Hi and welcome.

rundll32.exe is a process which executes DLL's and places their libraries into the memory, so they can be used more efficiently by applications. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.

Note: rundll32.exe is a process registered as a backdoor vulnerability which may be installed for malicious purposes by an attacker allowing access to your computer from remote locations, stealing passwords, Internet banking and personal data. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system.

This is strange, this might be a malware :thumbsup: or it might just be some promblem with the rundll32.exe
I would run a scan and see what the scanners find. DON'T remove rundll32.exe, because it is most likely a legitimate file.


Great that you figured it out. Can you tell us how you fixed the promblem?
