    dear sir/ madam,
    I tried to insert a cdtutorial to learn frontpage, I got a window( I never got it before) that read:

    16 bit window sub station
    c:\window\system32\autoexec.nt
    the system file is not suitable for
    running msdos window applications

    I don't have a cd for my win os pro sp2. I thought I had a 32bit edition. I'm not sure what kind of bus I have. my knowledge of comps is limited. sorry. what can you do for me?
    thank you for your consideration,
    googou

    Here's an easy, fast fix.
    Re: C:WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT

    Go to C:\windows\repair.
    Open the folder.
    Find the autoexec.nt file.
    Copy it
    Go to Windows\system32.
    Open that folder.
    Paste the file you just copied into it.

    I used Start, then used "run" and typed in C:\windows\repair...did the copying then went back to "run" and typed in Windows\system32 and found the file to paste into that way...
    I know it sounds like "of course" to those in the know..but for a Tech NO person like me...it was a Eureka! moment. :)
