Why do you think rundll32.exe is infected?

This is what I see when I navigate to C:\WINDOWS\system32 Folder

because avg doesn't know whats good and whats evil Which is some times bad and some times good
perhaps its time to uninstall it... the only thing i like that its firewall it asks when i Open or when some one Tries to connect to me (Except My ISP Of course) , i don't think avast warns me which makes me feel unsecured but its database sure waaaaaaaaaay better than avg

maybe RunDLL32 is trying to Run a cretin DLL i am not sure it started when i just opened my computer and avg Detected it as malware...
better not to remove RunDLL32.

It also says threat name Unknown
Security level 4
Description : not available

Hey be careful avg can remove important files also I tried to remove a virus with it.
It made my laptop unbootable!
Careful
Windows system 32 are important files

Uncertainty brings a lot of major problems^^

So if ur unsure about something, its better to leave it as it is^^

*may some kind of a tip*
I think u should leave that dll alone...then if something wierd happens to ur PC with or without ur consent, its time for a HijackThis log^^

Even the virus was in my computer if I let in like it is I could have played a bit more with my computer but by removing these windows files then I can't do anything
