I have recently tried to install two games (Half Life and Neverhood) and both brought up a message that says "C:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications." This computer is running XP. Can anyone give me a heads up on this? Would love to install these games on this machine as these are two of my favorite games. Thanks.

Hi Asyuris

Have you recently removed some spyware? This seems to be an after effect of that. If not have a look at this site for some clues as to what might be going on.

Download and run 16 bit_fix.exe if that page describes the error your getting.
