    I keep getting the following dropdown notice everytime I try to download software applications from disc's:-
    16 Bit Windows Subsytem--C\Windows\System32\AutoExec.NT, The System File is not Suitable for Running MS-Dos and Microsoft Windows Applications. Close to Terminate the Application.
    Can anyone advise how to eliminate this problem?

    If it is XP, there are a few options.

    Either the link provided by JayT

    Or go here to get the XP Fix: http://www.visualtour.com/downloads/

    Or go into the Windows folder, there is another folder in there called "Repair" which has a copy of the autoexec.nt file, just copy it over the old one in the System32 folder.
