Hi!

I run a Windows XP and whenever I try to run my command prompt window I get an error saying that the system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows apllications. How do I fix this?

Thanks.

Thank you so much for the help!

Only another problem occurs...

When I type in "cmd" it comes up and then exits again, but it works when I type "command," is that normal? Also, when I try and use the command "netstat -n" nothing happens.

Thanks.

I suspect what you will find so........

Download pocket killbox from http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/killbox.exe & put it on the desktop where you can find it easily

now Start killbox paste the first file listed below into the full pathname and file to delete box

The file name will appear in the window and if the file exists it will appear in blue under that window then select standard file kill, press the red X button, say yes to the prompt and once the file deleted message comes up then repeat for each file in turn

C:\WINDOWS\system32\CMD.COM
C:\WINDOWS\system32\netstat.com
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ping.com
C:\WINDOWS\system32\regedit.com
C:\WINDOWS\system32\tasklist.com
C:\WINDOWS\system32\taskkill.com
C:\WINDOWS\system32\tracert.com

Then on killbox top bar press tools/delete temp files and follow those prompts and say yes to everything
