Hi lindsxo2,

First, let me make sure I have the correct error. I couldn't find anything on

ntvmd has encounted an illegal instruction

but I did find lots of stuff about NTVDM has encountered....

Has anything changed? Were you trying to load software or change something when the error occured?

From reading...
Microsoft suggests contacting the software distribitor of the package you are using to resolve the issue.

Another forum thought that error was caused by spyware. Of course you situation may vary from that.

Please let us know if you think there was a cause for the effect you have. You mention the router... was something changed and now the system has issues?

Lots of questions... good luck
