16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem Error - Biosctl.exe
Posted on 2005-02-27
Everytime I boot up Windows XP the following error message occurs:-
16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem
c:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'close' to terminate the application
You then have the option to Close or Ignore
Things I have done so far to reslove this are:-
expanding from the Windows XP CD, Config.nt, Comand.com and autoexec.nt to the system32 folder.
A complete virus scan with an up to date version of norton anti virus.
Re-install of motherboard drivers
None of the above has solved my problem.
Curiously, everytime I reboot, autoexec.nt dissappears from the system32 folder.
This version of Windows XP has service pack 2 installed
Any help on resolving this is much appreciated
