Here's a link to a discussion on this topic.


"Bob" says on message 12:
The issue is well known that winad spyware does this damage. It deletes or alters the autoexec.nt and config.nt files.

message 10 discusses emulators

"Ed" says on message 9:
are trying to install a 16 bit Operating System (DOS 6.X) under Windows XP and it just isn't going to happen for a few reasons. First, it can't "see" a FAT 32 or NTFS formatted partition--MUST be installed on FAT12 or FAT16 partition. It is an OPERTING SYSTEM, and not simply an application.

It sounds like either a spyware problem or a compatibility issue. Hopefully, one of the GTG experts can weigh in on this.

Did this program ever run successfully?
