    I keep getting this error when trying to install programs such as AVG,my scanner driver's and I can't remember what the other was.
    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.
    There's also an ignore button but it still closes if you click it.Has only been happening the last few days :mad:

    I'm using Windows xp with sp 1.

    Don't know if there is a difference but have you got the AVG for XP & not one for win9x?

    If it has only sarted in the last few days what software have you installed? Done any tweaking?

    My AVG is running fine.

    Ta for the reply Doofy :D
    Turn out to be a problem with the AUTOEXEC.NT file and I found a fix on the net so it finally works now,was a old version of a Ham Radio software hubby tried to install that did it :rolleyes:
