    That depends on what operating system you're running now and what computer.

Normally, you don't need a patch if you're using Windows, you can just run the application (By the way, which application are we talking about if I may ask?). If it's a Mac, you can try this link (http://www.planetmike.com/2005/03/30/run-dos-on-a-mac/), or if it's a linux you can try this link (http://www.preshweb.co.uk/linux/howtos/dos/). Hope this helps.

Tip

Install .msi files for plain user account


Many corporate environments are locked down, all users do not have rights to install applications by themselves. This helps reduce virus infections and spreading. <br /><br />But as IT staff, we need to help these users install applications that will help them do their job. Many new applications are in .msi format which means you can not hold shift and right click on the .msi file to Runas Administrator or elevated privileges.<br /><br />This tip requires you to know some basic MS-DOS command line syntax. But first you need to start a command prompt with the elevated rights.<br /><br /> Step 1, Open command prompt Step 2, Type: Runas /user:administrator "cmd" (enter administrator password) Step 3, change directory to location of .msi install file (simple DOS commands) Step 4, Run .msi file via command line, this will start theinstall via local administrator account. Complete installation Step 5, close admin command prompt screen.

Your system is infected by Sasser worm.The Sasser worm infects machines via network connections. It can attack entire networks of computers or one single computer connected to the Internet. The worm exploits a known windows vulnerability that is easily patched, however few systems seem to have this patch installed. It attacks Windows 2000 and Windows XP machines along with Windows NT and Windows Server 2003.


The patch from Microsoft known as the MS04-011 Security Update fixes the following vulnerabilities:
LSASS Vulnerability 
LDAP Vulnerability 
PCT Vulnerability 
Winlogon Vulnerability 
Metafile Vulnerability 
Help and Support Center Vulnerability 
Utility Manager Vulnerability 
Windows Management Vulnerability 
Local Descriptor Table Vulnerability 
H.323 Vulnerability 
Virtual DOS Machine Vulnerability 
Negotiate SSP Vulnerability 
SSL Vulnerability 
ASN.1 “Double-Free” Vulnerability 

Download the Windows patches for this vulnerability.Here is the link below:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms04-011.mspx



How Can I Remove the Sasser worm?

Follow these steps in removing the Sasser worm.

1) Disconnect your computer from the local area network or Internet

2) Terminate the running program
Open the Windows Task Manager by either pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL, selecting the Processes tab or selecting Task Manager and then the process tab on WinNT/2000/XP machines.
Locate one of the following programs (depending on variation), click on it and End Task or End Process

avserve.exe
avserve2.exe
skynetave.exe
any process running with the "_up.exe" suffix
Close Task Manager

3) Activate the Windows XP Firewall (if running Windows XP) or another firewall to prevent the worm from shutting your system down while downloading the patches. To activate the Windows XP firewall, follow these steps.
Click on Start, Control Panel
Double-click on Networking and Internet Connections, then click on Network Connnections
Right-click on the connection you use to access the Internet and choose Properties
Click on the Advanced Tab and check the box
"Protect my computer and network by limiting or preventing access to this computer from the Internet"
Click OK and close out of the Network and Control Panel

4) Remove the Registry entries
Click on Start, Run, Regedit
In the left panel go to 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>Software>Microsoft>Windows>Current Version>Run
In the right panel, right-click and delete the following entry

"avserve.exe"="%Windir%\avserve.exe"
"avserve2.exe"="%Windir%\avserve2.exe"
"skynetave.exe"= "%Windows%\skynetave.exe"
Close the Registry Editor

5) Delete the infected files (for Windows ME and XP remember to turn off System Restore before searching for and deleting these files to remove infected backed up files as well)
Click Start, point to Find or Search, and then click Files or Folders.
Make sure that "Look in" is set to (C:\WINDOWS).
In the "Named" or "Search for..." box, type, or copy and paste, the file names:

avserve.exe
avserve2.exe
skynetave.exe
C:\win2.log
Click Find Now or Search Now.
Delete the displayed files.
Empty the Recycle bin

6) Reboot the computer and update your antivirus software, and run a thorough virus scan using your favorite antivirus program.

For Automatic Removal of Sasser, download the Symantec removal tool, you'll still need to download the patches above and install them, however this removal tool will stop the Sasser worm from running, remove the items in the registry, and delete the infected files.

What is the difference between the Dos download and the windows download as there is 23 mb difference.


What application are you talking about?

Windows uses a different set of hardware drivers and completely different user interface software. Windows applications "call" standard methods to display menus, windows etc instead of including them inside the application. Most windows applications are larger than the dos equivalent because windows is "bigger" that ms-dos. Windows supports cutting and pasting between applications.

Dos usually has to have each application load its own drivers and its own user interface software. Often a dos application is smaller and sometimes less functional than the windows equivalent. Cutting and pasting between Dos applications is tricky and often involves "exporting" from one application and "importing" to the next via external files that you have save and locate.

Turbo c is not working in full screen in windows 7. Please let me know if you know the Soluation.


Vista and upwards do not support full screen for DOS applications. If you need to use it in full screen mode, use DOS BOX. But it will crash if you perform pointer or memory based operations.

For Dos Command


Download a program called Belarc Advisor. There isn't a command that will allow you get the system board number from the DOS prompt without running a 3rd party application.

When i am trying to use c++ on my system it is giving me message the NTVDM cpu has encountered an illegal operation


Here is an explanation of what NTVDM is: The NT Virtual DOS Machine (a.k.a WOW, or Windows on Windows), is a Win16 subsystem that runs under Windows NT, which allows 16-bit applications to run as if they were being executed on a DOS machine, with that machine's multitasking and segmented memory model. Because the system is multitasked 16-bit DOS and Windows applications cannot crash NT. However, 16-bit apps within a Win16 subsystem run the exact same way as they do on a DOS/Win 3.x machine; therefore, 16-bit apps within the subsystem can crash one another, or the subsystem. To prevent this, you can launch multiple WOW subsystems as long as your program does not communicate using shared memory. Windows NT will not allow NTVDM to execute instructions that try to directly manipulate hardware or memory locations. As a result, some DOS and Windows 3.x applications (such as games) may not run under Windows NT.
