RUNDLL error


Recommended Posts

I am also having same problem with following error:

RUNDLL

Error loading ~$WF.FAT32

The specified module could not be found.

This is happening when I connect flash drive to my system. A shortcut is getting created

and when I double click it to open, above mentioned error occurs.

How can I avoid this? Is this some kind of malware?

Hello and :welcome:

Please run the following scanner and send back the logs so we can see if we can tell what's going on.

Download DDS from one of the locations below and save to your Desktop

dds.scr

dds.com

Temporarily disable any script blocker if your Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware has it.

How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

Once downloaded you can disconnect from the Internet and disable your Ant-Virus temporarily if needed.

Then double click dds.scr or dds.com to run the tool, on Vista or Win 7 right click and select Run as administrator

Click the Run button if prompted with an Open File - Security Warning dialog box.

A black DOS console should open and run for a moment.


  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
  1. DDS.txt
  2. Attach.txt

  • Save both reports to your desktop
  • Please include the following logs in your next reply: DDS.txt and Attach.txt
    You can ignore the note about zipping the Attach.txt file in most cases.

Thanks for the logs, it seems like there is more going on with this computer that could be due to an infection, previous infection, or a hardware/software conflict. It will be better to have one of the experts help you sort it out.

Please see the following pinned topic which has information on how to get help with this: Available Assistance for Possibly Infected Computers

Thank you

Yes please make a post in the Malware Removal Forum section.... The exact nature of your problem is hard to tell with only the info we have at this point. The experts will have you run some tools and you will provide those logs and they can further assist you and let you know what's going on. It maybe hard to tell exactly why it happened but rest assured if they can pin point it they will let you know.

It's a case where a LNK file or a registry load statement calls RUNDLL32.EXE to load a function from a Dynamic Link Library (DLL) file. The file does not exist so RUNDLL32 generates a ERROR LOADING XXXXX message.

This is often a sign where a malicious DLL was found and deleted but the loading LNK or Registry location calling RUNDLL32 was not removed and is a sign of a past or present malware infection.
