When i try to boot up the computer i get this error message:
16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem
Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\NAIL.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft windows applications.
CLOSE IGNORE

If you click either buttons (close or ignore) message dissappears and computer freezes/does not continue loading windows.

I've tried booting in safe mode and from the last good configuration but same error appears.

Please help.

Try using ewido security suite.
You can try it for free.

If that doesn't help, then:

Read How to post a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully.

Then, run a log, and post it in the HJT forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

NOTE:
Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.

You can't boot in any mode; safe, normal, safe with networking?

1. Set your BIOS to boot from CD
2. place XP Cd in the drive
3. reboot
4. when prompted to press any key to boot from CD do it
5. press R to access the repair console
6. at the prompt type CHKDSK /F it could take a few minutes to complete scan.
7. The system should reboot on its own.
8. If you still can't boot normally try the safe mode.

Please also perform the following...
click start, control panel, select add/remove programs scroll through the
programs and find the program related to the abi network. You will have to
go to a website and download the uninstall program and run it.
Dump the contents of the IE Temporary Internet Folder cache (TIF)
Start --> Settings --> Control Panel --> Internet Options --> Delete Files

Dump the contents of the Mozilla FireFox Cache { if you use FireFox }
Tools --> Options --> Privacy --> Cache --> Clear

Create a folder on the C: drive name it nailfix or whatever you want down load this nail fixand extract all contents to the folder run the exe file from safe mode
