rundll32.exe ongoing error

by S2Wilo / August 21, 2009 1:10 PM PDT

So my computer started to get an error upon boot, shutdown, and running fullscreen programs like a video game. rundll32.exe pops up twice on boot and shutdown, and once i run a game it doesn't stop coming up (everytime I press ok it returns.)

The message body of the error is; "The instruction at "0x7c9100e8" referenced memory at "0x00fd0010". The memory could not be "read".

Click ok to terminate, blah blah.

Either way, I've went lots of places with this and no one's helped solve. I don't want to reload my system, or pay a PC tech to analyse it and tell me that's all it needs.

I've updated graphics drivers, but still no problem.

Got any ideas?
