The System File is Not Suitable

By lmcdonald ·
I am getting an error on my WinXP home edition system.
The blue bar has "16bit Windows Subsystem"
and the box says "the system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'close' to terminate the application.
I get this when trying to run some older games that I have had installed on my system for a couple years. Never had a problem until within the last month or so. I have never seen this error before. What does the 16bit subsystem message mean and why can't I run these suddenly? I can't even reinstall them. I get the same message.
Appreciate the help...
