Someone help! Whenever I try to open MS WORD or EXCEL, I get an error box that says
16 Bit Window Subsystem
C:/Windows/System 32/Autexec. NT
The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'close' to terminate the application.

This was all working fine and 'suitable' 2 days ago! What happened? I haven't loaded anything new (that I know of).

The page states:
When you type these commands, replace cd-rom with the letter for your CD-ROM drive, drive_letter with the drive letter for your system partition, and system_root with the name of your Windows 2000 or Windows Server 2003 folder (this is typically either Winnt or Windows). After you type these commands, restart your computer:

My CS Rom is drive D, but how do I find the drive letter for my system partition and the name of my Windows folder?

Plkus, if I'm reading this right, I need a CD Rom for WORD, and it came with the computer.

It would be your OS installation disk.

A simpler way to repair/replace these files is to download XP Fix.exe from here

Thank you! Thank you! I'm a writer and really needed to fix this fast. It worked like a charm.
Thanks again,
Bill
