I have a client who just upgraded machines.  Identical Operating System Window 2000 Professional.  On her older slower machine, when she launched WP5.1 CPU utilization  ran 5 - 10 %.  On the new system NTVDM.exe is sucking the life out of her CPU at 100% causing unacceptable performance.  There is another machine in the office running Win 2000 professional and it also runs ok.  

How can I keep NTVDM.EXE from using all of the CPU time?
