While trying to rid my computer of adware, etc., I accidentally
deleted rundll32.exe from windows.  Naturally now several programs
won't work.  Does anyone know a site where I can download it from?

What OS?

If you take a shower, where do you put it?

You shouldn't need to download it, it's on your windows CD
in the I386 folder as "RUNDLL32.EX_", so you'd just EXPAND
it from there to the destination.

For example,


expand  <drive letter and path of I386 folder>\rundll32.ex_

Another example, if you had your windows XP CD in an optical
drive that was drive letter D:, you'd type at the run

expand  D:\I386\rundll32.ex_

Note that if above lines wrap, the commands were all one

Further, you might have a backup copy of rundll32.exe in
your \windows\syste32\dllcache , folder which you could copy
back to the \windows\system32\ , folder.

You might not have accidentally deleted Rundll32.exe?  Some
viri/spyware/etc will replace it, meaning you would need to
restore a fresh copy.  Also note the version # of your copy,
IIRC, XP SP2 version of rundll32.exe is 5.1.2600.2180, but
it might be that some patches could've updated that further
too.... but if you're running SP2, I'd expect you should
have at least the version # above if not higher.
