    Bat lazy so he'll copy and paste the following Rundll32.exe is a Windows operating system component responsible for running certain aspects of applications like Internet Explorer. However, Rundll32.exe is also the name of a virus. By impersonating legitimate software, the virus hopes to get you to delete an important file from your computer by mistake. For this reason, you should use a tool on your computer to remove the virus. It will delete the impostor and leave the real file.

    First run full scans with your anti-virus as well as Malwarebytes and Superantispyware to see if there's any malware. Next you can run an Admin CMD prompt of sfc /scannow to see if there's any corrupted files that need repair. You can also Rt click on each entry and goto properties and check for the Microsoft Digital Signature and Details.
