how i can download afree cmd.exe

cmd.exe, also known as the command prompt, is the command-line interpreter on Windows PCs. You do not need to download it it is already a part of Win XP.

All you need to do is click on Start, select Run and in the dialog box that opens type "cmd" and press Enter. A command prompt window will open.
