    Windows host process (Rundll32) has stopped working

    I am getting this error when I try and empty my recycle bin. I am running
    Windows Vista Ultimate (clean install) RTM x86. Is there a fix? I have read
    other threads. Other people have had this same problem. No one seems to
    know why or offer some sort of fix. I would appreciate a bug fix. It is
    simply annoying. This could prove serious when released.

    **Warning** if you do not have a solution, or are not smart enough to
    understand, do not answer this post**

    Update: When I click on 'Check online for a solution and close the program'
    ( I do not have any programs opened ) the window reappears multiple times in
    a frenzy until the recycle bin is closed. 'View problem details' reveals:
    Problem signature:

    Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
    Application Name: RunDLL32.exe
    Application Version: 6.0.6000.16386
    Application Timestamp: 4549b0e1
    Fault Module Name: StackHash_1703
    Fault Module Version: 0.0.0.0
    Fault Module Timestamp: 00000000
    Exception Code: c0000005
    Exception Offset: 02b0b5ed
    OS Version: 6.0.6000.2.0.0.256.1
    Locale ID: 1033
    Additional Information 1: 1703

    Additional Information 3: 1344
    Additional Information 4: 875fa2ef9d2bdca96466e8af55d1ae6e

    This is extremely annoying. Its disturbing that Microsoft has released this
    OS in this shape. I have found other bugs as well, but up until now I have
    found solutions in this forum.

    Well that's a very friendly approach. It totally precludes anyone from
    making constructive suggestions.

    Good luck.

    I don't understand. I don't have a solution but couldn't the OP just
    reboot? or restart the stopped rundll? or buy Ubuntu?

    Hi Jon,

    The exception code (c0000005) indicates a driver problem. Which one is
    another issue. Have you installed any third party software, including
    antivirus software? Also, did this problem start immediately after finishing
    setup? The first time you did this? Or did it start after some use of the
    system? As this probelm does not occur with every Vista user, it is
    something about your setup (could be hardware or software) that is the
    problem.

    Look, all I am trying to do is raise awareness here that Vista Ultimate has
    a serious error. I posted the complete error here for anyone qualified that
    might offer some insight. I wanted to eliminate garbage responses, no
    offense intended

    I take it, from the fact that you didn't specifically forbid me from
    responding, that only Jim has been grounded?

    Re: Windows host process (Rundll32) has stopped working

    Greetings Rick, For the record I am using Windows 'Live One Care' Vista
    Beta. If this helps anyone reading this who may solve this issue. If anyone
    bothers googling this particular bug, many people besides myself are
    receiving it in different scenarios.

    Now, in my situation all I am doing is emptying the recycle bin. No
    programs are open. The files I am deleting are left over from burning a disc
    in Nero 7. Again, no programs are open when I empty it. The Nero version I
    have is supposed to be compatible with Vista Ultimate.

    If you have something you feel is valuable to contribute, then by all means
    do so. I Just think that when Vista is released that this bug will rear its
    ugly head in a big way. I did a google search on it. This bug is occuring
    in many different situations. Again, all I am doing is attempting to raise
    awareness.
