Hi and welcome

If you install the game in compatibility mode (right click installer>properties>compatibily mode>check xp) It might run. Obviously an older game.

Good luck and let us know if you need help

Are you using a "found" version of Windows instead of a version straight from Microsoft? That could be the issue here.

I'd try to run from an elevated command prompt:

sfc /scannow

Here's the autoexec file for Windows\System32:
