How to Repair Rundll

by Charles Poole

The Run.dll error on your computer can shut down all of the productivity on your system. This is probably due to an inconsistency in your computer's registry. DLL stands for Dynamic Link Library. These files are very similar to the EXE files that are used to install applications on your computer. There are several solutions that you can use to fix your Run.dll error. You don't have to be a computer programmer to complete this task. You can do it with minimal knowledge of the subject and just a couple of keystrokes.

Locating the Error

Write down the file path of the error when the Run.dll error message is displayed. For example, write down "C:WINDOWS\system32\usvdgpo.dll."

Navigate to the "Start" menu and select the "Run" button. The Run dialog is displayed.

Type "services.msc" into the field and click the "OK" button to open the "Services Management" window.

Locate the file path that you wrote down. From the example, you would locate the "C:WINDOWS\system32\usvdgpo.dll" file from the right-hand side of the menu. Right-click on the file and click the "Stop" button.

Navigate to the "Start" menu and select the "Run" button. The Run dialog is displayed.

Type "regedit" into the box and press "Enter." The Registry window is displayed. Navigate to the appropriate key by expanding the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE> SOFTWARE> Microsoft> Windows> CurrentVersion> Run" entry.

Click the "rusvdgpo" = "%System%undll32.exe %System%usvdgpo.dll, [LETTERS]" button and then press the "Delete" button on your keyboard. Restart your computer.

General Troubleshooting

Restart your computer. Sometimes simply restarting your computer will fix the run.dll error.

Remove any recently installed programs. Navigate to the "Start" menu and select the "Control Panel." The Control Panel is displayed.

Click on the "Add/Remove Programs" option.

Click on the program that recently installed. Select "Uninstall" from the menu.
