PING command no longer found?

By TomSal ·
I'm a bit confused how this happened. I have Windows 2000 Professional, for the longest while I could run the basic ping, netstat, tracert, etc. commands from the command prompt of Win2kPro.

Now those commands don't work. I get an error returned saying that they are invalid or not found --something to that effect.

Anyone know how re-install those utilites?

Go to Task Manager --> Processes --> and make sure the LSASS.EXE is operational on your computer. If it is not, then find out why and go from there.

Most of these utilities should be located in c:\winnt\system32... make sure that they are still there.

Check Event Viewer for warnings/errors on disk errors (potential failing of the hdd), networking problems, etc.

You may be able to resolve this issue by installing the latest service pack or security roll-up for Win2000.

If all of the above fails, I'd also recommend trying a re-install of the network adaptor and protocols.

Hi Anna, thanks for your quick reply. I knew about re-installing the protocol (TCP/IP) I was just wondering if there was a faster way (that didn't require re-boot) to fix this. I'll just re-install now though.. thanks.
