im pretty sure my computer can actually handle all the things ive been doing, at least they were working fine before, but this is getting more frequent.

I ran malwarebyte's antimalware, but that seems to crash just before it finishes and my computer goes with it. So im not too sure what to do here.

I am considering just restoring the computer back to factory settings, but i havent backed up my files yet. any suggestions?

Okay, so I've been an unhappy user of Windows Vista for nearly two years now. Aside from having to put up with a disk check every time I boot up my computer (anybody know why this is?), the worst problem is MY COMPUTER HAS NO SOUND! The speakers work fine; that I know. It beeps every time there is an error (which is ALOT).

I have tried to reactivate windows sound service on my computer, but every single time I try it comes up with an error. The infamous Windows host process (rundll32) has stopped working. This has been this way for about four months now and I'm really put up with it. My dad (the administrator of the computer) doesn't give a *(expletive)* about how poorly our computer runs, and whenever I try to fiddle around with it he won't even type in the admin password for stuff.

Well I finally figured the password out, so access to any part of the computer is open to me, but anything that I have to pay for is not. I can't pay to install any of that amazing "just press this" software (such as Regcure) because I don't have paypal or anything.

I have tried that thing where you go to 'msconfig' and manually check and see which program is causing the problem (that process where you have to restart your computer 3 dozen times) and it doesn't have anything to do with any of those programs. It has nothing to do with Nero. That isn't installed on the computer.

Sometimes its only one instance with a cap at usuing 20% of my cpu, which is still rediculous and slows the pc down. Then sometimes theres multiple like shown in the picture.

Hi everyone:

Every time I try to open the security center in Windows Vista Home Premium (updated) I get a pop up with the message "Windows host process (Rundll32) has stopped working". I've googled for many hours in search for a solution but none of the common ones worked for me, also I made a search in this forum but once again, no luck. So far I know this:

1.- I don't have Nero installed
2.- I don't have any problem with the thumbnails
3.- I disabled -with msconfig- all the non-Microsoft services (and most of the Microsoft ones, except for the essentials to run, the error reporting service and the security center service) and it didn't work.
4.- It seems that this is the only action that causes the error as I don't have problems with explorer, other control panel elements or videos/images.
5.- I made a scan with nod32 (last version, updated) and with spybot but it was clean.
6.- RealPlayer was installed in this computer (version 6.0.14.748), no other players or codecs have been installed.
7.- A user reported in other forum a similar problem when Norton 2007 was unistalled and I know that Norton (unknown version, perhaps also 2007) was uninstalled from this computer too.
8.- I ran CCleaner and jv16 PowerTools (last version for both) but the problem persists

Hi,

I have a Sony VAIO VGN-SR190E laptop computer, purchassed in December 2008. I have Windows Vista Service Pack 2 installed, and I have most of the updates installed--save for IE 8 and the Microsoft Office 2007 SP that was released a month or so ago.

Anyway, I use screen-reading software (I am blind), and at times I need to change the system's text-to-speech voice for use with certain aplications (mainly the accessible iPod feature in iTunes, which uses the system's text-to-speech voice to generate spoken menus for the iPod), and for the last few months I have been unable to do anything in the control pannel>text to speech settings. I have three SAPI5 voices installed on my system, but none of them show up in the voice selection combo box. When I click the voice selection settings button, I get this error message: "Windows host process (Rundll32) has stopped
working
Windows is checking for a solution to the problem..."
My only option is to close the message and then I end up back n the control pannel.

I have looked on Google for general rundll32 errors, and most of the forum topics I have found surround video software and such with Vista. In the c:\windows\winsxs folder, I have two files with names that include "rundll32", starting with "x86_microsoft-windows-rundll32...".

I have had this issue with flash player since May when they introduced Flash Player 10 (May Release) with the new settings Manager that can be accessed from your own control panel. However I have never been able to use because as soon as i click on it it crashes and causes an error host32.dll has stopped working. I have tried all the obvious Solutions, uninstall/reinstall/clear cache.

None of these have worked for me so I have kept digging and today I noticed that Clashplayer CPLApp that appears to control this new control panel settings manager has a weird location in properties relating to 'google chrome' On my other system XP: I dont have this issue it works perfectly and the location of the file is C:Windows\ system 32.
Google Chrome was loaded on the system when I got it, it has never been used by me and now saya no up-to-date files. So I havent changed anything there. Flashplayer worked fine until May and I have always used IE8 on both XP and vista. Vista makes me scratch my head until I have a bald patch!!
Where has this google location come from and what can I do about it.... all suggestions welcomed... Do I rename the location, delete it, uninstall chrome??????Thank you. If you need any specific information, please ask and I will Edit accordingly

Hey everyone,

When i try to run movieclips i get the message "Windows Host process "RunDLL32" has stopped working.

Should i just ignore this message considering the fact that the movieclip still play, or is there a way to fix it.

i can post a hijackthis logfile if need be, also please let me know if you require me to post "silent scanner" logfile

Yours faithfully

Well, I feel pretty stupid right now.

Recently I was moving a bunch of files onto a new hard drive, when my system would try to load the thumbnails of some, I would get the error in the subject, and so assumed the file was corrupt, and deleted it, later downloading a fresh copy.

The fresh copies however give me the same error, which of course restarts explorer. The files themselves have worked before, and are from reasonably reputable sites, I doubt they're the issue.

It occurred to me that when this error would occur, the little Matroska symbol would be flashing like mad, and after posting on another forum, decided my best bet would be to uninstall the codec pack with Matroska.

Unfortunately, I believe I did the exact opposite of what I wanted to. I may have uninstalled every codec except ffdshow, matroska, haali splitter, etc, as the error was still present after the restart, but the folder was empty.

The only difference seems to be that explorer just restarts without the error message.

Exactly what are the system specs and do you have a Vista disk.

You may need to run the system file checker and it could require the system disk.

In regards to your immediate issue I would recommend doing a system restore to a day prior to this event so that it can be undone and then we can look into it further and possibly determine what the issue is.
