Hi
Any help would be appreciated.
My Brother moved house recently and since setting up his computer when he loads a cd or dvd he gets an error message
"C:/windows/system32/autoexec.nt. The system file is not suitable for running ms dos and windows"
We can't figure out what is wrong
He has windows XP with an Athlon processor
Thanks for any help :whistling:

Do you have a valid XP cd?

If so, place it in your CD ROM drive and follow the instructions below

Start > Run > cmd then type

sfc /scannow (note the space)

let this run untill you get a message saying it is complete.

SFC - system file checker, retrieves the correct version of the file from %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.

If you want to see what was replaced, right click My Computer > manage, expand event viewer > system.

HI
Afraid not. It seems when you buy a new computer now you don't get any operating discs with it.

System file checker not needed, nor is an XP CD.

Look at this:
