    Hello there!

    The most simple fix it to copy autoexec.nt from c:\windows\repair to
    c:\windows\system32.

    If you need more help, or that doesn't work there's more detail on this up
    at
    http://windows.dasmirnov.net/troubleshooting/commonproblems.php#autoexec.nt
    and a video walkthrough up at http://windows.dasmirnov.net/videos/

    That should sort it out. 8-)
