Problem with Run Program

Hi, im asking for your help because every time I type cmd on Run, appears a problem that says "cmd is not a valid win 32 application". I try to found what this could be on google and they told me that it could be a virus or spyware on my system, but I run my antivirus and nothing appear. Also switch cmd on search engine from another cmd.exe and nothing. My antivirus is Avast, if someone could help me it would be very useful

It is probably a leftover problem from spyware or a virus.
Open Windows Explorer and go to C:\Windows\System32

Click Folder Options on the Tools menu.
Click the View tab
Select Show hidden files and folders, under Hidden files and folders

Now find and delete it
Don't touch, only
Check also for the file and delete it if it exists.

Warning: Don't delete cmd.exe and ping.exe only the files with .com extension. Be careful, because you are working with system files here.

Good luck
Please post some feedback or if you need more help

    Just a question: Are you sure your hidden files are shown?

    To check:
    Go to Start > Run
    Type cmd.exe instead of cmd
    If this works, i'm pretty sure there is a file called in your system32 folder.
    if cmd.exe does not work:
    Go to Start > Run again and type command
    This should work... This dos window looks pretty much like cmd.exe, but it cmd.exe is easier to use. In this case it makes no difference.

    Now you have opened a dos window (cmd.exe or

    now do the following actions, in the order shown, and press enter after each command:
    cd C:\
    cd windows
    cd system32
    the program will show whether the file has been found or no files have been found.
    if a file is found, type:
    i hope this is clear to you

    If you have questions, just ask!

Microsoft has answered this error. I'll list the link from MS's site.
Follow their instruction to help find the cause.
Ignore the references to win 2000. It's mentioned because win 2000 uses the NTFS file system, just like Win XP home & Pro.
From what I have read I would suggest you make sure you're antivirus software is updated & run a full system scan first.
Than follow MS to run chdsk.
If you need to test you're memory I suggest a free program.
Go to this link. Scroll down until you see three screen shots. Just below them is, ** Memtest86+ V2.01 (21/02/2008) **
You have the option of creating a bootable CD disk,
file: Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip) or a bootable floppy disk, file: Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win)
Either program will test you're memory for error's without you having to remove a DIMM.

Good luck etheros!
If I can be of more service, just ask.
