over the last two weeks, as an I.T. Technician myself, i have noticed that i cannot use cmd.exe or regedit.exe, as a result i have been unable to install programs requiring both of these programs.
i have looked at several posts about this on a few forums, one was on Bleeping computer, the problems for those individuals were fixed, i followed the instructions given and they did not work for me.

as a result, i have formatted my computer and re-installed my Windows XP Professional SP2 OEM disc which helped for a margin of about 5 minutes, cmd and regedit did work for that time something had changed within the 5 minutes to stop these programs from working.

i resulted to renaming the cmd.exe to command.exe and regedit.exe to reg3dit.exe, they are currently working when i type in those names on the run command, although the programs i am installing don't recognise the change and still can't install as a result.

i have now become a member of this website to seek additional information and help.

this folder is called "runauto.." i cannot view what is in it, i cannot delete it.

i am still unable to use cmd.exe or regedit.exe
