    For some reason, I no longer have a cmd.exe file. Is there a place where I can go to download it?

    Press the Windows key + R to open a Run box.

    Type regedit.

    Browse to:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options

    Can you see cmd.exe under Image File Execution Options?

    I am unable to locate:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options

    Where in the c:\ do I need to go?

    I found the place where the cmd.exe is supposed to be, but it is not there.
