c:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt. the system file is not suitable for running ms-dos and microsoft windows applications. choose close to terminate the app.

i get this at each start up, i know how to get rid of it temporarily, - repair, autoexec.nt file copied to system 32, but comes back each time.

having trouble with my aiptek usb graphics tablet, and can't help but think this has something to do with it.

Maybe the file in Repair is corrupt.

click here then on XP_Fix.EXE to install a "good" copy.

Thanks VoG for the fix. I was having the same problem as second best. I came here first as you guys are brill at sorting things out before vast amounts of stress wash over me.

It worked a treat. I was having problems loading my Epson ink monitor after a full pc meltdown (XP pro) Exactly the same message as second best.

Cured, I thank you VoX have a gold star.

hhmmm. envy! i wish i could say the same, no such lick here. i have the file, i ran the exec, it tells me it for visual tour, and that it's successful. but i still get the message at startup. hyperpen still doesn't work either. i'm doomed.

i found this log file in the windows directory. as far as i can find out is it for graphics tablet stuff, and may be linked directly to my problems with my aiptek hyperpen tablet. can anyone give me more.

Try running Ad-aware SE click here Spybot S&D click hereclick here and AntiSpyware (XP/2K only) click here

Make sure you update them before running them.

Then try running XP_Fix.EXE again.

Thanks VoG. I was getting the same error message as Second Best and your answer was was spot on. First Class result. Thanks once again.

Second Best, Just read your reply above re visual tour. It looks like you downloaded the wrong fix from the webpage Vog directed you to. You want the second item on the page,not the first. Hope this helps. girrock
