Dont understand this error msg from a CD setup exe

Long story short, Im trying to launch a setup.exe from a CD and this is all im getting,

"C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXE.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and mircosoft windows applications. "

Im running XP and I tried copying the setup to desktop and still nothing... what can I do? I need to run this exe.. thanks

It's autoexec.nt.....But anyway, a file "is" corrupt or spyware related. Let me try the searchfunction. I have a download link for the fix...


Found it: Look at the last page, my post for the XPFix.exe file
