  1. Hi all, I've been in quite the pickle. Yesterday morning I got a mcAfee notification pop up that said "we've scanned your download and it's safe!" or similar, and this was "rundll32.exe" now, I know this is a system file and I had not downloaded anything while this occured, I wish I had taken a screenshot. To be safe I did a lot of different processes. First, I did a scannow on system32, all clear, nothing unusual there, I did a Mcafee full scan and it detected nothing, and Malwarebytes did not either. When I tried Windows Safety Scanner, this baffled me- it found 5 infected files on my e

  3. starting yesterday, rundll32.exe has been running in the background and using between 10-25% of CPU I completed malwarebytes scan and nothing came up as a virus so I'm guessing its not from a virus I checked on Process Explorer and the command line for rundll32.exe running is "rundll32.exe msvcrt.dll,_sleep" From what I've read online, it seem that msvcrt.dll is corrupted I don't know how to fix it This is a win 2012 server (new) and has sql & IIS running on it. I had built one of these in a VM for testing and I do not have the same rundll32.exe msvcrt.dll,_sleep running in the
  4. Hello, I am a gamer and yesterday my ping was too high when i was playing online games. then i looked at the programs running behind and saw 2 rundll32 exes ( rundll32 *32 from directory C:\Windows\SysWOW64 and rundll32 from directory C:\Windows\System32) and they were using too much resource from ram. then i checked what is using my internet and saw rundll32 is trying to connect too many ip'es. i had only avira antivirus program and it didnt give me any reports about this problem. later i installed mbam and it began to block some of this ip'es but not all of them. here are some of this i
  5. So i'm 14, sure i have alot of crap on my computer, but i use my 2008 HP Elitebook 6930p to game, and normally dont have a problem! But whenever I open a game (Counter-Strike, CoD4, Path of Exile, Ect) A process named rundll32.exe (Located in C:\Windows\SysWOW64) Opens. I have patched my computer so therefor i have more "access" to it, therefor i can even change my theme to a custom theme, but i never had this problem. I also installed COMODO and Deleted Mcafee, thats when this problem started. Before all of this, i had a problem that would open PING.EXE and start causing ping issues, especial
  6. Hello, recently i've noticed that as time goes by rundll32.exe starts to gradually taking up a lot of my memory, it even took up 800k of my memory at one point. Usually just restarting fixes the problem but it starts to gradually get larger again. I also noticed that their were 2 of rundll32.exe in my task manager, one stays low while the other takes a lot of my memory. I've scanned with malwarebytes and avast yet nothing comes up as a virus or malware. I've looked around and havn't found a solution, if anyone could help it'd be greatly appreciated.
