Hi,

I was trying to get cmd to work but when I type it in the run box I get the message "windows cannot find 'cmd". make sure you typed it in correctly etc etc."
Regedit, and Command both work. And I've already ran updated malwarebytes with no luck. With research on another site i was told to copy the files Config.nt, Autoexec.nt, Command.com, into system32 but that also did nothing.

type %windir%\system32\cmd.exe and see if it comes up. If it does, type path in the cmd window and paste the results here.

Does cmd.exe actually exist in %windir%\system32\? You may want to run a sfc /scannow

"Command" and "cmd" are the same.

If one works and the other doesn't...you probably need to run chkdsk /r, IMO.

Look in c:\windows\system32
Is there a file named cmd.exe?

You may want to run sfc /scannow
