System32 Question

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics (More info?)

Ok when I try to burn images onto a cd I get this message
C:\windows\system32\autoexect.nt or sometimes I get this one:
C:\windows\system32\cmd.exe
then it says this system file not suitable for running ms-dos and Microsoft
windows application.
Now what did i do, or what should i do to get those 2 programs back? I think
I need those if i want to burn these psp pictures to this nero program. Right?

Please help???

    Seems to be an epidemic lately....

    This can be caused by a trojan.

    Get rid of the trojan.

    Update your antivirus software and run a full system scan.

    Copy the autoexec.nt file from C:\Windows\Repair to C:\Windows\System32.
    And set Attributes for autoexec.nt to Read-only.

    Read-only
    [[Specifies whether this file is read-only, which means that it cannot be
    changed or accidentally deleted.]]

    1. Right click the file.
    2. Properties.
    3. Select: ? Read-only.
    4. Click: Apply.
    5. Click: OK.

    First off, and i don't know why i even say this any more cause people
    seem to think it's bogus or something, try a system restore first. Alot
    of times this gets back what you lost and is easy. Second, the only time
    i got those messages is when i tried to use a burning software that was
    too old for winxp or when i tried burning something that winxp tended
    to burp up due to being dos. An incompatable program will give you this
    error, i found this out from experience.When i quit trying to burn the
    info and tried something else it worked fine. I have also seen this
    happen mostly when some people had Nero with keygen or other keygen
    software. I told them to uninstall and delete and the problem went
    away.

    Hi,

    Extract the autoexec.nt and cmd.exe from a windows xp installation cd.
    Usually that solves the problem temporarily. The problem is repititive.
    Anyone have an idea what is causing this problem in the first place?
    I also have a terrible experience with that problem. Any help is
    appreciated.

    Shafiee.

    ???
    cmd.exe is the command prompt shell executable (the "DOS" mode in Win XP).
    I don't see what that has to do with burning cd's.

    It doesn't directly but if someone is using an incompatable program or
    something with a keygen like ehhemm,nero, this may cause this error. I
    have heard lots of things that cause this. People get this when logging
    on other users on a network, running games, c++ code and many others. I
    know it has to do with the 16 bit subsystem but I haven't heard one
    person say the microsoft fix works for good, only temporary. As the
    above mentioned, sometimes caused by a trojan, which i haven't heard
    but i don't doubt it. I did have this happen to me when i tried
    installing dos games in compatability mode. I had to find all the
    files, delete them and do a sys restore to get rid of the nagging
    error. I ' m sure many know more about this error than i do but this is
    just my info.
