while trying to download a printer off hewlett packard an error message popped up
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.
i searched hp's website and found out how to fix that problem i was told to find autoexec.nt in repair folder, right click autoexec.nt, copy, and send to system 32 folder. well unfortunately i accidentally clicked and dragged autoexec.nt to the system 32 folder and now i cannot locate it anywhere. i have run searches on computer for it, tried system restore and even reloaded windows xp(by accident) and nothing i still cannot find it and it is required for me to finish installing my printer. any help is appreciated but keep in mind i'm not a computer genius (as you can obviously tell.) so any help needs to be pretty much spelled out for me. thanks
