    Windows 10 Personalized Settings cannot find Rundll32.exe


    Windows 10 Personalized Settings cannot find Rundll32.exe

    Overall trying to ascertain why I get a Black-Screen-Of-Death after boot. (A cursor shows and can be moved)
    My 32bit PC that MS determined would work fine with Win 10 (and did work fine in Win 7) is failing in Windows 10.

    Because I believe the issue revolves around some form of display issue, I was "tickling" the Personalized Settings.
    Under Personalization>Themes>Related Settings, the following selections gave me errors:
    Advanced Sounds settings error "C:WINDOWS\System32\rundll32.exe "Element not found"
    Desktop icon settings error "C:WINDOWS\System32\rundll32.exe "Element not found"
    Mouse Pointer settings
    error "C:WINDOWS\System32\rundll32.exe "Element not found"
    NOTE: rundll32.exe is in the proper directory but for some reason the error is "Element not found"

    I ran SFC /Scannow and there were the following errors:

    On the July 29th I downloaded a 64bit ISO from MS and also a 32bit ISO

    I used Windows Update for this 32bit Dell computer. Whereas I used the DVD's for the 64bit computers.

    I am not sure of what to do next? I have posted my issues on MS Community sites a number of days ago but to no avail.

    The 32 bit computer is accessible via Task Manager; Command Prompt and Settings

    My 2 64bit computers (all Dell) are working well.


    TIA Dennis

    It's an older thread, but I've had a similar problem and solved it. After seaching the web, I still don't know, why this problem occurs, but you can try this:

    WIN+R -> rundll32 shell32,Control_RunDLL desk.cpl,,0

    To me everything was working fine, when I worked locally. After joining my domain, the domain admin was not able to run desktop icon settings anyways, except by running "rundll32 shell32,Control_RunDLL desk.cpl,,0"

    Other commands can be found here (German page):
    Funktionen/Befehle der Dateien RUNDLL.EXE und RUNDLL32.EXE

    Greets & good luck
