16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem
The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.
CS:1212 IP:0109 OP:8c 75 29 ae 2c Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.
If I choose ignore, the window simply remains.
If I choose close, it closes and then pops right back up about 15 seconds later.
After a little looking around on the net I found out this has something to do with one of the following two:
1. Windows Update
2. Its a virus/malware of some sort.
I went in to shut off Windows Update and the screen is totally messed up.
Due to the fact that I've had my computer crash in the past (not anything like this though...it was blue screen of death last time...) I'm currently working on backing up all of my files to my external hard drive.
I am also currently running a full Virus and Spyware scan with Norton 360 - this is the only defense program that I'm aware that I've got on my system.
One last little detail; on the red shut down button in my start menu, it has the little ! sign signifying that there are updates to be installed on my next shut down.
Can anyone help me?
