I have deleted my rundll32.exe files because they were replaced by a virus that I managed to remove, and now I need the original rundll32.exe file. Does anyone have it for Windows 10?
 

Thanks.

If the rundll32.exe file was not found in the following path it is not legitimate, it probably was the product of a virus.  What did you do to clean this computer of infections?

 

C:\Windows\System32
 

 

If the file which you deleted was not found in the file path deleting it will not effect the operating system.

SFC and/or DISM should also take care of restoring this file if it is missing or damaged, I believe.

Okay I have run dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth to repair the SFC command and then ran a sfc /scannow command.

Both of the operations completed successfully and my original rundll32.exe file has been restored.

Which is great because the malware-infected one made a ton of instances in my Task Manager each with 1.1 MB of RAM, killing my PC.

 

Now everything is fine. NVIDIA Installer works perfectly, all the viruses and malware/adware I had were cleaned and all my corrupted system files were restored.

 

Thanks for the suggestions.

You're quite welcome.  I'm glad the situation is resolved and that no one had to supply you with what you needed other than Microsoft.
