ok, so everytime I turn on my computer I get a error box that comes up saying:

"16 bit Windows Subsystem

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Chose 'Close' to terminate the application."

So I just click close and it goes away and I never really gave it any thought before because as soon as I hit close it goes away and doesn't say anything else. But today I downloaded an old game, one of the older versions of Lode Runner. When I try to run the install my computer comes up with the same error I just described and doesn't let me go any further. Any suggestions/solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks much,
