Hello, Hope some knows what's going on with this..I've tried several times to
ask microsoft/dell what to do....
Whenever I run a 16-bit windows application I get a warning that the
autoexec.nt file is not in the system root path,etc...So I found on the
microsoft support area how to extract and put the autoexec.nt file into the
system32 folder...after I do this the 16-bit application runs fine...The
problem is that when I reboot the file no longer remains in the system32
folder...I've everything microsoft suggests, but they keep telling me to do
the same procedure...Reboot-not there again!

Seems to be an epidemic lately....

This can be caused by a trojan.

Get rid of the trojan.

Update your anti virus software and run a full system scan.

Copy the autoexec.nt file from C:\Windows\Repair to C:\Windows\System32.
And set Attributes for autoexec.nt to Read-only.

Read-only
[[Specifies whether this file is read-only, which means that it cannot be
changed or accidentally deleted.]]

1. Right click the file.
2. Properties.
3. Select: ? Read-only.
4. Click: Apply.
5. Click: OK.
