Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I am getting an error saying that there is an error in the rundll32.exe. The message appears whenever I turn on and shut down my computer. I am curious of what is causing this error to pop up. Others say that this error is caused by several reasons that may need further drilling down. Can anyone give me an advice regarding this?

This is a registry error so in order to repair it, you’ll have to work on your computer’s registry. There are available softwares on the web for free download to help you get started. Follow these solutions in order until one works for you.


Simply download and run a registry cleaner and it will do the job for you.

Restart your computer and see if it fixes the problem.


Your error may be attributed to a malware or spyware. Download and install Malwarebytes (free) and scan your computer for any spyware.

Restart computer.

SOLUTION 3: Follow with extreme caution. This step could damage your computer if not done properly.

Go to Start Menu and click Run then type in regedit.


You’ll see on the pane on the right side some files. Look for “WildTangent CDA” and delete it.

Restart computer.


I hope you keep some restore points on your computer. If none of the above solutions work for you, this is the last advice I could give you. Simply restore to a date before you had the runtime error.

1. In order to access system restore, you must be logged in as an administrator.

2. To access system restore, click Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.

3. There will be a welcome screen and just click “restore my computer to an earlier time” and click next.

4. Choose a date prior to when you started getting the error then click next.

5. On the Confirm Restore Point Selection, just click next and this will finalize the system restore. This will automatically restart your computer so don’t panic.

I hope these solutions help you.

To isolate what is causing the rundll32.exe error is we will need perform a clean boot or what we called a selective startup. To perform a clean boot, First is you need to click on the "Start" button, Type "msconfig" into the bar and hit "Enter." This will open the Windows Configuration window, Click on the services and make sure that the Hide all Microsoft Services is checked before clicking on Disable all.

Next is click on the startup tab and disable all the startup programs. Click "OK" and then restart the computer. Try to check if the same error will appear during startup. If it doesn't show up anymore, Do the same process in going to msconfig, and enable the start up program one at a time to identify what program has an error with the DLL.
