Howdy and welcome to G2G:

As per Microsoft..

1. Click Start, click Run, type c:\windows\repair, and then click OK.

2. Right-click autoexec.nt, and then click Copy.

3. Click Start, click Run, type c:\windows\system32, and then click OK.

4. Right-click anywhere in that folder, and then click Paste.

5. Right-click the Autoexect.nt file that you just copied, and then click Properties.

6. Click to select Read-Only, and then click OK.

Note You must enable Read-Only permissions or the files will be removed after you restart Windows.

Or, you can try this FIX
