Did you also try Start/Run/Command?

I've seen this happen before...don't remember how I solved it, but think I ran chkdsk /r command and then defragged the system partition.

Inability to run regedit has historically proven to be one of the signs of infection.

Any problems accessing Windows Update?

Any other system anomalies which you have noted?

Hamluis is correct, this can be caused by an infection, but it can also be caused by the Config.nt, Autoexec.nt, Command.com files being either missing or damaged.

Try this.

Start> Run, type C:\windows\repair and then click OK.

Right click on Autoexec.nt and then click Copy.

Start> Run, type %sindir%\system32 and then click OK.

In the System32 folder, press Ctrl + V to paste the Autoexec.nt file in this folder.

Try Start>AllPrograms>Accesories

You can also look in C:/Windows/System32 there should be a cmd.exe there.
