Autoexec.bat Stack Overflow

Hello,
I am having Stack Overflow problems on a Vista machine.  I found the link listed below at this site.  The questions I have are these:
I can not get permission to edit the config.sys file.  I found the permissions settings but can't change the settings.  Do I really have to add these lines in the config.sys file;
STACKS=64,512 ;(this is the maximum allowed)
FILES=60
BUFFERS=40

Or, could I add them to the autoexec.bat file?  
I have not tried it, but will I be able to edit the autoexec.bat file?

If non of the above apply, how then do I solve my "Stack Overflow" problem?

What are you trying to do exactly? In theory, autoexec.bat and config.sys are no longer used, but if environment variables are set in autoexec.bat, then vista will parse them - but everything else should be ignored.

roybridge: thank you for responding.  Basically I need to stop the "Stack Overflow" popup message/error.  I did some searching and found information on this site, which spoke about editing this files.
So the real question is; How can I stop the Stack Overflow.

I will be submitting a separate question on this then....
