Good news, Carl!  Now at least once a week, run Ad-Aware & keep it updated.  
Keep your virus software updated, find your Windows XP CD & put it in a safe 
place.  You will be ok!

  Hi David, Trapper, Pam, Bob, Bob, Vic, Martha,  and all you guys,  

  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
  My problem was spyware.
  Trapper was the 1st to suggest I run ad-aware and I paid no attention.   I 
scuff it off.   I even pohoo the suggestion.   I apologize Trapper.   Others of 
you said it was spyware and to get rid of the junk in my startup menu.   I must 
confess most of that stuff I did not install.     At  your suggestions, I 
download Ad-Aware using Opera and then I had to reboot to safemode to install 
the software.    I ran Ad-Aware in safemode and it identified 142 offenders, 
including registry keys, files, and 6 folders.   I deleted them all.   Then I 
rebooted and I can now open Internet Explorer 6 and Windows Explorer.

  My deepest thanks to all of you.
  I still cannot find my Windows xp cd.   :-(
  Maybe my granddaughter has it.  :-)

  Carl

    Vic: The rundll32 that is being talked to is connected to tweakui and in
    this case I would end the task. Tweakui can do some serious things in
    creating problems if you play with it, however, really think spyware is
    doing Carl in. :>) He has so much junk running we need to shut some of it
    down to isolate the culprit. :>)

    The long and short of it is --- do not play round with rundll32 - if it
    is there and running Windows needs it for something.

    Rundll32.exe = Required for Dial Up Networking. This also appears in the
    Startup list if the resolution monitor (used to change monitor
    resolution on the fly) is placed in the system tray even if unchecked in
    Startup.
