    When booting up my computer I get the following error message:
    The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.
    (Also happens when I go to date and time settings and to add remove programs desktop propertys to change backgrounds and display settings and whenever I try to play a game.)

    A problem many many people have and nobody seems to understand me included referances to this problem will be found on thease links.

    I would seem acordeing to my first link
    CAUSE: This behavior can occur if Either your command.com or rundll32.exe or both are corrupt.
    RESOLUTION: To resolve this issue, replace the Command.com file and or rundll32.exe

    However they say Run the System File Checker, sfc.exe. Sfc replaces bad files but
    If that doesn't work we can replace rundll32.exe and command.com another
    way however I dont know another way when I try to delete rundll32.exe it says it is in use can somebody please help me for over a month this has been slowly killing me and I realy realy don't think its a virus I have avg free+spy bot s&d and I always use firefox.
