    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?

    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
