I think something happened while downloading IE8 into my kid's PC (XP Home), my son stopped it in the middle to do something else (I think) anyway, now my blue bar on top only has the logo on the left, the minimize, downsize and close on the right, Next, the tool bar with File, Edit,...is gone completely, the next toolbar with Add favorites, Home, Read mail....also gone!
When I right click on IE in the Start menu to open Properties, nothing happens, also when I try to open or right click on Internet Options in the Control Panel, nothing happens.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. I also tried to fix IE settings at MS IE.com but nothing downloads or happens.

Yes, I figure I have either a Rogue or a Virus, now I can not even open Word!

Edit: Because of the above quote in post 11, moved topic from Web Browsing/Email and Other Internet Applications to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

mangacharo,

Go to your ADD/REMOVE programs remove it and then reinstall it. See if that works.

I can not open Add/Remove Programs, I get a window saying that rundll32.exe does not exist or something like that, I am going nuts over this.

mangacharo,

Sounds like more than an IE problem might want to post XP forum or Am I infected and get the right help.

Start your IE, press F11 (one or two times) or right click the Toolbar on the top of the browser above the address and select Menu Bar .

Alt + V will open the View menu where you can uncheck Full Screen or select Toolbars >Menu Bar.

That machine was a gift with no disks, I have two disks, both "Reinstallation CD", one is like wine color and the other is light purple, which one should I use?

This is what it says to do: Put the Windows XP CD ROM disk in the CD ROM drive.
Click Start, and then click Run.
Type expand X:\i386\rundll32.ex_ c:\windows\system32\rundll32.exe in the Open box, where X is the letter of your CD ROM Drive.
Restart the computer.

OK, so if my CD drive is d, I should type expandd:\i386\......? It looks like there is a space between the expand and the x? Sorry, PC's are not my thing, I sell bricks!

OK, did that but when I click on Open, I get this message: WDWS cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access.

Type the follwoing if you can borrow installation CD from friends :

expand D:\i386\rundll32.ex_ c:\windows\system32\rundll32.exe

expand space D:\i386\rundll32.ex_ space c:\windows\system32\rundll32.exe


This issue occurs because of a missing or corrupted Rundll32.exe file. This issue may also be caused by a virus.

You need to ensure that your system is clean, all clean, nothing but clean first. :thumbsup:

Do not sy that again, I am about to throw the PC in a river and then add soap to get it cleaned up while it sinks!
