Hi to all,
I have been recently working with my computer and have recieved an error. It says "16 bit MS-DOs Subsystem C:\misb.exe The NTvdm Cpu had encountered an illegal instruction. CS:053c I:02b2op:63 6b 67 72 6f Choose 'Close' to terminate the application" However, i did recieve an earlier error, that was kinda of the same things but that said "16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem c:\misb.exe c:\Windows\system\Auotexecint The system file isn't suitible for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application."(or something like that, i am not sure if I got the spelling totally right). However, i resolved that error by downloading a fix that was suggested in a previous forum called "XP_FIX". That fixed that problem, but then i recieved this new one. It is really frustrating. Any help would be great.

P.S. It occurs upon startup of the computer

MISB.EXE is, according to my information, a trojan horse dialler and should be deleted if possible. It is not a part of a Windows installation , and if genuine would almost certainly not be placed in the root of C: drive where it is.

I would also advise you to download and run HijackThis then post the log to the relevant forum for further advice, as your system may well have other malware installed.
