I have been playing some old games for years on Windows XP Professional. I tried to open Mah Jong yesterday and came up with this error message

C:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt
The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows Applications

I tried to do system restore and went back way before this happened and it did not help. also when rebooting the Windows XP start up screen does not say Windows XP Professional and my computer is slowing down.

You can use this link to fix the problem, but make sure you've done an up to date viral scan. With the link use the XP Fix

I tried downloading XP Fix and it said it couldn't find an INI file and then found where somone said to copy autoexec.nt from windows repair folder to windows systm 32 folder and that worked.
Thank you for your help.
