Hello everyone! First time user and I have SO many problems it's not even funny. I have a very old HP Pavillion DV4-1428 that I was somehow able to get windows 10 on (I think I love 10.) The current problem is I tend to mess with things even though I have no idea what I'm doing. My computer started freezing and I started messing around and now it says an app needs the following windows feature: NTVDM. I've read a lot of the other posts regarding this, but they are all older and talk about DOS and 16 bit etc. and I am completely computer illiterate. Thanks in advance!

when you experience this error? During working of certain apps?

Regarding freezing, it occurs during the time of this error?

It is windows feature to run 16-bit application program. If your pc asks for it select install as shown here.

If it is not a big deal or you didn't use 16-bit app then ignore it.

I just installed CCLEANER and this is what it says I'm running on: HP Windows 10 Pro 32-bit
AMD Turion X2 Dual Core Mobile RM-75 4.0GB RAM
So if I'm 32 bit than it's OK to not install it... I just want to be sure.
Also, what category would I post about opening versus saving a file?
Thanks for all your help!!!
