    :confused: Whenever I attempt to install or run some of my applications, I get the following message from WIN XP PRO Corporate Edition:

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

    Can anyone tell me what I can do about this??
