Try to extract a fresh copy of RUNDLL32 from your .CAB files.  Place this in the windows/system subdirectory.  If the problem still persists, try to disable your accelerated video functions.  This can usually be found in Control Panel /System /Performance /Video, or if you are using OSR2 this can be found in Control Panel /Display /Settings /Advanced Properties /Performance.
