I know this has cropped up before - but I need an Idiot's guide.

I'm running Windows 2000 Professional 5.00.2195 service pack 3.

When I start up my system launches NTVDM.EXE (which seems to behave) and then a short time later launches another NTVDM.EXE which hogs the CPU. I can end the greedy process in Task Manager with no ill effect.

How do I stop it from launching in the first place?
