Print this post Email this post

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.

  1. 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
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\open\command]
    @="\"%1\" %*"
  2. Save the file as fix.reg and run it.
  3. Reboot your computer
