16 Bit Ms-dos Subsystem

Recommended Posts

I have a problem on my computer.... :mrsgreen: I keep getting a window that says at the top:

"16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem

then:

"C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.

 

I don't know how to get rid of it.. :erm: .I click the buttons that say"Close" or "Ignore" but the Damn thing still pops up again....what do I do?? :blink: Please let me know... :erm:

Welcome To The Pit Dolphinlady1961. :)

 

I'll assume your running WinXP.

 

It seems that you may have a damaged or missing file, which can be replaced if you still have your XP disc.

If you still have problems, can you please post a Pit Test in your next reply.

:welcome:

 

I had this problem a month or so ago and I fixed it, with the suggestion of another pitstop member. Try this:

 

Go to Start > Search > Search for Files or Folders.

 

Run a search for AUTOEXEC.NT

 

If that pulls up anything, copy it [ do not cut it ]

 

Then use the search option to find your System32 folder.

 

Past that file inside the folder.

 

That got my PC running right again. :santagrin:
