I'm trying to run an old program (BibleSoft PC Study 3.0) on Windows XP Home Edition. Everytime I try to install it I get this error:

c:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT

I ran the program before on XP and it worked fine. I have installed service pack 1 installed but I've installed it on an XP professional machine with service pack 1 on it and it works fine.

Any Suggestions?

Thanks!!!!

this is getting to be a common problem,
the autoexec.nt has been removed, i think is is cause by spyware only not sure witch one

i just replaced the file with a copy from my other machine

then i ran adawareSE to remove any spyware on my machine.
if this is not done, when you restart the machine the file will be missing again.


hope this help.
