  1. Hi All

    I've recently restored my computer that runs XP Home edition. I have also installed Norton Security 2005.

    However, I'm getting an error message which also includes:

    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[/B]

    Can somebody please advise me as to how to correct the problem.

    Thank you (in anticipation)
