Okay so no commands I type in command prompt - not help, not ipconfig, nothing - work when I try doing so. The response is that the command is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Any ideas? 100 brownie points to the first one to diagnose the problem :whistling:

Wow, that sounds like a few things have been messed up! Have you had a word with the malware section, or even suspect you may have had a virus that might have caused this??

A couple of thoughts, try changing directories from C:\documents and settings\account name> to C:\Windows. It may be the file path is corrupt and most command line utilities are in the Windows folder.

If you have a Windows install CD for the version of XP your running you can try to repair the systems files by going to Start /Run /open=sfc /scannow.

Progress!

When I CD to the directory H:/Windows/System32, H: being my root directory, I can access all the commandz0rs. So how do I set it up so that it automatically thinks to look there?

Download FIXPATH2.ZIP. Extract the files to a folder in C:\, like C:\FIXPATH2.

RUNNING THE PROGRAM:
  • Open a command prompt window (START-->RUN and type cmd and click OK), navigate to the location where the FIXPATH.EXE file is located, and run FIXPATH.EXE.
  • It will display some preliminary information, and ask if it should continue.
  • If it successfully updates the Path value in the registry, you will need to
    reboot for the change to take effect.
If you have any questions about what this is doing, then make sure you read the FIXPATH.TXT file that was included in the zip file you downloaded and should now be located in C:\FIXPATH2, or whatever folder you extracted it to.
