When I try to install games I get this error message. Any ideas on how to fix it?

Thank you!

Hi TennJen and welcome to BC

That message indicates that autoexec.nt has been corrupted or deleted. This is usually caused by malware called WinAdTools so you might want to investigate that. Take a look at the HiJack This forum on this site for more info. You should consider posting a log.

The quick fix is to download and run 16bit_fix.exe. That should allow you to install your games.

EDIT: I just noticed that you have already done the HJT thing so this is just a leftover complication.
