16bit MS-DOS Subsystem
The NTVDM CPU has encounteredan illegal instruction
cs:06fcIP:01ofop:63 72 69 70 74 Choose "close" to terminate the application.
If I close the box of I can use the internet but it does not seem right at all,any suggestions please ?

Is this a Packard Bell? If so it could be Surfairy click here

Ad-aware click here should remove this.

Yes it is a Packard Bell and your first click for Surfairy removal seems to have done the trick.Thank you very much Vog I had spent many hours fiddling on the computer getting nowhere , much appreciated.
