    Search your drive to be sure the file still exists there. Where is it? Any changes to environment variables?

    From a command prompt, type:

    PATH

    At a minimum, you should see these directories in the path.

    PATH=C:\WINNT\system32;C:\WINNT;C:\WINNT\System32\Wbem

    If you don't see them, the environment variables have been changed.
