Is kernel32.dll Good or bad?

Q: Is kernel32.dll Good or bad?

My Firewall which is Sygate Personal Firewall says kernel32.dll is trying to connect to a broadcast. Should I let this access the internet? Should I delete this file with Hijack? Is this file okay?
This is the details Sygate gives me:
File Version : 4.90.3000
File Description : Win32 Kernel core component (kernel32.dll)
File Path : C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\kernel32.dll
Process ID : 0xFF0F8C9B (Heximal) 4279209115 (Decimal)

Connection origin : remote initiated
Protocol : UDP
Local Address : 255.255.255.255
Local Port : 68 (BOOTPC - Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol [DHCP] Client)
Remote Name :
Remote Address : 10.36.96.1

Thanks!

Preferred Solution: Is kernel32.dll Good or bad?

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.)

Hi Joy,

Do you run a home network? The file path is genuine, so don't delete it. Could you post your HJT! log, and we acn see what's going on.

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
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q300179

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.

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?
 

A:kernel32.dll

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.

http://www.lavasoftusa.com/

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

http://housecall.antivirus.com/pc_housecall/

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.

Hello,
I have just uninstalled a demo copy of Trend Micro internet security in order to use a different anti-virus program. After the uninstall was complete and the computer rebooted, I tried to access my C: directory with "My Computer" and an error popped up that was from Windows Script Host.

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.

A:Kernel32.dll

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.

Cheers

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.

Whenever I try to start up an up, such as MSN Messenger, Xfire, Worms World Party, I always get this error :

The procedure entry point Makecriticalsectionglobal could not be found in the dynamic link library Kernel32.dll

I've tried :

1) Going to dll-files.com to replace my dll, didn't work
2) Going to dlldump.com to replace my dll, didn't work again.
3) Replace from my own dll cache, and didn't work.

It's really annoying, can someone help me?

A:Kernel32.dll Prob

This error explains a problem with accessing kernel32.dll. It could be a problem with that dll, or it could be a problem with the way that another program tries to access the Makecriticalsectionglobal entry point.The most common cures for this "generic" error (we'd need more info to pin it down) are:1) Scan your system for malware ( free at http://safety.live.com/ )2) Visit Windows Update and obtain all the latest updates3) Update your motherboard/chipset drivers4) Update your video card driver5) Ensure that you Direct X is updated ( http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...6a-9b6652cd92a3 )

Hi.

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.

Hi, Whenever i sign on to AIM and try to instant message someone or recieve and instant message, i get signed off and the program is ended. An error has occurred appears and when i click more info, the error has to do with kernel32.dll. When i click more info this appears...

AppName: aim.exe AppVer: 5.9.3702.0 ModName: kernel32.dll
ModVer: 5.1.2600.1106 Offset: 00016b97

and when i click on more info, this appears as part of the error report

C:\DOCUME~1\home\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER1CD.tmp.dir00\appcompat.txt

I don't know what the problem could possibly be since I've uninstalled Aim and reinstalled it and the problem is still there. The error always has shown up on aim since the first time that it occurred about a week ago. It hasn't shown up on any other programs except for one time on MSN. Besides that it hasn't shown up anywhere else besides AIM.

I keep getting an error message when i try to install Skype after i download it. The error report says that there is a Kernel32.dll error and I would just like to know what it is and how I can fix it, because Skype support has been absolutely no help.
 

A:Kernel32.dll ERROR

I believe it has nothing to do with Skype but your computer rather. Kernel has to do with operating systems I was told before. So it may not be Skype.

A:Error in KERNEL32.DLL

Hi,

Try going to Start, Settings, Control Panel. Then open up Add/Remove Programs, and click on Internet Explorer, then click on Add/Remove. When prompted, click on Repair Internet Explorer, and click OK.

If this doesn't fix the problem, then you might need to look at the possibility that another program that's running in the background may be causing the error.

A:Replace Kernel32.dll

You cannot replace system files readily in XP, they are protected by System File Protection.

I don't know what the real problem is, but there are TWO different versions of kernel32.dll in XP, the second, and larger version is for XP SP2

SP2: 5.1.2600.2180

Prior: 5.1.2600.0

Which version of Windows do you have?
