    I am trying to run the disk cleanup programs that came with xp professional but get the following error:

    16 bit Ms-DOS Subsystem

    c:\windows\system32\cleanmgr.exe
    The NTVDM CPU has encounted an illegal instruction.
    CS:053b IP:0116 op:ff 8b c3 85 Choose 'close' to terminate the application.

    What would cause this and how do I fix it? Thanks in advance for your help.
