I don't know unfortunately how emacs-w3m works under NTEmacs, so
we need a help from those who use NTEmacs.  But I found a
Japanese page written by the emacs-w3m and NTEmacs user.  Here's
a translation:


  Emacs doesn't depend on Cygwin.  Therefore w3m will call DLL
  of Cygwin when emacs-w3m calls w3m.  For that purpose, the
  `Path' environment variable needs to contain the directory
  where DLL has been installed.  Otherwise w3m won't work

Could it help you?
