you mean this: c:/windows.system32.cmd.exe. or
c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe ?

can you post a screenshot perhaps ?

This is a command prompt window which is very common with windows
Now, is this loading up at random or is it coming up at startup only ?
can you close it?

a screen shot would still be nice
you may want to check MSCONFIG / startup tab to see if this cmd.exe file is running at startup and/or any sort of .bat file

good luck

so, this window comes up, and goes away at random intervals ?
not just at startup, but after every 5 mins or 10 mins or whenever it feels like it ??

Hi olliex, Welcome to TSG!!

I have merged both of your threads into this one so please reply here.


Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.

Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
