Default Help! Rundll32 problem

whenever i am on my desktop and i right click, then click on personalize, then themes, display settings, screen savers, or window color and appearance I get this message: Windows host process (Rundll32) has stopped working

A problem cause the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.
Ive tried to find some programs to fix it like Reg cure and a few others, but they all cost money. I looked for the file on the cd, and couldnt find it. Im out of ideas. Please help, im stuck on the ugly classic theme

First, is this in XP or Vista? If it is in XP have tried running the repair on the install CD. That may fix the problem. I haven't used Vista that much so I don't know about running the repair on the Vista install disk.

Cheers!
