When I attempt to run regedit I get:
16 bit MS-SOS Subsystem
C:\WINDOWS\system32\regedit.com
The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.
CS:0db 1 IP:ffd3 OP:63 fa 65 13 64 Choose 'close' to terminate the
application.

The option to close or ignore is given, but clicking ignore eventually
closes the window and application.
I also had a spybot/p2pnet virus that Norton deleted.
I running XP pro.
If replacing the NTVDM.exe would correct the problem, exactly how do I find
and replace the file?
Thanks
