    I've seen this with our 16bit software and what it is, is spyware. go to and run the online scan, then to be safe run spybot. then close any tsr's that are running.after you need to copy the autoexec.nt from the winnt\repair folder to the winnt\system32.

    Follow what Phish says. Once that's done, if you are still missing the file, you can copy the file from the \I386 folder (if you have one) or from your windows CD.

    Do the online virus scan first though. Something has removed/changed this system file and the install application can no longer read it properly.
