Preferred Solution: Command Prompt Error on Windows 7

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello everyone

Recently a problem has arisen with my system.

Previously I have been doing work that requires me to unplug my network connection and I need to check my IP address each time I plug it in again. I guess it's not set for static IP.
Anyways to do this I usually go into Command Prompt and type 'ipconfig'

Now however I just get "'ipconfig' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file".

The directory is the same as its always been, I can change it but it doesn't seem to matter what it is.

I've checked many other posts and is there something possibly wrong with my PATH variable? I used the command 'echo %PATH%' and it works, the list it gives is very garbled however.

I'm not sure what might have made this problem arise, but I would greatly appreciate any help.

Thanks!

I have a utility I run on some customers' machines that requires being run from safe mode. I already have the utility automated via batch, and would like to just run one SFX app and move on to the next machine, knowing that this app will reboot the machine into safe mode w/ command prompt, run my utility, and reboot the machine back into normal mode (the standard shutdown -r -t 01 is easy enough, but there are no modal options!). Also, if this can be done, how would I then make sure that the current user logs in automatically, rather than have safe mode stop at the log-in screen?

The utility in question is a simple "Common Software Package" which includes some software such as Reader and Flash. Some of the software included cannot be installed while an antivirus is running (at least any that have tamper-protection) due to the registry editing involved, but are completely positive in nature (one such software package simply checks the current registry vs. a backup it takes on each shutdown to look for any discrepancies, adjusted for installed software, of course). The packages do not require Windows Installer service to be running, so I have found SM w/ CP to be the best option.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Command is a command file. Sounds like you may have something attached to the exefile open procedure.

If you are comfortable with your registry editing skills. Look here first.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\open\command

The default value when you double click the
default key is:
"%1" %*
(this includes the quotes)
If anything else is behind this you may have a virus.

If this is windows 2000 make sure that you don't have the lovsan worm or other variants that use the RPC vulnerability.

Good Day!

This is my first post here in bleeping computer (technically second because I dropped a 'Hello' line for the new members thread) and I would first like to thank all active members and admins for giving countless hours to help others.

Now to my problem, I have been bothered for weeks by random popping of command prompts and saying that I have encountered an error in memory something something (I forgot the exact error message, I would post a screenshot once I get the error again). Just like 'pringles' once it pop... it never stop. The only way for it to stop is to reboot, although sometimes even if I reboot.. it comes back again and again and again. So, I decided to uninstall my corrupted AVG to install the latest version... only for me to find out that I can't uninstall it because an error keeps prompting on the uninstall screen. I also found out that I am the only one who can't access AVG's website. I managed to download the latest installer through CNET but I keep on getting a failed installation error for no clear reasons.

Hi,

My system has three OSes. Two Linux versions and Win XP-SP3. All of them are on different hard-disks of their own. On boot, i specify, which HD to boot from, in the boot menu from BIOS and accordingly boot from the respective Hard disk.

Most of the time, I use Win-XP. While shutting down the PC, i noticed that automatic updates were being installed. I accidentally happened to switch-off the power. Eversince, next boot, when i specify the Windows HD on boot menu, windows XP logo comes up and a blue screen appears and the system reboots to boot from Linux Disks (Default if I don't specify any disk from boot menu). I tried last working configuration, safe mode, safe mode with command prompt etc. But, same symptoms. I tried booting with WinXP CD. It tries loading the setup files and then comes to the blue screen with 0x0000007B error.

From, linux, i'm able to mount and see all the data and contents of the windows Disc.

Please help me to fix this. I need windows up and running badly. Thanks in Advance.

Please note, I do not have a floppy drive.

A:[SOLVED] Blue Screen Error with 0x0000007B, cannot get to command prompt, Win XP

Welcome to TSF, vrkrao :)

Part of Windows Update would include the monthly MSRT scan for viruses. If an infection was found in a System file like atapi.sys and removed by MSRT, it would lead to the 0x7B error you now see because the System file that was infected and now broken, is needed to boot Windows or that the (still infected) MBR points to a file that's been removed or modified.
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down...ils.aspx?id=16

The MRT.log (assuming it's written before shutdown), found in the Windows\Debug folder, should enable you to check whether the above fits your scenario, if so, it should detail which files were infected.

My boot record needs replacement. I have given the bootrec command from the install CD a few times now and get the disk not found error. Is this drive beyond boot repair? Would one of the tools like the NTDLeader tool or Hirens etc at least recognize the HD?

If unbootable I'd at least like to start the process of getting some data transferred using a different HD.

At the System Recover options of the installer CD, I don't get anything in the window for operating system.

These errors occurred when trying to clone one drive to another with Clonezilla, a Linux tool used to copy disks. It contains an option which I thought to refresh the boot sector. Such a command should not have effected the source disk but who knows.

System is running Windows XP

The user took it to me (I built it about 2 years ago from a TigerDirect barebone deal)when she lost all Internet connectivity. I had installed AVAST which was still running but she had also installed AVG. Both were resident. I also noticed that she has installed some type of "PC Power Boost" program which I did not recognize.

While I can see all the files using the Windows File Explorer, while in a command prompt window no files are displayed with the DIR command. I can CD all I want to navigate the directories but I cannot see any files. Windows does not show that any files are hidden when I check the attributes.

Malwarebytes located a few files but rebooting after removing them did not fix this issue. When I tried to run the AVG program in safe mode, it started but returned to the start screen after about 2 seconds with nothing found or removed.

I suspect that there is a BOOT virus or rootkit installed.

at a command prompt, it runs fine, but if the same line is included in a batch file, "The system cannot find the specified path" where the path is :


Code:
\\Centralsrv1\marketng\R
.

I know the ampersand is the issue, but why it works in one place and not the other (I need it to work in the batch file) is making me nuts.

Can anyone offer a way around it?

Thanks!!!!

A:Windows XP SP3 Command Prompt Issues

Hi
Try doing a directory listing.
go to Start -> run -> cmd -> then type

Code:
dir /x "\\Centralsrv1\marketng"
this should give you the directory listing of marketng including the 8dot3 short name format of "R & D"
It would probably be something like R&D~1 (I think it is case sensitive - not sure)

Then in your batch file use

Code:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\EXCEL.EXE" "\\Centralsrv1\marketng\R&D~1\Excel\Instant\IG Reports\IGmaster.xls"
Don't know if it will work bt it's worth a try.

Hi All

What is the main difference between Powershell and Command Prompt? I use cmd quite a lot, and I know that
certain functions in Powershell, such as diskpart, gets referred to command prompt, then what is the use for powershell?
Why should one use it and what is the main benefit of using it?

thank You
 

A:Windows Powershell vs Command Prompt

In a nutshell, there are a lot more commands available to a powershell user than to a cmd user. In most cases the names of the old CMD commands have been set up as Aliases (redirect commands) to the new powershell command that does the same thing.

The relative simplicity of CMD makes it easier to learn and use.
The age of CMD means batch scripts are likely to work on earlier versions of Windows, whereas powershell scripts may not.

On the other hand there will be things that you can do with power shell that you cannot do (or cannot easily do) with CMD.

Hello,
I was wondering if there is any way to get ctrl + left/right arrow working on the windows command prompt? If I could edit commands by searching for a word like we do in vi by using '?' or '/' characters, it would be even great. Also can I get ctrl + v paste working someway?

I think my computer has been hit with a virus.  I have an old Dell computer running Windows XP.  I cannot get into Windows in regular or safe mode and am getting a cmd.exe message that says " C:\Documents and Settings\User Name\My Documents\139d2e78.exe is not recognized as an internal or external command.  
 
I have tried running a malwarebytes scan from  Hiren's Boot CD.  I have also taken the hard drive out and put it into another computer and run malwarebytes and Kaspersky 2013.  Both of these programs picked up a few trojans, but still left with unusable system.  I am close to reformatting the hard drive and starting over. I have backed up using Macrium reflect from Hiren's Boot CD.  Any ideas would be appreciated.

I bought computer that I do not know password. I dont want to reinstall windows. I read that restarting computer and press f8 and choose safe mode with command prompt. Problem is my computer loads the drivers as normal on the black DOS screen but when it gets done and is suppose to give a command prompt it does not. It for some reason goes to the unwanted log in screen in safe mode. But that does me no good because that screen again requires password. How do I get the stupid command prompt in the scenario?

Hi, so my laptop is not booting up.
The problem is that my keyboard is damaged and I need to use a wired/wireless USB keyboard, however at initial login screen it gives me two options launch start up repair or run start windows normally, however my keyboard will not let me tab or use up/down, although my mouse works but that is useless on these screens.
So every time it launches start-up repair because I cannot change option.
Now, here is the kicker! It lets me use USB keyboard and mouse on System recovery options!

So, I am stuck in this system recovery screen and trying to run things in command prompt, but not found the solution yet.

If I can command CMD to run "start windows normally" then it should get me back on track!!!

Anybody know this command?
I searched online for a couple of hours and had no luck.

I also tried to force safe mode via cmd, but also stuck in a secondary loop of safe mode in system recovery also. Any tips on how to undo this would be great also.

My laptop is an asus g53jw with win7 build 7600.

Thanks

Ok So I got myself into a unique bind here. I was trying to install some custom system files (for a theme) and I did it wrong and now I cant open explorer.exe . I dont want to goto a backup because this is a easy fix. (in my view). So I need to know how to run command prompt with administrative privleges from command prompt.

I am trying to do this command:

copy explorer.exe C:\Windows\

So if there is also another command I can just tack onto that that gives me admin rights to do it. I would be happy.

I am writing a VBA macro in Excel and have hit a wall. I am trying to get excel to open a command prompt and make it execute a command. The problem I am having is if I try to do anything but open another program, it throws an error back at me.

I can open the command prompt using:
Code:
Call Shell("cmd.exe" & dosCmd, vbNormalFocus)
I can also open Acrobat which is the program I need using:
Code:
Shell "C:\program files\adobe\acrobat 9.0\acrobat\acrobat.exe", vbNormalFocus
However if I simply wanted to open a PDF file, I have the code to that without opening a command prompt.

I need to open the PDF document on a specific page, and to my knowledge the only way to do this (apart from manually) is to use the command prompt. However I have no idea how to get VBA to put the command in the command prompt, hit enter and then close the prompt.

There are 2 commands that need to be executed in DOS (I'm not sure if there is a way to combine the commands)

They are:

Code:
cd c:\program files\adobe\acrobat 9.0\acrobat
and

Code:
start acrobat.exe /A "page=10=Open Actions" "M:\Full Scores\allegro.pdf
These open the pdf document called allegro on page 10.

I am completely stuck. Out of ideas. I've searched the length and breadth of the internet and can find nothing to point me in the right direction. So I was hoping one of you fine people could. Thank you so much, James

Opening a command prompt in Windows 7 and running any command results in error messages such as the ones below (in this case a dir command):01/28/2010  09:06 AM    The system cannot find message text for message number 0x2373 in the message file for Application.                                       Windows      The system cannot find message text for message number 0x2378 in the message file for Application.      The system cannot find message text for message number 0x2379 in the message file for Application.For other commands it references "System" rather than "Application" in the error message.  I've seen other posts online describing the same behavior linked to the copies of Win7 distributed at the Gartner Symposium in October as part of the general availability announcement (this is where I got my copy).  Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
