Norton System Works

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

I don't know what is happing, all of a sudden I can not install any
programs. I tried to install Norton System Works 2003 and 1st Page 2000 all
I get is a window with "16 Bit Windows Subsystem" at the top and
"c/windows/system32/autoexec.nt." then "The system file is not suitable for
using ms-dos and Microsoft windows applications." This happened once before
with my Dell printer it would not install the software, after a call to Dell
they did something in the msconfig and the software installed. Doe's anyone
have any ideas what to do??? Also when I tried to install Norton part of it
got installed and I can not remove it. Does Symantec have a uninstaller
program or is there a free one that will uninstall the THING?????? The one
that came with Norton is corrupt is what it says. I am running windows xp
pro sp2 with all updates.
Thank you all, for the help, you folks are the best.

    Try this..

    Copy the autoexec.nt file from C:\Windows\Repair to
    C:\Windows\System32.
    And set Attributes for autoexec.nt to Read-only.
