Illegal System DLLs

Since running Windows Update the other day, everytime I start my computer, I end up with a message that reads the following:*rthdcpl.exe* – Illegal System DLL Relocation The system DLL user32.dll was relocated in memory. The application will not run properly. The relocation occurred because the DLL C:\Windows\System32\Hhctrl.ocx occupied an address range reserved for Windows system DLLs. The vendor supplying the DLL should be contacted for a new DLL.I finally got fed up with it a minute ago, and decided to search for a fix. I came across this page which seems to provide an answer.

It’s related to the RealTek HD Audio Control Panel, and it not loading DLLs in the correct order (although other processes also seem to cause problems). Microsoft have now released a HotFix to fix the issue as well, and I’ve just installed it. I’ll let you know my mileage!

The Hotfix can be downloaded from here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/925902
