Thread: PC freezes after ALT+CTRL+DEL

  1. #1
    hey guys

    i dont know why, my computer freezes or becomes dead slow after i press ALT+CTRL+DEL, and the i tried the XP system restore thing, but it didnt restore anything. i tried 2 different dates, nothin happened
    Plus, i was trying to install a game from original cd (Secret Service), i got an error message

    16 but Windows Subsystem
    C\windows\system32\autoexec.nt The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft applications. Choose Close to terminate the application. CLOSE IGNORE

    if i press ignore nothin happens
    and i installed this game before and it worked fine

    I got
    Compac, AMD Athlon XP 18ghz
    Geforce 440 mx 64mb ddr
    512 ram

    put in your windows xp install cd.

    click start>run>type "expand X:\i386\autoexec.nt_" (replace x:\ with your cd drive letter).


    Then if the game still doesn't work try right-clicking>properties>compatability>and set it to use windows 98\me or windows 95 compatibility.


    I went through all of this yesterday morning with quake II lol.

    edit: and you don't have an 18ghz cpu.

    Doctor - Well stop banging it against the wall.
