I know I may be a little behind times, but the only word
processor I have ever had is Microsoft Works for Windows.
Since installing SP2, when I try to access the Works
program, I get the following error message:

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\AUTOEXE.NT. The system is not suitable
for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications.
Choose 'Close' to terminate application.

The title of the error message is 16 bit Windows
Subsystem.

Am I out of luck? Will I never be able to use Microsoft
Works? Is there a way to fix this problem? Any help is
appreciated. Margaret Lambkin
