Something wierd

By tpeleg ·
Sup all...

Heres the problem:
Example: Start-> Run-> cmd (enter) produces this error message: "Cannot find the file 'cmd' (or one of its components). Make sure the path and filename are correct and that all required libraries are available." Now, the weird thing is, the command prompt still opens. I get the same error message when opening regedit, net meeting (conf), etc... Even when I open Roxio EZ CD Creator 5 Basic, I get the same error message with 'null' in place of 'cmd', but Roxio still opens and works fine. This is really just anoying more then anything else. I really haven't had much time to look into it but I thought I'd post my question here while I look for the answer.

Thanks for any help...

I also just relized something. I think my mapped network drives aren't being saved. When I rebooted my comp (I rarely reboot my comp) I noticed that I had to redo my mapped drives. I also forgot to mention after the error message pops up and I click 'OK', it goes back to the Run window with the text of the last command I imputted.

Have you checked the event logs for messages occurring at the same time you receive the error messages.

Have you run SFC to ensure all system files are ok?

What other software is loaded on this system?

Would that suggest registry corruption? I also forgot to mention after the error message pops up and I click 'OK', it goes back to the Run window with the text of the last command I imputted.
