While accessing the profile, I get this error.    System works fine once it is (the error) closed but appears every time the computer is started and a profile is accessed.

Any idea how to fix this error?

"16Bit MSDOS subsystem
C/windows system 32/regsvr32.exe NTVDM CPU encountered illegal instruction.

Hello ggclaim =)

Can u try this.... goto Start>Run>msconfig>Startup
click Disable All
restart and check now for the problem
if this time it has not came.... then re-enable each application at a time and trace out the culprit one !!!!!

Coz its possible that if u are having ONLY this error while ONLY restarting,,,, and now while installing\opening some other programs.... then there is a program which tried to start at startup and failing to do so... thus giving this error !!!!

!! GOOD LUCK !!
