I cannot use the writing tools in wordperfect office 12. I get an error
message
that says "internal error." I am told by Corel that I need to edit the
registry. When
I follow their instructions and type in "regedit" at the "run" command box I
get the following error message "16 bit ms-dos subsystem. The system file is
not suitable for running ms-dos and microsoft windows applications. " How
can I edit the registry?

Error message when you install or start an MS-DOS or 16-bit
Windows-based program:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;324767&Product=winxp

This can also be caused by malware. Make sure your computer is clean:

Also, AVAST (antivirus software) can be the cause if you have WinXP SP2
installed:

You can put back the standard version of autoexec.nt/config.nt by
copying a backup copy held in %windir%\repair\ to %windir%\system32\
(%windir% is typically C:\Windows) instead of using the procedure in
the KB article above.

You've got malware, and need to scan for it.

Your running a program name'd regedit.com (the malware)
to edit your reg type in: regedit.exe
