Hi, I hope someone can help me.

Recently, everytime I boot up, I get the following msg box :-

"C:\windows\system32\autoexec.NT. The System file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and MS-Windows applications. Choose "Close" to terminate the application"

The choices are "Close" or "Ignore".

When I come to load a program from my STARTUP menu, this appears again. I don't know what I've installed (or uninstalled) has given this, but does any1 know how I track this down and delelte the message?

Many Many Thks,

rgds,

chandwpl

If this message started appearing after you installed or tried to install a program, see the article:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;324767

If directions are unclear,
http://www.visualtour.com/downloads/

Go this site and download the XP_Fix.EXE file.

Also run spyware scan, particularly for anything named admanager. Deletes the autoexec.nt at bootup.
