How do I fix: rundll32.exe has performed

By andrew.s.casella ·
When trying to use my modem on my Micron Millenium P150, I get the error message rundll32.exe has performed an illegal operation...
I have tried deleting the file, running scan disk, defrag, and reloading Windows 95. No success. I am trying to avoid doing a complete format and then having to reload everyting. Clicking details yields the following: RUNDLL32 caused an invalid page fault in module KRNL386.EXE at 0002:0000564c.
I hope this is enough info to get help. Thanks in advance.

First don't delete Run32dll.exe. You need it to run Windows. Try this go to your Control Panel/System/Device Manager/Modem and delete your modem. Reboot and Windows should detect it. Choose to install your drivers manually. I.E. pick the "have disk"option. Once installed if not prompted to, reboot. After boot starts enter CMOS and diable Serial Port 2 (COM2). Then exit w/save. If this doesn't fix the problem then a critical file is corrupted and you need to install Windows again. Don't wipe your hard drive just go to setup and reinstall. Windows will replace the bad or missing files from your system.

There is a kernel.exe update that is good for Win95. It might be just what thew doctor ordered.

Don't delete rundll32.exe; this is a system file needed by Windows. This is most likely coming from a corrupt .dll. The first thing to do would be to reinstall the communications components of Windows. See Microsoft Knowledge Base Article ID: Q181599.

Its sounds as though a modem file has been corrupted. Go to your device manager and remove the modem. Reboot and reinstall the drivers when asked to. Now try using the modem. Everything should be fine.

Reload Windows from your hard drive. First copy the win95 folder from the CD to your hard drive. Then go into the win95 directory on your hard drive and create a file called msbatch.inf by typing "edit msbatch.inf" when you press return you will get the blue edit screen then you type these words exactly llike this
[Setup]
Producttype=1
after the 1 press return, then chose file and exit and save the file, then restart the machine in the dos mode and run setup from the win95 directory. This will allow you to keep all of your current windows settings and programs, but will replace all Windows working files. It will keep you from having to reload programs and drivers that is associated with new win95 loads. I have corrected this problem with this method several times. Good Luck. Joe
