Here’s a solution to the problem of the command prompt disappearing. I use the command prompt to ping things etc and one day it just started to disappear when I went to start > run > cmd. Out of no where it just started to go away leaving me with a “WTF?” look on my face. Without running cmd I’d run something directly such as “ping japanitup.com” or “ipconfig” and then I tried “regedit” and that didn’t work either. And then out of nowhere I got slapped with the “NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction” whaaaaaaaat theeeee….
Check out this screenshot. NTVDM.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You will need to restart the program. An error log is being created. Doh!
Oh yeah, let me just start NTVDM back up Mr. Windows…. like I know what the hell that is? I did some research on this and found out that NTVDM.exe is. It basically allows you to run Dos programs on Windows NT or XP successfully. It emulates the old school DOS/16-bit operating system to allow older programs to run, such as the command prompt eh?

iTunes is a great piece of software in my opinion but it does have some disadvantages and some problems on occasion. One of the worst problems I’ve had with iTunes is after an upgrade it started skipping songs… what I mean is a song plays fine for a while and then gets all messed up and sounds like a scratched CD that’s skipping. I would play the song in Windows Media Player and it sounded fine. I play the song in iTunes again and it sounds fine.
If you are running into the same problem with iTunes sucking balls then here are a few solutions that might work for you.
iTunes Skipping on Windows XP Solution 1:
- Exit iTunes
- Upgrade your sound card drivers (just to eliminate that as an issue)
- Upgrade to latest Microsoft direct X version:
- Click the Start Button, then click the Run button
- Type: dxdiag and then hit enter
- Click “sound 1″ or similarly named tab
- Slide the bar to “basic acceleration”
- Restart iTunes
When I click on Send and Receive in Microsoft Outlook I started getting the error Interface Not Registered. This error started to appear after I installed some video editing software and also ran some updates to the software. I searched around the Internet and found this solution from Microsoft which fixed my problem.
