My system recently got infected with a virus and i cleaned it using my antivirus software but my command prompt is acting weird.
I open command prompt and it gets directed to my "c:\documents and settings\admin\> ping" when i ping my router from here its able to ping no problem.
Now i type in 
"c:\documents and settings\admin\>cd c:\
It automatically pings another ip and clears it repeatedly
What should i do and how to replace/repair command prompt without running a OS repair.

What do you get if you type:


dir c:\ping.*


at any command prompt?
