Hi :thumbsup:.

Do you mind checking the actual spelling in the error message?

I draw a complete blank (using Google) with what you have posted.

The only information I could find is that ntvdm.exe is part of the Windows 16-bit virtual environment, used to allow 16-bit software to run on a 32-bit version of Windows. Error messages related to that executable seem to be linked often to old drivers and certain types of malware. As for sys32vmmd, I am not sure what that is.
The only way to learn anything is to question everything.
