NTVDM freezes system for 40 secs

By dgagne ·
Doesn't matter which program it is...if I close any DOS program in my Win2k workstation...I have to either wait about 40 seconds for the system to respond, or kill the NTVDM.exe in the task manager. The second I kill the NTVDM process, it unfreezes the system. It's really annoying...any ideas?

NTVDM freezes system for 40 secs

Hi,

I did find 2 other solutions you can try for help with this problem.

1. You must have at least RX permissions on %SystemRoot%\System32 and it's sub-folders.

2. Shorten the path, if any, in AUTOEXEC.NT

My autoxec.nt file looks as I believe it should. There are 5 entries...should I remove one of them? These are the entries...

REM Install CD ROM extensions
lh %SystemRoot%\system32\mscdexnt.exe

REM Install network redirector (load before dosx.exe)
lh %SystemRoot%\system32\redir

REM Install DPMI support
lh %SystemRoot%\system32\dosx

REM Install network redirector
lh %SystemRoot%\system32\nw16
lh %SystemRoot%\system32\vwipxspx
