The fact that you have these problems are normally related to malware.
You need an antivirus and a firewall as soon as you can, it's imperative.
This is somewhat suicidal in today's digital world.
You need to install an antivirus program as soon as you can and run a complete scan of the computer. AVG
are excellent, free antivirus programs..
Never install more than one antivirus on your system - several together can cause problems and decrease performance.
You are also missing a firewall, which is another essential piece of computer software.
I would certainly recommend you install one, but it is perhaps not as important as an antivirus.Zonealarm
, and Kerio
are also good, free firewalls.

and see what it finds.
If nothing is found in the system32 you need to download a new one and copy it there.
You can download a cmd.exe from here
