Hi! I'm new here!

Since this afternoon, my comp has been showing the NTVDM CPU error. And all the .exe files in the error, was always from my Temp folder

There's a bunch of these random .exe files, from WinA.exe to Win32.exe to Win1A.exe to Win16.exe...and so on. Every 30 seconds, or sometimes less, the error would just pop up, with random .exe files but always from the Temp folder.

An example of the error is as follows:

C:\Windows\Temp\Win20.exe
The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.
CS:00ff IP:896e OP:8f d0 d7 00 4f Chose 'Close' to terminate the application

or

C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Temp\Win32.exe
The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.
CS:00ff IP:896e OP:8f d0 d7 00 4f Chose 'Close' to terminate the application

I've ran System File Checker from the command prompt, but nothing seemed to work.
Please could anyone tell me what should i do to get rid of the constantly appearing error?
Thank you in advance.

Hi Jsyn...

Let's let the malware experts deal with this one.

Please go to the Malware Forum and follow the instructions you'll find there.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- post a hijackthis log in THAT forum. Do Not reply to or "bump" your own topic...if it shows a reply, it may be overlooked as one that is being worked on.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
