I have a problem with ntvdm.exe running on my pc. I run windows xp and when I leave the computer running for a while ntvdm.exe starts and takes up 100% of the cpu usage. It takes a while to end the process in task manager but when I have ended the process it will be fine for an hour or so and then it starts again. Please help as it is affecting other programs as I use my pc for work. Thanks.

Dear peakyblinder,

NTVDM is a 16 bit win~1 application. Just follow this.

- Go to c:\window
- Delete winhelp.exe and winhlp32.exe on Safe Mode.
- Restart the system.

Hope 100% valuable.
When i'am trying to delete c:\windows\winhelp.exe and c:\windows\winhlp32 files, it is showing message like "you require permission from trustedInstaller to make changes to this file" . How I can resolve this problem?.
