    Well, I’m by no means computer-savvy; but I waited for @ least 20 min. to find out there are of course thousands of issues to fix, but they could only fix 15 w/o my “purchasing”. Boy! If I had a buck for ever time I’ve heard or seen that! Thanks?

  2. mine started AFTER a windows update. I still can’t figure out WTF is wrong. None of the above proposed solutions worked. I still get the warning every 10-15 min or so.

    I have the same problem like Rich Vail. Right when I did the update I got “rundll32 has stopped working” every 15 min

    Throw the fucking computer against the wall. See if that helps.

    I think its a scam by software makers so you have to take your machine in for no reason! Nothing is effected! So its must just be malware from microsoft

    This started to happen to my Vista os on the 11/8/15 the message would popup about every 20 minutes.
    I found 2 installed files in my programs and features from the day before both from “Software Publisher”. ?????
    1. Increment Instances
    2. Supplements Pro
    When I removed both of these it stopped.

    Yeah, I had a piece of ad ware named IncludeMaker from “Software Publisher” which was causing the rundll32 errors.. I’m surprised that Comodo Internet Security didn’t pick it out of the system like it usually does…
