Every time I go to run and type command, the command thing displays, but another window pops up...

16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem

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.
Close Ignore

While this message is up, the command window does not function, as I type but nothing enters the screen. And if I press 'close' or 'ignore' on the other window, the command window shuts down... does anyone know what the problem is and what I can do to fix it? All help will be appreciated.

Interesting! I didn't know that win2k or XP still had the old command.com file. And yes, it's not suitable for 32bit applications. To open the correct file type in cmd instead of command.
