I sounds like you are infected. Not sure what what that error message is. It is just a random file made up by virus writers.

However a true sign of an infection is slow computer response, your system is working hard but you could be just looking at your screen. Random popups, that say you are infected. Buy here to clean.

You need to download a good FREE antivirus program. Avast.com is a good one. If you do not have a antvirus protection or if it is outdated you need to uninstall from the control panel. After this download the free version of avast home edition at avast.com. Download install and perfrom the boot time scan. Allow the program to reboot and update. It should remove the virus or adware issue. Please post update. I hope this help you out.

Looking around the internet it looks like the file is a virus, thus causing the issues you are experiencing. Download a good virus/spyware protection program like spysweeper to clean it and keep it from happening again.

I'm having the same problem, not quite sure whether it is happending due to upgrade to IE 8 or Windows Installer 4.5 installation. Cleanup and re-install of Yahoo Messenger 10 won't help. The YahooMessenger.exe fails to initialize right during the installation process.

Dll driving me nuts


Hello EricS777

The part where it looks like your xp stuff and vista stuff switch drives is normal. Only the Operating System associates the hard drives by letters this does not mean your hard drive files are switching. This happens because D: drive is Root of Vista OS and Root of any OS in windows gets the C: drive lettering.

dwwin.exe, drwtsn.exe dll is the "Microsoft Application Error Reporting" tool.

I think the message means that something is crashing during system shutdown. When the crash occurs the OS launches dwwin.exe to report the error, however the windows operating system is shutting down and so the application can't launch make the system lockup or hang.

Your problem isn't with dwwin.exe, you need to find out what is actually crashing at shutdown.

If you can`t find out what it is, try going to Administrative Tools/Services and disable the “Error Reporting Service”. You don`t want that running anyway.

Also right click My Computer/Properties/Advanced/Error Reporting
Put a check at both
Disable Error Reporting
But notify me when critical errors occur

Then, if that was the cause and the message stops, we`ll have to try to identify the cause.

The ntvdm cpu has encountered an illegal instruction


I took this from another web site:
Michael Chiew said:
What did you do before this happened? What were your last deeds on the machine before the pop-up appeared?

I think what you're referring to is NTVDM CPU, not NTDVM CPU. Am I correct?

What do you know about 16-bit and 32-bit applications? Well, 16-bit applications are those that must work within the DOS (Disk Operating System) environment, a real-mode arena. NTVDM stands for NT Virtual Dos Machine.

In Windows XP, as in Windows 2000, or Windows 98, there are 16-bit and 32-bit environments (real mode and protected mode respectively).

Windows XP can only operate in 32-bit mode. All 16-bit applications must work within its own theatre of operation, typically, the first MB of physical memory (ram). Conversely, 32-bit applications must function above the first MB memory line. If either of these applications happens to slip into "alien" territory, you get an error message like "something" has encounter an illegal instruction. In other words, the wayward application is trying to slip by the immigration checkpoint.

In your case, updatemgr.exe (I suspect updatemgr.exe is a 32-bit application) has in all likelihood wondered into the 16-bit arena. Hence, NTVDM CPU issues that warning. 

Why do you continue to get the message. It's because updatemgr.exe incessantly misbehaves itself on start-up, always trying to load itself into a particular memory address where it is not welcome. Why the persistence? Updatemgr.exe has gone bonkers. It is either corrupted or damaged.

On the other hand, one cannot discount the possibility that NTVDM (NTVDM.EXE) is corrupted or damaged. So your problem lies with either updatemgr.exe or NTVDM.EXE, or both.

There are 2 things you could do.

First, establish who owns updatemgr.exe, Microsoft or some third-party owner. Second, rename updatemgr.exe and see whether the message goes away.

To establish ownership (and the function of updatemgr.exe), do a search for the file. 

Click START, select FIND. In the FIND dialog box, type: updatemgr.exe. See the directory in which the file has lodged. In Windows Explorer, get to the file, right-click on it, select PROPERTIES. Who owns it? Is there an indication of its function.

Next, rename the file. Right-click it, select RENAME and rename it to, say, updatemgr.old. RESTART your computer. Do you still get the error message. Not likely.

To clean things up a bit, perhaps it is a good idea for you to replace the current NTVDM.EXE with a new copy. Find out where NTVDM.EXE is. Then, click START, select RUN. Type in the RUN dialog box SFC to run the System File Checker. Insert your OS CD, follow the prompts, extract a copy of NTVDM.EXE and send it to its place of residence. Of course, you should also replace a copy of updatemgr.exe.

That should eliminate your problem for good.

Amvo.exe application error


Though you didn't include the actual message, memory issues can be from not having enough RAM, having physical RAM that is defective (run a memory check), or running too many processes for your system's capabilities. Take a look at the Task Manager to verify services are not overloading your PC capacity - you may need to add RAM. Thanks for rating FixYa!
