Regedit problem

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

Please help me! I didn't know where to post this topic at.

I went in to change my Recyclin Bin icon. I've done it before, but I moved
the icon to a different directory, so I had to go in and change it again.
It's been a while since I did it for the first time, so I don't think I did
it right. The Recyclin Bin icon has errors too. Sometimes it looks like it's
full, but it's not and Vice Versa. That's the least of my problems though. I
cannot change it because...

When I try to open my Regedit, this message pops up:

16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem
C:\WINDOWS\system32\Regedit.com
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running
MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the
application.

Can someone please help me to fix this problem? I'd great appreciate it.

    Dump the contents of the IE Temporary Internet Folder cache (TIF)
    Start --> Settings --> Control Panel --> Internet Options --> Delete Files

    Dump the contents of the Mozilla FireFox Cache { if you use FireFox }
    Tools --> Options --> Privacy --> Cache --> Clear

    Download MULTI_AV.EXE from the URL --
    http://www.ik-cs.com/programs/virtools/Multi_AV.exe

    It is a self-extracting ZIP file that contains the Kixtart Script Interpreter {
    http://kixtart.org Kixtart is CareWare } two batch files, four Kixtart scripts, one Link
    (.LNK) file, this PDF instruction file and two utilities; UNZIP.EXE and WGET.EXE. It will
    simplify the process of using up to 3 different Anti Virus Command Line Scanners to remove
    viruses and various other malware.

    C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT -- { or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS}
    This will bring up the initial menu of choices and should be executed in Normal Mode. This
    way all the components can be downloaded from each AV vendor’s web site.
    On Win9x/ME the choices are; Trend, McAfee, Exit the menu and Reboot the PC
    On NT4, Win2k, WinXP and Win2003 Server the choices are; Sophos, Trend, McAfee, Exit the
    menu and Reboot the PC.

    You can choose to go to each menu item and just download the needed files or you can
    download the files and perform a scan in Normal Mode. Once you have downloaded the files
    needed for each scanner you want to use, you should reboot the PC into Safe Mode [F8 key
    during boot] and re-run the menu again and choose which scanner you want to run in Safe
    Mode. It is suggested to run the scanners in both Safe Mode and Normal Mode.

    When the menu is displayed hitting 'H' or 'h' will bring up a more comprehensive PDF help
    file.

    To use this utility, perform the following...
    Execute; Multi_AV.exe { Note: You must use the default folder C:\AV-CLS }
    Choose; Unzip
    Choose; Close

    Execute; C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT
    { or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS }

    NOTE: You may have to disable your software FireWall or allow WGET.EXE and/or FTP.EXE to go
    through your FireWall to allow them to download the needed AV vendor related files.

    * * * Please report back your results * * *

    Thanks for your help.

    I downloaded that Multi_AV file, but I really don't understand how to do any
    of that. :(

    It will bring up a menu. You can hit the letter "h" for a helpful PDF file.

    It really is easy.

    Hi

    Please see if the following article helps:

    "Error message when you install or start an MS-DOS or 16-bit Windows-based
    program"
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;324767

    As for the Recycle Bin, see if the foolwoing link to Kelly's web site helps:

    I think I've read that site before, the first link you sent me. I didn't
    understand it though. What CD are they talking about? I don't have a CD to
    anything. :(

    Is there any other way?

    Try this. If you can connect to the Internet this gives you the option to get the missing files without the CD
