Cannot run CD-ROM

I am trying to run a new CD ROM. However, when I place the CD in the drive it will not run and I get the following message:

"16 bit Windows Subsystem
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."

Can somebody offer any help?

click here and click on XP_Fix.EXE


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

Thanks Fruit Bat. That worked.
