Hi all

I wanted to do some tweeks in my registry but when i typed the word "regedit" in the RUN box, it came up with this error message.
First the comand prompt box appeared and then this error message.
"16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem
c:\windows\systym32 regedit.com
The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction
CS:0f3d ip:01 07 OP :of 02 02 46 00
Choose 'close' to terminate application"

The CS:0f3d ip: number changes every time i try it.

I have no idea what has happened.
My system32 folder has also fanished from the system.well i can't find it in the windows explorer.

Can anybody help or shed some light on this.
Thankyou

A quick fix may be to run System File Checker:

Start, Run, 'sfc /scannow', OK.

Hi Graham

I typed sfc/scannow and got an error message
"windows cannot find sfc/scannow.

Thanks

Space before the /

sfc /scannow

Went through the sfc process and nothing happened after that the problem still remains.

Possibly related to previous threads with this part of the error, use the search facility to have a look through them

Some ideas click here

16-bit windows subsystem error - click here and download and run XP_FIX.EXE

Thanks
I searched and found two related to a start up error message.nothing on regedit.

  BAZZER007 13:25 30 May 2005

The error still occurs

I can not carry out the instructions they give on the site.
First solution:The same error comes up when i try to use the cmd prompt.
Second solution:The system32 file is not there to copy over the fles i need to.

Thanks VoG

I have even formatted the hard drive and reinstalled XP as a solution but no go.
