Today I started getting the following error message when I've tried to
launch a solitary program I've used many, many times:

c:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt.The system file is not suitable for running
MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the
application.

I'm currently running my AVG virus checker and it has found several trojans
in a system restore point and in the temp directory. I'm assuming my
problem is due to the trojans. I know how to delete the temp directory.
How can I delete the one (1) restore point.

What I tell people is ne time u detect virus, trojans, etc..., backup
important files, and reinstall ur OS.

You could trying removing all trojans, restore to a previous point, and then
delete or clear all restore points.

Hi Terry,

The simplest method to resolve this common problem is to copy autoexec.nt
from C:\Windows\repair to C:\Windows\system32 and overwrite the one that is
currently there.

Alternately, you can create a new autoexec.nt file and save it to the
\windows\system32 folder to overwrite the corrupted one. Click start/run and
type notepad, then click ok. Copy/paste the below code into it (instead of
typing it in to prevent errors), then click file/"save as". Navigate to the
C:\Windows\system32 folder, change the "save as file" type to "all types"
and name the file autoexec.nt, then click save (if prompted to overwrite the
existing one, do so).

@echo off
lh %SystemRoot%\system32\mscdexnt.exe
lh %SystemRoot%\system32\redir
lh %SystemRoot%\system32\dosx
SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 P330 T3

Reboot when finished. This usually fixes it, but you will find further steps
here if it doesn't:

Basically, you will have to expand new copies of command.com, autoexec.nt,
and config.nt to the system32 folder from the WinXP CD or I386 folder on
your hard drive. Sometimes, you need to create new ones and overwrite the
existing ones - the method is described in the article.

turn system restore off which "should" delete the restore points.

Also, next time, DO NOT install the trojans. It's YOUR choice.
