All that is, is a notification of the error and that Windows wants to send it to Microsoft for review.

Basically when we get the error, it is placed in a virtual bucket. When the bucket reaches a certain point (the number of incidents that have occured) then it is moved forward to resolution.

Now that doesn't mean it patch won't be coming soon but just an explanation of what the process is.

Now to your problem.
rundll32 errors can be caused by a number of things. There are a multitude of 3rd party products that hook into it as well as Microsoft products. The question I have is, what were you doing when the error occured? Also, how often does it happen and when does it happen? during bootup? when opening a control panel applet? when printing? when opening Internet Explorer properties?

Oh, and a user dump is generated when you get this.

Open Dr Watson, Start > Run > drwtsn32 and look at the path shown in the Crash Dump field. Go to that folder and find the file named User.DMP. zip it up and send it to me via PM and I'll analyze if for you.

Found the file, just not sure how to "zip it up" it usually happens about every 3 or 4 minutes, startup, and when I try to open some programs, like add/remove programs, Im not sure when it started, but its been doing it for a while.

Do you know how to use Win Zip? Do you know what a Zip file is?

once you've got the file zipped, check your PMs. You can send it to me at the email address I've provided.

Ive tried 3 times to run that scanner, and the computer keeps giving me script errors and wont show me what is in the box that I need to check, or do anything with the scanner. it's hard to explain, Ill post a screenshot of it later.
