the subdirectory Repair

Can someone explain on the subdirectory Repair (under the system directory).
I was told that if dos programs do not work, I may copy the files
autoexec.nt, config.nt to the system32 subdirectory and work as usual.

Is there any limitation on this workaround?

Thank in advance

The \repair folder is supposed to be under \windows not \system. No
limitation on copying the files you mentioed. Why would you think there is?

No.

But why don't you remove the trojan if you have to keep doing this?

Did you change the files to Read-only?

Seems to be an epidemic lately....

This can be caused by a trojan.

Get rid of the trojan.

Update your antivirus software and run a full system scan.

Copy the autoexec.nt file from C:\Windows\Repair to C:\Windows\System32
And set Attributes for autoexec.nt to Read-only.

Or %systemroot%\Repair to %systemroot%\System32

Read-only
[[Specifies whether this file is read-only, which means that it cannot be
changed or accidentally deleted.]]

1. Right click the file.
2. Properties.
3. Select: Read-only.
4. Click: Apply.
5. Click: OK.

Do these file changes along the time?
Are there different versions?
Are they identical to those of Win 2000?

Thanks again
