Command prompt problem

  1. I can open my command prompt in my desktop,
    But after 3 to 5 seconds, it will do an exit automatically, even though I didn’t do anything.
    What should I do?

    Sounds like you better write the beginning of your command before it goes away. I will add that if the rest of your O.S. is working, count your blessings.

    Does regedit do the same thing?

    If so, you may have W32/Swen@MM virus, which can stop these commands from running.
    fixswen.inf will repair those files back to normal.
    Save the fixswen.inf file to your local hard disk, right-click on the file and choose install.
    Stinger will remove the threat itself.

    Can also be a memory issue and possibly a windows system file issue
    Either Memtest or running sfc /scannow will fix those.

    yes "kimsland" but this time when i open my regedit on my desktop. there is a notification that, it was disabled by administrator. even though i logged in, in administrator account.....
    i scan my antivirus grisoft but its useless..... is there any big problem on my operating system that can harm my important files?
  5. Did you carry out kimsland's instructions? The fact that you can't run regedit as an administrator points to your system having been compromised.

    Just saw this on another thread (thanks to kritius)

    FixPolicies will:
    • Repairs policy entries made by malware that block access to Regedit, Control Panel, .etc
    • Resets defaults for System Restore, Windows Updates, re-enables AutoRun
    • Fixes missing folder options (right-click menus), and registry Run keys
    Download it to Desktop
    Double Click to install (just creates an unzipped new folder "FixPolicies")
    Open the FixPolicies folder (created on Desktop)
    Double click on Fix_Policies.cmd
    Restart your computer

    Test Regedit again
