Ntvdm encountered a system error

Hello,

My system configuration is as below. When I try to install an .exe file. I have observed the error - "NTVDM has encountered a system error NTVDM has encountered a system Error c0h choose close to terminate the application". Could you please help me with the solution as soon as possible.

System Configuration:
Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2
2GB RAM, Intel Pentium Dual CPU

Actual Problem - I am trying to install a JMF API(http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/download-142937.html) to my laptop with JDK (Java SE Development Kit 7) already installed.
When I try to run the installer, I am facing the "16 bit Windows Subsystem" error.

Also, it is noticed that the the same error "16 bit Windows Subsystem" gets popped up on trying to run "command.com" in Start -> Run

I tried the following troubleshooting tips. But, all in vein.
1) I tried to repair the windows xp operating system using a CD - I had some hard disk sync problem.
2) I tried to replace the NTVDM file from the location C:\WINDOWS\system32 - It could not be replaced.
3) I downloaded a COMBOFIX for my XP machine and ran the same - It did not pop any errors
4) I installed the current version of Acrobat reader - 9.4.0
5) I tried to download Qfixapp.exe for XP inorder to fix the problem -Could not find the downloadable file online

Please help me to fix the issue since I am in a very bad need of installing the JMF API for my projects.
Looking forward for valuable comments from your end.
