Following your advice sorted the problem. Had to use both Spysweeper and No-adware as well as Norton Anti-V to thoroughly clean my system.

Could any kind soul please help me.
I cant install any programmes on my machine.I'm running XP Pro and each time I go to load something I get the following error message.16 Bit Windows Subsystem.C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXE.NT
I have tried the copy and paste method from Windows Repair to Sytem 32 and it works fine except each time I reboot the file vanishes.
Any idea would be appreciated thanks.
check for spyware & viruses, had that problem trying load avg6 on system, came up with that error, did online scan with antivirus.com found 5 different viruses infecting 740 files of 21000 checked & not entire drive checked. customer said blow out drive, reload software which i am doing on this machine as i type to you
Thanks friend, sounds a bit drastic to me.I have AVG and have just done a scan and it's come up with no virus's.Not so sure if I can trust AVG now though.
Try running an Online Virus Scan
http://www.ravantivirus.com/scan <- Excellant, picks up everything
Try disabling System Resore, restart your comptuer.
Try what it says on this page http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;324767
There are a few differnt fixes, just start with number one, then go through, if it dont fix continue on.
Thanks for all that CJC I shall try all that right now.
no antivirus program is perfect not even norton but i'll use avg over norton any day
Can anybody help me further on this problem.
I have done all the virus and spyware checks and looked at the Microsoft fix but cant get hold of the three required XPpro files.
It says use the command prompt but being a little new to this game cant work out exactly how to type them in, in simlpe terms.
Many thanks Rob
Click on start, then go to Run.. now time in CMD
Now it should bring up a black box with something like C:\Documents and Settings\Username\>
Now u have to make sure your windows XP disc is in there
Then type the following (D: being your CD-ROM drive, if its E: change all the D:'s to E:'s)
expand D:\i386\config.nt_ c:\windows\system32\config.nt
expand D:\i386\autoexec.nt_ c:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt
expand D:\i386\command.co_ c:\windows\system32\command.com
Then restart your comptuer and try the program again.
Thanks CJC why couldnt everyone explain things as simple as that.
Well I did it and it worked,at least up to when rebooting then the Autoexec file dissapears from Windows 32 but remains in the Repair folder.
So I'm still none the wiser jusy yet.
Are u continueing on doing the other steps on the Microsoft Page ??
You only need to do up to Step 5... then if that doesnt work... THEN contine on...
So do it again, from the command prompt, restart, then try your program.. if it still doesnt work.. THEN continue on doing the other stuff.
Think you cracked it for me CJC.I just switched on and the file is still in Windows 32 where it should be.And I can now open stuff up with no problem.
Many thanks for your easy explanation,I have a learnt a little from that.
Dear friend, can you please see my problem, entitled 16 bit windows subsystem hooro experience, and if you could please help me...please.
vincentd, go thru the steps cjc outlined to reverest. but make certain to run different antiviruses & antispyware mentioned on this thread first before going thru the steps
