The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft applications

Put the above into a Google search, and it will find several MS bulletins about this message - I'm sure one will help.

click here and click on XP_Fix.EXE


MS-DOS or 16-bit Windows-based program Error message when you install or start Xp,
Do the following. Rename the existing file autoexec.nt to autoexec.old (make sure you have not got your system files hidden). Inside the windows folder there should be one called "repair". Within this folder there should be a copy of autoexec.nt. Make a copy of the file and place in the orignal location
