There have been a lot of these problems lately. There must be some sort of plague on the web messing up people's autoexec.nt files. Look and see if you have a copy in your C:\Windows\Repair folder, and if you do, copy it to your System32 folder. What game is it you are trying to play?

Cool "The Plaque..."

I've never heard of a .nt file. I think that the problem is that theres some trojan horse going around changing system file's extentions! That's supposed to be called Autoexec.bat! Not Autoexec.nt!?!?

You should search your computer for the file name and try to change it's extention.

In Windows 98, its autoexec.bat, but in Windows 2000/XP, its autoexec.nt!!
