OK, I did a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate and for some reason my cmd is missing. When I click start then type cmd in the search window it comes up with nothing. Any suggestions???

And you didn't stop by here? Just a little detour (if you drove) east on I-80. :)

I did type "cmd.exe" in the start menu search window and it said "No items match your search."

1. Is cmd.exe in C:\Windows\System32?

2. Can you get a Command prompt window by Start - All Programs - Accessories - Command Prompt?

Right click Computer - Properties - Advanced system settings - Environment Variables... - in System variables does

3. ComSpec have value C:\Windows system32\cmd.exe?

4. Path have value C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;<and more stuff>?

In Brian's partial defense, he was replying to Megabite. :) Totally ignoring you. :p:D

Hey Guys, since it was a new install I simply did a new (re)install. Solved the problem.
