It may also be caused by a trojan try running A Squared free click here or update your virus checker then boot into safe mode ( tap away at F8 whilst the pc boots)and run a check.

May be nothing to do with your problem, but only this morning I had to copy Autoexec.nt to WINNT\system32 to clear an instability problem with 3 Win2000 (running FAT32) "Computers" in a HyperOs multi system arrangement. Switching between these computers fell over with the same error message that you have.

2 of them had this file in the right place, while the middle one did not have autoexec.nt in WINNT\system32.

My own guess is that this file absent, or in the wrong place will not allow normal boot up at all.
