cmd box & regit probs [RESOLVED]

Hi,

I have a problem with cmd and regedit, although command.com works fine! This is a fairly new XP build.

When I start cmd (from Run), I get a blank dos box with a flashing cursor, but no prompt. It stays like this for a minute or so, then I get the error "The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction" and an option to ignore or cancel. Both options terminate the dos box.

I have run CleanUp, Ad-aware SE, Spybot S&D, CWShredder, Ewido, Trend Housecall, installed AVG and Trojanhunter - all clean but still no working dos box or regedit.

Here is my HackThis log. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Paul

*Click Here to download Killbox by Option^Explicit.
*Extract the program to your desktop and double-click on its folder, then double-click on Killbox.exe to start the program.
*In the killbox program, select the Delete on Reboot option.
*Copy the file names below to the clipboard by highlighting them and pressing Control-C:

C:\Program Files\MsConfigs\MsConfigs.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\p2pnetwork.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\CMD.COM
C:\WINDOWS\system32\netstat.com

C:\WINDOWS\system32\tasklist.com
C:\WINDOWS\system32\taskkill.com

*Return to Killbox, go to the File menu, and choose "Paste from Clipboard".
*Click the red-and-white "Delete File" button. Click "Yes" at the Delete on Reboot prompt. Click "No" at the Pending Operations prompt.

After the reboot run HijackThis again. Check the following items in HijackThis.
Close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [winupdate] H:\Program Files\winupdate\winupdate.exe /auto

Reboot once more and post a new log.
Also let me know if you can use cmd and regedit again.

Thanks for your help. I've done everything you asked. Some of the files you described were not on my computer but most were.

Regedit now works (thanks) but cmd still doesn't.

New HJT log as requested. Thanks again - I appreciate it!

Copy the code below into notepad and save it as lookup.bat
Set Filetype to "All files"
dir %Systemdrive%\cmd.* /a h /s > files.txt
start notepad files.txt

That will open a file called files.txt. Post the content of that file, please.
