I am not sure that this is the correct forum for this post but it is the closest related subject that I could find. I recently tried to open MS DOS to fix some problems with my printer. I recieved this message:
"C:\WINDOWS\_default.pif Invalid program file name, please check your pif file."
I have not been able to find the source of this problem and I was wondering if you could help me out.

Thanks.

Click start then My Computer then double click the hard drive, click file then click new then shortcut. Type command.com and click next, then type _DEFAULT and then click finish. Locate the shortcut and click it.
