I am working on a friend's computer. It's a 2.7 GHz Intel machine running XP Home. After several hours of deleting viruses, spyware, trojans, and God only knows what else, I finally got the system clean. After rebooting and opening Internet Exploder, I got the following message:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\40wjn.exe The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.
CS: 0571 IP:0126 OP:c6 56 e4 16 d6.
Choose "close" to terminate the application.
I've never seen that before. Does anyone have any idea what is causing this? Does it have something to do with 16-bit versus 32-bit differences between Windows XP and older Windows apps?
Once I close out the window, I can surf just fine on IE. I just don't like this error message showing up for my friend when it wasn't showing up before.
Penny for your thoughts.
