16 Bit subsystem problem?Locked
When I go to install a program on XP, a 16 bit subsystem window pops up and shows C:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt Then it says file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and MS Windows applications. It doesn’t matter if I am trying to install from a cd or a file download. I have installed these programs before on xp with no problem. Is this a virus? I have done virus scans and adware scans up the ying yang. After some research I hit on testing the windows virtual DOS machine by typing command.com in the run box, so that it would start a command prompt window. Well, it didn’t. But I can get to the command prompt window by typing cmd. I have checked the config.nt file and the autoexec.nt files. I have repartitioned. Not sure what to try next. Any ideas?
