  • Hi,

    Please click Start-> Run. Type command and press Enter. Type notepad and press Enter.
    Copy all the text below:
     
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
     [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\open\command]
     @="\"%1\" %*"

    Save this as fix.reg to your Desktop (remember to select Save as file type: All files in Notepad.)
    Double Click fix.reg and click YES for confirm.
    Reboot the computer.

    Regards,

  • if the problem just started, then its possible the application is corrupted, try system restore(start>all programs>accessories>system tools> system restore) and see of it works.

  • I have windows 7 32 bit and my computer says c:\windows\system32\rundll32.exe application not found. When opening any program it can't ind the program file and have to search for the file manually. I am unable to do a system restore to an earlier date because it can't find the application. Where can I find this file?
