I've found a registry entry that I consider to be suspect and I cannot delete or modify it.

 

Entry: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{e3a4e5ca-55b2-4a06-b1ab-8fbecc7bca4b}\LocalServer32
Valuename:
Value: rundll32.exe /sta {fcc2867c-69ea-4d85-8058-7c214e611c97}
Reason: The default value in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/CLSID/{e3a4e5ca-55b2-4a06-b1ab-8fbecc7bca4b}/LocalServer32 points to the missing file rundll32.exe /sta {fcc2867c-69ea-4d85-8058-7c214e611c97}

 

I'm familiar, though not proficient, with changing permisions on an entry and was unable to do so.

 

Any idea what this might be?

 

Thanks

This is normal.

 

Entry: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{e3a4e5ca-55b2-4a06-b1ab-8fbecc7bca4b}\LocalServer32
Valuename:
Value: rundll32.exe /sta {fcc2867c-69ea-4d85-8058-7c214e611c97}

 

However, this is not normal...

 

Reason: The default value in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/CLSID/{e3a4e5ca-55b2-4a06-b1ab-8fbecc7bca4b}/LocalServer32 points to the missing file rundll32.exe /sta {fcc2867c-69ea-4d85-8058-7c214e611c97}

 

It seems your rundll32.exe file is missing. Did you delete it or something?

I did not delete the file you asked about.  The Windows 8.1 installation is farely recent.

 

I'll see if I can find a copy of rundll32.exe in my stores.

 

 

 

I've just located rundll32.exe in Windows\SysWOW64. 

 

Is this is the proper location on an x64 system.  I've located a few comments saying otherwise.
