    I have a 2 week old Compaq Presario. When I first got it, installed the driver for my Samsung ML-4500 printer and it worked perfectly. After a spyware storm yesterday, when I rebooted, the system asked me to reinstall the driver. I still had the setup files in a separate directory, so I went there and clicked on 'Setup.exe'. I immediately got a dialog box titled:

    '16 bit Windows Subsystem'

    With text:

    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.

    There are two buttons: Close Ignore

    Ignore appears to do nothing, Close closes the window.

    Any Ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    P.S. The printer is working fine and the system no longer asks me to reinstall the driver
