    exception shell32.dll control_rundll hotplug.dll

    When ever I unplug a USB device from one of my USB ports, I get a RUNDLL error that notes:

    An exception occurred while trying to run "shell32.dll control_rundll hotplug.dll"

    Any ideas on what's up and how to fix it folks ? Not a big problem, everything still works fine, it's just annoying.

    Thre's no patch that I know of. Just right click My Computer and select Properties, select Hardware, Device manager, select View, select View Hidden Devices, and then for each Genric-volume entry under Storage Volumes, right click and select update and let windows try to find a better driver for the Generic volume. If windows says it doesn't a better driver, that's okay, but it will probably update at least one of the entries. Then close down the device manager and reboot. Prob should be gone.

    Apparently it's due to using Acronis TrueImage 11.

    Thanks ! Worked like a champ so far !

    I think it must have something to do with the Diskeeper proggie. All of them were o.k. except one which found a new driver.

    Thanks for fixing my annoyance !
