After running 'Anti-malware' I restarted my PC and got the wallpaper screen, but no icons, no toolbar and a window that pops up saying:
"windows cannot open this file: command.com
windows needs to know what program created it......" etc.
I have opened it with notepad but am not savvy enough to understand the contents, this is how it begins (there is much more)
%1 device %2
&Please insert volume %1 serial %2-%3
%File allocation table bad, drive %1
!Insert disk with %1 in drive %2
!Press any key to continue . . .
Terminate batch job (Y/N)?Cannot execute %1
Error in EXE file
"Program too big to fit in memory
No free file handlesBad Command or file name
Memory allocation error&
Cannot load COMMAND, system halted
Cannot start COMMAND, exiting
Top level process aborted, cannot continue
I tried many of the tips suggested online for the problem of 'no toolbar, no icons' using the Task Manager, including a system restore, but when I restarted, I got back to the same old command.com window.
Can anyone help me!?
ps I apologise if this topic has already been covered - if so could you please direct me to the posting?
