My friends Windows 8.1 laptop has recently started throwing up 50 to 100 command windows upon startup all with the same error in them.
The command window says" Error: The system was unable to find the specified registry key or value." and the error dialogue box on top says" Windows cannot find 'bat=exe'.
See attached screenshot.
I'm imagining a registry error has occurred. I've used Ccleaner and Malware bytes on it, but aside from many fixes I've performed, we are left with the bat=exe error.
Short of a system restore, I'm imaging a regedit fix.
Thanks in advance.
