    Error message when you install or start an MS-DOS or 16-bit
    Windows-based program

    Also can be caused by a Trojan installing a file windupdater.exe and
    creating registry entries for that file.

    AVAST (free antivirus software) can be the cause if SP2 is installed:

    You can put back the standard version of autoexec.nt by copying a backup
    copy held in windows\repair to windows\system32.
