:welcome: blue to Bleeping Computer Forums!

 

Can you access your Windows OS and what changes were made before this started?

Thank you.I can load and use my computer normally I just can't access my command prompt.The only change that was made was when I unstalled sympathic endpoint.I had to delete the registry values related to Nortan endpoint.Other then that there wasn't any other changes.

Did you happen to have used any removal tools for the particular symantec software when removed?

 

Download MiniToolBox and run the program. Select
List Last 10 Event Viewers, List Installed Programs and List Users, Partitions and Memory Size then click Go.
A notepad will open then copy-paste the report on your next reply.

 

Download then run Farbar Service Scanner and checkmark all boxes.
Click Scan and then a Notepad text will open. Copy-Paste the report on your next reply.

What about trying it here:

"C:\Windows\SysWOW64\cmd.exe"

 

Does going to Start/Run and typing %comspec% work?

I just tried to do that and that doesn't work either.It tells me the file can't be found.
