  1. Hey everyone! Im new to this site, so hopefully someone can help me goes.

    Alright...this is really weird.

    When I goto Start -> Run and type in CMD to get to the dos emulator, i get the following error ----->

    The NTVCM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction. blah blah blah....

    But when I goto Command Prompt in the accessories Group, or type in COMMAND in the Run Line, it works fine....

    First of, I know theres a difference between CMD and COMMAND right? And second, how in the hell do I fix this problem? It just started happening!
