Hi :) If I can make some input...
It may be related to some environmental variables issues.

Have you done any chnages to your system recently? Some software installations?

Please try to type in this command:
set
and press enter. Was it recognized?

Cheers,
Naat :)

The variables are set correctly.

Can you tell exactly what commands you've typed into the command prompt?

If you've been trying to type special characters into there without ^ or without ", the result would be exactly like presented on your screenshot.
But if ipconfig command doesn't want to run, then it's a little strange.
After careful analyze of that screenshots, I see where is probably the mistake.

I suppose the variable to Path should not be %systemroot% in those commands, but rather pointing to C:\Windows.

First:
  • Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore. The System Restore Wizard opens.
  • Click Create a restore point, and then click Next.
  • In Restore point description box, type a description for the restore point. Name it "Variables Fix" for easier recognition.
  • Click the Create button. The System Restore Wizard notifies you when the restore point is created.
Second:
Let's try to fix it that way:
  • Right-click "My Computer" & select "Properties."
  • Click "Advanced" tab.
  • Click "Environment Variables" button.
  • In the "System variables" box, scroll down to "PATH" and highlight it.
  • Click the "Edit" button.
  • In the "Variable value:" box, at every place where it exists replace the "%systemroot%\system32;" with "C:\WINDOWS\system32;" without my quotation marks
  • Make sure you include the semicolon at the end.
  • Click OK three times.
Try now and let me know the results.

Cheers,
Naat :)

And remember to leave one "C:\Windows;" at the beginning.

Sorry that haven't mention it to you in my previous post.
