Hi You can try this:
Use any text editor (such as Notepad) to edit the System.ini file.
Add the following line to the [boot] section of the file:

Save and then close the System.ini file.
Restart your computer.

Or you can try this:
Insert your original Windows CD in the CD/DVD-ROM drive, open an MS-DOS prompt, and navigate to the folder on the CD that contains the setup.cab files. These will be files numbered in sequence with names like Win98_21.cab, Win98_22.cab, etc. Within that directory, find the first CAB file name in sequence. Now enter the command--> EXTRACT/LC:Windows /A win98_21.cab rundll32.exe,--- replacing Win98_21.cab with the actual lowest-numbered CAB file name. This will extract a fresh copy of Rundll32.exe and put this essential file directly into your Windows folder.
