    The process NTVDM.EXE belongs to the software ntvdm.exe or MediaTickets by OIN or Microsoft Windows Operating System or ntvdm.exe by Microsoft Corporation (www.microsoft.com).


    Description: File ntvdm.exe is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. The file size on Windows XP is 520,192 bytes.
    It is a Windows core system file. The program has no visible window. The file is a Microsoft signed file.

    "NTVDM" can run at start up. Windows NT Virtual DOS Machine (NTVDM) for running 16-bit tasks on the 32-bit OS's (Windows NT, 2K and XP). Required if hardware on a machine with these OS's needs 16-bit DOS drivers. You can find a bit more about NTVDM here
    Try this also: open cmd in evelated mode, then type sfc /scannow and check for errors. It may ask for the Windows Bootable disc.

    Ntvdm.exe is the Windows NT Virtual DOS Machine. This is used by Windows to allow DOS applications to run under Windows NT-based operating systems (2000, XP, Vista). It is also used in conjunction with wowexec.exe to run 16-bit applications under 32-bit Windows.
    It is common for virus and spyware to disguise themself as the genuine one.
    The following malware is known to disguise itself as the genuine ntvdm.exe:

    W32/Tilebot-JX
    W32/Sdbot-DFQ

    Common Errors:
    using almost 100% cpu usage
    NTVDM.EXE has generated errors and will be closed by Windows.

    Solution 1: Run a thorough and deep Virus & Malware scan.

    Solution 2: Reinstall ntvdm.exe from your original XP disk.

    If you need help to reinstal lntvdm.exe just holla.

    ...so, if ntvdm.exe is situated in system32 folder, then it could be the legit MS file, else malware...

    1st of wall so many thanks by having answered my post.
    I think everything started as I installed and ran AVG Anti Virus , possibly AVG changed ntvdm.exe and cmd.exe, which despite there is nothing to do with this post , seems to be trouble as well.
    I noticed something is wrong with ntvdm.exe as clicked to open an old dictionary that used to run to a tee on Windows 7 (32 bits) and received an error message : The applicative canīt be started correctly (Oxc0000142) ,;
    By the way , answering Nithing R6 question , if I received such message on start up : the answer is no message during Windows 7 start up.
    ntvdm.exe is in the folder c:\windows\system32 , the date and hour it was modified match exactly the AVG installation (OS was installed on a previous date and hour).
    AVG later was unistalled as it caused the OS to be very slow and the mess was already made.

    As others said try scanning for curropted system files. Type cmd in search box and when it apperars under programs right click and select run as administrator. Now type sfc /scannow and press enter. It is the system file checking utility and will replace the corrupted system files. Make sure that you have the windows installation dvd in your dvd drive.

    sfc /scannow :
    as I try to run an error message occurs :

    sfc.exe application error
    The application failed to initialize properly (Oxc0000142) ,
    Click on OK to terminate the application.
