W2K Pro boots with the follwoing error: '16Bit Windows Subsystem: C:\WINNT\System32\AUOTEXEC.NT... System file not suitable for running MS-DOS and Windows applications...' I am not trying to run any 16 Bit Windows programs. I have tried to remove all references from the registry as well as refreshing the Autoexec.NT and Config.NT files. I have also scanned and removed all Viruses and Spyware. How can I fix this?

To resolve this issue, type the following command at a command prompt to expand the Autoexec.nt file from the Windows installation CD-ROM to the Windows\System32 folder. Press ENTER after you type the command. When you type the command, replace cd-rom with the letter for your CD-ROM drive, drive_letter with the drive letter for your system partition, and system_root with the name of your Windows folder. After you type the command, restart your computer:
expand cd-rom:\i386\autoexec.nt_ drive_letter:\system_root\system32\autoexec.nt

Hope this helps
