arielsages: Let me start with some basic questions. Have you tried to reboot your computer and try ipconfig again? Did you change anything on your computer since the last time you used ipconfig? Are you having any other problems?

I have the same problem as him, or rather similar.

In my laptop, after open cmd.

The dir would be C:\Doc~\UserName>

If i type any command, for example.

Ipconfig and/or Ipconfig /*

* refers to any attr in this case.

It would tell me that it does not recognize this command.

However, if i change the directory to C:\windows\system32

and i type ipconfig /*

it will show my ip and other stuff.

Any answer to this ?

Been rather lazy to find out why this happen? as i always cd c:\windows\system32 after i have enter cmd from start > run.
