USB Removal Error

I recently started receiving the following error whenever I need to remove a USB device and I first go through the proper "safely remove" process prior to physically disconnecting the devices:

Rundll32.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

I had this problem once before years ago, but I just can't seem to find the solution to resolving it.  I know that there is some sort of fix.  I have have tried doing a search through this site and Google, but I never can seem to find a solution that is on point.  

I am not concerned about removing the "wrong" USB device or a disk player.   I am only talking about removing flash drives, WD "Passport" drives, or their equivalent.

Thanks!

I'll presume you've looked at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/887740

From here http://help.lockergnome.com/windows/Run-DLL-APP--ftopict557688.html comes

Open Run command and type in: rundll32.exe setupapi. InstallHinfSection
DefaultInstall 132 %wind ir%\Inf\ie.inf click [OK]  but I can't vouch for it.

had you scan your computer for viruses?
Did you try another USB?
