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

    I went to the specified C:\windows\system32 and there was nothing with the name cmd.com or ping.com, also I try to look using search engine and nothing appears. What else can I do?
    P.P.S. there's a file with name "pagefileconfig" is this a spyware because its seems to me?

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 cmd.com and delete it
Don't touch command.com, only cmd.com.
Check also for the file ping.com 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 cmd.com 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 command.com)

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

    If you have questions, just ask!
    Success

My (Win XP SP2) command prompt does not work


First off, lets try a few things. This will help us narrow it down:

  • Try typing other known commands to see if they work (ipconfig for example)
  • Do a search on your computer for cmd.exe (you should only have 1, and it should be in the system32 folder.)
  • try typing cmd.exe instead of just cmd.
Give those a shot and report back. Depending on which one of these give you a problem, it could point to the correct fix.

The reason I say this is that your easiest solution may be to upgrade to SP3. The only times I've ever heard someone having this problem was also in SP2.

D:\ application can not run in Win32 mode


To correct and solve this error, follow this steps:

1. Run Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del or right click on Taskbar)
2. Stop wscript.exe process if available by highlighting the process name and clicking End Process.
3. Then terminate explorer.exe process.
4. In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…).
5. Type “cmd” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click OK.
6. Type the following command one by one followed by hitting Enter key:

del c:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a
del d:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a
del e:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a

c, d, e each represents drive letters on Windows system. If there are more drives or partitions available, continue to command by altering to other drive letter. Note that you must also clean the autorun files from USB flash drive or portable hard disk as the external drive may also be infected.
7. In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…).
8. Type “regedit” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click OK.
9. Navigate to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
10. Check if the value name and value data for the key is correct (the value data of userint.exe include the path which may be different than C drive, which is also valid, note also the comma which is also needed):

“Userinit”=”C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,”

If the value is incorrent, modify it to the valid value data.
