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/commonprob...
and a video walkthrough up at http://windows.dasmirnov.net/videos/

That should sort it out. 8-)
