After virus removal using your favorite AV or Anti-Malware, you may run into a problem of missing run32dll.exe. This happened to me after running BitDefender Live CD on a computer infected with MS Tool malware. Other symptoms includes instances where shortcuts to applications not running.
- Use notepad.exe (if you’re unable to launch, use another computer or any file that write a text file) and write the following:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
- Save the file as fix.reg and run it.
- Reboot your computer
The first symptom I notice is that whenever I open MS Word 2007 is that the cursor would constantly blink rapidly between the busy and arrow. The second symptom I notice is that after a while, I’m getting “There is insufficient memory or disk space” error.
After scouring websites advising about changing the normal.dot file and still having the problem, I found another site that recommends deleting printer from the “Devices and Printers”. Before I tried that, I change the default printer to “PDFCreator” and it solves the problem. I didn’t have the time to troubleshoot it, but it maybe SNMP or network related, but documents actually prints just fine. So I’ll leave it at this for now.
