I have Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit. I was trying to download a program with no new versions. Anyways I performed the following from tipandtrick.net:

Typed "%windir%\SysWoW64\cmd.exe" in command promt
and then "%programfiles" and pressed Enter.
Since then when command prompt opens it says "Windows\system32"

I can't even find SysWoW64 in the command prompt anymore.
How can I change everything back?
Have I changed anything at all?

You could always try using a System Restore. What program are you trying to run that cannot use WOW64? Have you checked your Windows directory to see if SysWow64 is there? You're not alone in your problem, I went to Tip and Trick and one user is experiencing issues after performing this operation, too.
