    Im a little stymied about resolving a problem...Trying to load some software..Quicken as an example..and running some software such a various applications within a utility suite...I get this error message titled 16 bit windows subsytem..C:\windows\system32\config.nt. "The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft windows applications. Chose close to terminate the application" Basically I cant load quicken and other software, and I get the warning on operating some already installed software but it still will run.

    Ive tried the "go back" option still have the same problem.

    Found this trouble shooting guide which i think applies ..http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q314106

    When I do the first step i get a promt window but i also get the warning

    I am unable to find the config and autoexec file mentioned in the second step. In the NTFS system?
    If anyone has any idea and could clue me in a bit it would be appreciated

    Thanks DB
