The system file is not suitabel fro running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windos Applications...

Ok this has happened to me before and for the life of me i dont remember how i fixed tt . I remember toiling with it for  several days.  I might have given up and reformatted my HDsk.  I am in the in school and i just dont have the time to mess with this...any imput would be greatly appreciated. I need to install ATM  for my Digital Imaging class and Error: C:\WINNT\System32\AutoExec.nt system file is not suitable for running .......please close or ignore keeps on getting in the way
Oh by the way i have not had problems installing any other windows or dos based apps.

Sounds like the autoexec.nt or the config.nt are trashed or missing. They should be in the c:\windows\system32   directory. if they are missing there should be a copy of them in the c:\windows\repair directory.

If they keep dissapearing I would guess it's spyware. I run into this a few times where after every reboot the autoexec.nt was gone. After I cleaned the system the problem went away.

Heres some links of a few programs I use to clean systems
