How to delete win xp program from the command prompt to free up memory

Posted by on

  • Tracy Dec 10, 2014

    Hi Jill Thiery, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box?

    What are you trying to delete? Win XP is the operating system, not a program. Or, are you trying to delete/uninstall a program which is installed to Win XP? Is there a reason you cannot uninstall via the standard control panel>add/remove programs list? Are you wanting this program permanently uninstalled, or do you want it to not run at start-up?

SOURCE: unable to load dos prompt

This is probably caused by a virus. Try scanning it with your antivirus program, after you make sure your virus definitions are up-to-date. You can also run Trend Micro's Housecall if you have an internet connection. It is free. Just do a search for it, run it, and see if it finds anything.
Hijackthis is another good resource to try. Find a copy on the internet (it is free) then post your log that it makes on a website for others to help you find the bad files that are causing the problem. ASP free forums has this type of help.
FYI- another way to start the command prompt is to go to Start > Run > type cmd >hit enter. You can try to see if it starts this way, but I bet it is a virus or other malware.

How to repair missing wininet.dll?


If you see an error related to the wininet.dll file being deleted or missing, copy this file from the c:\windows\system32 directory of a working Win XP Pro
or Win Vista computer onto a flashdrive, then use the following procedure to copy it onto the failing system.

  1. At the boot screen (the first thing to appear at power-up), hit the F8 function key.
  2. Select 'Safe Mode with Command Prompt' and continue.
  3. In the command prompt window, type the letter of your flash drive, either d: or e: until the drive appears as e:> in the prompt window.
  4. Type 'dir' to see the wininet.dll file on that flashdrive.
  5. Once you see that file, type 'copy wininet.dll c:\windows\system32'.
  6. Unplug the flashdrive and reboot the failing PC.
Once you succeed in reviving the failed computer, go to c:\windows\system32 and right click on the wininet.dll file then copy and paste it to a save name (recommended name: wininet-copy.dll). This allows direct copy of that file back into wininet.dll if the problem reoccurs.

If you suspect an anitvirus engine or some other application deleted this file - and if it occurs again, make note of what was being performed, immediately before the failure mode. This will lead you to the offending program needing attention.

Good luck, hope this helps.

Hard drive failure


Hi, you have nothing to type there. You mean you have chosen the 1st section that opens recovery console,right? not that one. You should see the Terms of Agreement in your WinXP cd first, press F8. A section containing to install a Windows XP appears, Press Enter. Then that's the time it will search for your previous Win xp installation. In will then let you choose whether you will install a fresh copy of WinXP OR to Repair it. Choose the Repair. It will automatically repairs and format your Harddisk without deleting your files in it.  IF there's no Option to repair it, that's the time you will have to go to Recovery Console.
  • To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps: 
    Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer. 

    Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
    When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
    If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
    When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
    At the command prompt, type the appropriate commands to diagnose and repair your Windows XP installation. 

    For a list of commands that are available in Recovery Console, type recovery console commands or help at the command prompt, and then press ENTER. 

    For information about a specific command, type help commandname at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
    To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
If still you cannot get through to that, drop me a comment again and tell me what you have done. Feel free to ask me.
