Gentlemen:

Have you ever seen an error like this? (when trying to open the command prompt DOS window or regedit). Before this msg. I was getting this autoexe.nt error - I was missing that file from my WIN32 folder so I replaced it (d/l from some computer help site as I don't have my O/S disk), and now I get this message. It all seems to stem from some nasty spyware I picked up recently and finally just got rid of (p2pnetworking.exe) I Followed the instruction from another (closed) posting regarding the removal of that bit, but still having this CMD window problem. Help!!

"C:/WINNT\system32\cmd.com
The NTVDM CPU has encountered an liiegal instruction.
CS:0533 IP:ffe4 ff 1d 09 21 Choose 'Close' to terminate the application."

U shouldnt have d\l autoexec.nt from another website. Windows keeps a backup copy in "C:\Windows\repair" (where c: is the volume where XP was installed). Hopefully, ur bakup copy is not corrupted(check the date).

I tried copying the backup file from the WINNT Repair folder but that didn't work. Any other suggestions?

Yes I already tried that. Thats when started getting the current error message. The former error message was "16 bit windows subsystem: C:\WINNT\system32\autoexec.nt. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application." I can't seem to find a remedy for this.
