Update: Get Free Tips - Corrupt files or even a Virus/Malware in Windows

While trying to hibernate, I get a warning saying ‘The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process’. My friends told me that the process ‘rundll32.exe’, which runs in
the background, is the cause of the error. Will I be able to solve this problem without reformatting my PC?

The problem with your computer could be caused by corrupt files or even a virus/malware. First of all, use antivirus and anti-spyware software to scan your computer to rule out any infections. Also, use the program Hijack This to remove possible hijacks from the registry. Restart your computer and try to hibernate it again. If this does not work, try to restore your operating system’s corrupted files by using the System File Checker (SFC) in Windows.

Click ‘Start | Run’, type ‘SFC/scannow’ or ‘SFC/scanonce’ and press [Enter]. The ‘scan now’ option will scan your system files and replace the ones that have been corrupted or overwritten by another program, whereas the ‘scanonce’ option will do it at the time of the next boot only.

Both procedures will ask you for your original Windows XP CD to be inserted in the optical drive. Also, they will ask for your confirmation before replacing any file they find corrupted or replaced by any other third-party application or a virus...
