Wiped Command Prompt Clean...


Recommended Posts

I am a moderately frequent user of command prompt.


However using it today I noticed that netuser/ipconfig/ping/command.com/help/almost all commands aren't working. I get the message

'ping' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.


I'm quite sure it has something to do with iobit AdvancedWindowsCare. I've tried restoring my reg but it hasn't solved my problem.


Searching through google I have the conclusion that it MAY have something to do with it messing up my paths in my Enviromental Variables.


Could anyone sugget how to solve my problem.



EDIT: Sorted. Just needed to add %PATH% to system32 to solve it.

Hi nn9801,


It sems to be a path problem.


If restore to an earlier time by "System Restore" did not solve your problem, you can try:

Command Prompt type chkdsk /F=>Enter=>type Y=>Enter=>Restart,

If it doesn't work, try to use it through:

Local disk (system disk)=> right click=>Properties=>Tools=>Error Checking=>Check Now...=>chek "Automatically fix system errors" checkbox=>click "Start button.


You can also try,

"sfc /scannow" from start=>Run.

Or, if you have ASC 3 RC1, use the same utility from Utilities section.

(You need your Windows installation media for that if you have not copied "i386" to under C: and changed the path.)

"sfc/scannow: Scans all protected system files immediately and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions. This command may require access to the Windows installation source files."

Please read : http://www.updatexp.com/scannow-sfc.html


I can't think of something else at the moment.


I hope this helps.



EDIT: I didn't know that you edited. :grin: that you solved it.
