VISTA:The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction

Sir, Please, after my laptop (HP G6000) boots up and I log on the screen turn dark and display the following message:
C:\recycled\SVCHOST.exe
The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.
CS:120a IP:012d OP:db 74 0a 8b 03 Choose ‘Close’ to terminate the application.
                                      
                                        Close                           Ignore

The Operating System running on it is Windows Vista.

    I HAVE THIS PROBLEM ALSO. My operating system is a Vista PC. In addition whenever I try to get to any security places on my computer this comes up. I cannot even change the settings on my screen saver right now because of this. Please advise as to what I can do to fix this. Many thanks....
