I looked up rundll.exe on the Startup List and it says it's bad in all cases, but i've had it after a couple different formats, and everything is running fine. what could it be? i think process explorer says that it's linked to something with nVidea (i have a 7900 GS)

Actually, if you look at the leftmost column, that is the actual bad process that is linked to rundll.exe NVidia drivers use rundll.exe.

Use process explorer to figure which application rundll is actually running, and them you can determine if that application is a virus or trojan.

Hope this explains enough Warning One of my links: http://www.eggheadcafe.com/articles/20060702.asp

ok, good. i went ahead and killed the process anyway, but i'm sure it's safe then since it's always there and i haven't had any PC problems or infections in a while.
