I am running XP-Pro (SP-1)on PIV 1.6 256 Ram.Of late ,after a reinstall of
OS and SP-1,my kids tell me they are unable to install games like NFS-III
Age of Mythology etc. < blessing in disguise?> It seems that previously all
was well and these games <and more>were installed without difficulty. On
trying to install, the following message appears <quote
>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.<unquote>
I have The following progs all updated and periodically run on my system
1) Zone Alarm free
2)NAV-2003
3)Adaware SE
4)Spybot S&D
5)Spywareblaster
6)A-squared free
7)CCleaner
8)CWShredder.
Recently suffered a Trojan attack< courtesy two teenaged kids > when apart
from these had to resort to cleaning with Trend Sysclean package in safe
mode and had to do some deleting.Wonder if I had managed to bungle up
something then.
Would somebody please help.
TIA.

Hello!

Easy solution, copy autoexec.nt from c:\windows\repair to
c:\windows\system32 if you're not sure on how to do this there's a video up
at http://windows.dasmirnov.net/videos/

Hi,

The simplest method to resolve this common problem is to copy autoexec.nt
from C:\Windows\repair to C:\Windows\system32 and overwrite the one that is
currently there.

Alternately, you can create a new autoexec.nt file and save it to the
\windows\system32 folder to overwrite the corrupted one. Click start/run and
type notepad, then click ok. Copy/paste the below code into it (instead of
typing it in to prevent errors), then click file/"save as". Navigate to the
C:\Windows\system32 folder, change the "save as file" type to "all types"
and name the file autoexec.nt, then click save (if prompted to overwrite the
existing one, do so).

@echo off
lh %SystemRoot%\system32\mscdexnt.exe
lh %SystemRoot%\system32\redir
lh %SystemRoot%\system32\dosx
SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 P330 T3

Reboot when finished. This usually fixes it, but you will find further steps
here if it doesn't:

Error message when you install or start an MS-DOS or 16-bit Windows-based
program
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=324767

Basically, you will have to expand new copies of command.com, autoexec.nt,
and config.nt to the system32 folder from the WinXP CD or I386 folder on
your hard drive. Sometimes, you need to create new ones and overwrite the
existing ones - the method is described in the article.

I hate to say it but man you have way to many Spyware programs on your
computer if you have to many they can start to uninstall each other and/or
system files you only need to very very good programs Spybot-Search and
Destroy and AVG 7.0 Free Edition I have used those programs for about 3 years
now no problems!!! oh yeah as for your computer saying it is unable to run
"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." one thing get more ram 256 is at bare minimum
also if you did a non destructive restore it will restore windows system
files and not wipe your whole hard drive!!!

Or you could have answered here. Looking in another NG is only good if you're
already subscribed to the group. There's over 10,000 headers in the last 3 days
in that group.

What did they say check the compatibility setting ?

Hi
had the same problem myself a few weeks ago If you search for the missing
file and copy it to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\
Then everything should work
Hope this helps
