Hello-
Are their ways for an Admin or a Virus to disable the Netstat command prompt from running correctly? I've noticed on my home machine, that is in the process of being cleaned up, will run any variation of netstat, but close before I can read anything on the screen. Would this be due to the virus? And also I've noticed on my work's laptop I'm on right now, and my computer at the office, it does the same thing (closes immediatley after running). My guess is that it can be disabled and that is what the virus is doing to my computer.

Just curious...Thanks in advance!

If you start Netstat using "Start, Run..., netstat", the window will close immediately after running Netstat.

If you start it using "Start, All Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt" and then type "netstat" in the command prompt window, the command prompt window should stay open until you close it.

I am experiencing the same problem however when if I go the route you suggested in Windows XP home there is no Command Prompt listing under accessories. Any suggestions?

"Start, Run..., cmd" should also open a command prompt window. I think it should work, but I'm running XP Pro, so I can't say for sure.

OK, thanks

By going the cmd route I was then able to type in netstat -a and get it to come up and stay.

Appreciate the help!
