Rthdcpl.exe - Illegal System DLL RelocationMore information [support.microsoft.com] on the error.
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.
Seems easy enough a choice to just install the thing.
Microsoft knew about the problem since Dec 20th 2006. And now needs to rush a patch out because it gets widely exploited out there. Perhaps time to re-evaluate your being a customer of the monopolist as well while yoou are at it.

Microsoft reportedly claimed to be working on this bug since December, because the fix was so ingrained with the OS, yet their fix creates a serious new problem? Meanwhile, the third party fix (which I installed earlier) seems to have been hacked out in a very short time - albeit with a disclaimer.
I'm not bashing MS, but I'm losing the faith. I think they have a couple of managers that need to be reassigned to the Help Desk.
Meanwhile, thanks to WebmasterWorld for the heads up. I had the update scheduled for later today.. I think I'll wait. I did run the update yesterday on the XP at the house, but I rarely use that machine. I wonder if they're cussing me over there...
I will try to run a fix when I get home and I will post back instructions if successful.
So far I haven't noticed it causing any other programs to fail.
Just switched over to Ubuntu Linux a few weeks ago, and now I feel so good. In fact, this this text area I'm writing in is being spell checked for me as I write, by default.
I don't remember winders doing that!
Firefox does that even on M$.... although any reason to switch off M$ is a good reason. The only reason I have it at home is it is easy for my girlfriend and my son to use.
We think it was Microsoft's way of testing who has a Genuine copy of Windows and who doesn't.
Because you can't download the hotfix unless you go through their certification process!
A quick way for MS to weed out the illegal copies of Vista.
got error as described here today as well.
