I'm getting this error message :

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

I typed in cmd from run, but it doesn't help ? Do you have any other suggestions ?

I using Windows XP

Is that the 16 bit subsystem error you received?

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=305521

if so, you can try:
going into the windows folder, there is another folder in there called "repair" which has a copy of the file, just copy it over the old one in the system32 folder.

or

Put in your XP cd
from the command line type:
expand D:\i386\autoexec.nt_ c:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt
