Windows 7: rundll32.exe delays when game(s) run

25 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Edition 64-bit
rundll32.exe delays when game(s) run


I've seen this happen for quite a while. For some games, I'll see rundll32.exe take some CPU, and it can take as long as a half minute for the game to finally run. If I kill rundll32.exe then the game .exe gets killed too

Battlefield Vietnam, GTA3-San Andreas, even StarCraft 1 I believe regularly do this to me

How could I remedy this ?
