When I try to uninstall any applications either through CONTROL PANEL..ADD
REMOVE PROGRAMS or through using MAGIC UTILITIES 2004 I get"

16 bit Windows Subsystem
C:\Windows\System32\Autoexec.NT. The system file is not suitable for
running MS-DOS and Windows applications. Choose 'close' to terminate the
application.

Any ideas? O.S. is Windows XP Professional SP2

Thanks In Advance

When you use toys like Magic Utilities you have only yourself to blame for
the problems they cause.
