"windows host process rundll32 has stopped working"
I get 'windows host process rundll32 has stopped working' whenever I attempt to open Mouse in Control Panel to adjust mouse settings.
I'm on Vista.
I've tried: System Restore to previous updates - did not work
I've Turned off Data Execution Prevention (DEP)
I don't have lmpgvd.ax in Windows 32
I've done this whole this, but I don't have the program assioated with that. Open Computer > System Drive > Program files > Common Files > Ahead > DSfilter.
Rename "NeroVideoProc.ax" to say "1NeroVideoProc.ax"
Also rename "NeVideo.ax" to say "1NeVideo.ax"
I did this thing: If you get the error when opening folders that contain video files, try this and see if it helps:
Open Control Panel > Folder Options > Always show Icons, Never Thumbnails
But that isn't even the problem and it didn't work.
Any help? I've been trying to solve this for ages...

Looks like you have done quite a bit of troubleshooting :| but nevertheless pls see if something here helps you.
Hi. I've done all those listed instructions previously with no result with the exception of this thing:
You can also follow these steps to try and find out, which software is causing this issue:
Type msconfig in Vista's search box and hit enter to open up the System Configuration Utility window.
Click on Services, and check in the "Hide all Microsoft services" checkbox.
Click on "Disable All" button.
Now click on "Startup" tab, and then click on "Disable All" button again.
Press OK button and then "Restart" button on the following window.
Effectively, you have turned off all non-microsoft services and startups.
If the issue is resolved, open System Configuration Windows again and then enable all the services from Services tab and then check the issue after restarting the computer in the same way as mentioned above.
This way, you will have to enable/disable services and startups to narrow down on the culprit. Agreed, this is a lengthy and painfully boring process, but it will help you identify the culprit.
I was hoping to attempt to avoid that long and tiresome process but I might have to do it... sounds like a pain ugh
I would recommend trying those steps first as well as try the following

Look for Errors marked with the Red Circle matched with the time you got the last error to see if you may be able to narrow down what may be causing it
I know it can be nerve racking but theres no real quick fix for this unless you know whats causing it as this error can be generated by many many different things
Thanks for helping. Okay, I did that and I get this log:

I'm not that much of a tech person so I don't know what most of that means... any help?

Try to update your Synaptics driver. Run Windows update and see if there is an updated version. If you can't find an update, Uninstall the Synaptics Driver currently installed and then run Windows Update again. Also try checking your Laptop Manufactuer site for updated Drivers, especially Synaptics
