The command tells Windows to change directory to C:\Windows\Windows\system32\drivers.

Since it can't find the path, it means that one of the sub folders isn't present, that's why it gives out this error.

You are already here - C:\Windows. This means that the folder C:\Windows is present.

Based on your screenshot, our next step would be to verify if there's another folder named Windows in the C:\Windows folder.

To test it, try this command:

C:\Windows>cd Windows

If it gives out an error, that means that C:\Windows\Windows folder doesn't exist, which would explain why you can't change directory to C:\Windows\Windows\system32\drivers folder.

Jove, it appears that the code box is an attempt at a picture in Aorp's signature.

Queen-Evie,

I have had similar results, have any idea what causes that, there seems to be so much wasted space ?

Thanks dc3,
I'll get there in the near future, I hope.

Yeah sorry about that. I thought I took that out when I figured out it didn't work, guess not.
