    Hello, I have automatic updates on and they're not running, and when I try to manually use the windows update site it asks for an installation update. Once It get to the installing part I get a DOS box pop up with this error:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\regsvr32.exe
    The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.
    CS:0557 IP:011a 0P:ff ff f3 d3 dc Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.

    If I close it just disappers and the install fails, if I press ignore I need to press it a few times till it closes by itself, each time the same message appers with a slight change:

    CS:0557 IP:0142 0P:ff ff f3 d3 dc Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.
    CS:0557 IP:0156 0P:ff ff f3 d3 dc Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.
    CS:0557 IP:016a 0P:ff ff f3 d3 dc Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.
    CS:0000 IP:0077 0P:f0 37 05 0e 02 Choose 'Close' to terminate the application. This one Twice.

    Haven't noticed problems with anything else, but I haven't tried installing anything.
    Thanks in advance for any help!
