Operating System Version:win xp pro
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model: dell workstation
Error Messages: "file not found try reinstalling", also get "cannot find rundll32.exe"

THe computer boots up ok, but when i try to run any and mean any program I get the above error message.

I can go to the control panel but, when i click on say add/remove programs get error message cannot find rundll32.exe

if I try to run a program say "word" get message that it cannot find the program but i have not changed the link or path.  Even if I go to the run file itself get error that file could not be found.

Any ideas before I think about reinstlling windows and hope that solves the program.

Put the Windows XP CD ROM disk in the CD ROM drive.
Click Start, and then click Run.
Type "expand X:\i386\rundll32.ex_ c:\windows\rundll32.exe" (without quotes) in the Open box. X is the letter of your CD ROM Drive.
Restart the computer.
