delete temp files rundll32.exe not responding
deleting temp files doesn't quit running. Turning off Win XP causes several
apps to end--except rundll32.exe. I get message it is not responding. I
click on ending it.
I can restart ok. Same thing happens again. I can find the file doing a
search. If the file is messed up--how do I replace it?

HiAndrew, Thanks for your reply. My problem was that I could not run disk

RE: delete temp files rundll32.exe not responding
Hi, Thanks for your reply and help. What finally worked was running
ccleaner. I can't believe it removed 1,507.5 MB of stuff. Took 6923
seconds. I was in the habit of deleting history and cookies, etc every week
or so. It puzzles me where ccleaner found all the stuff to delete.
