MCI Command handling Window

Q: MCI Command handling Window

The problem began about 3 weeks ago. At shutdown, sometimes, "Layered Hidden Window" error warning appears. IF that can be closed [ sometimes the only way to shutdown is to pull the power ], MCI Command handling window warning appears. Both warnings appear to be standard Windows XP error screens. Nothing in event viewer.

NO popups appear, using IE or FF.

Norton AV finds nothing.

I searched the internet and found entries from May 2004.

I have tried to download find-all.zip, but I am unable. Using IE 6 SP1 & FF 1.5, when I click on a link in the message cited above, or a link in other messages with "MCI command handling Window", I am taken to
http://www10.brinkster.com/expl0iter/freeatlast/pvtool.htm, where find-all.zip is displayed as a link. When I click on the link, I am taken to http://www10.brinkster.com/expl0iter/freeatlast/FNF/ . There, I am notified that: Directory Listing Denied

I have a set of scheduled tasks, all of which run programs written in Open Object REXX. Consequently, the Command Prompt windows where these tasks runs inherit their icons (at the top left of the window) from the rexx.exe program that handles my scripts.

This means that all of these REXX tasks display the same icon in the taskbar, or system area, which is unhelpful.

I doubt that there's any way of influencing the icon from my REXX code itself, but is there some sort of wrapper program that I could run, which would allow me to choose different icons for each of the scheduled tasks? Perhaps by running my REXX from some program other than a Command Prompt window?

I'll also go and ask the REXX community, so we'll see who gets there first!

I realise that this is something of a long shot, but if I don't ask, I'll never get...

I want to hide this. I'm running a python progam (if that matters) and it always has that open on my taskbar. I want to hide it. I don't care where it goes or how much time it takes, I just want to hide it. So I never have to deal with it. Maybe make it a system process or something? I don't know.

I have used the @="cmd.exe /s /k pushd \"%V\"" type of Registry mod to obtain a context menu "Open elevated command window here" menu item, such as in the "Open elevated command window here" thread ( Open elevated command window here ).

However, the admin cmd window, even though it says "Administrator:" in the title bar, will not seem to work with the REG command (e.g., "REG SAVE [...]", etc.). If I even just type "reg /?" on the cmd line, it just jumps to the next (new) cmd line prompt, without any apparent action. (And, DISKPART will work here, even though REG doesn't.)

[The REG command works fine when I open a pinned cmd.exe link with Admin privileges.]

So,

1. Has anyone else noticed this?

2. And, if I'm not the only user in the universe to have this "feature", does anyone know of a workaround?

Thanks.

A:No REG Command in "Open elevated command window here" DOS Box

Hello Fred, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Is this the tutorial you used below to add "Open elevated command window here"? Open Command Window Here as Administrator
The REG /? command works for me using this when I right clicked on C:\Users and Open elevated command window here.
Do you have your UAC notification settings set to at least the default or top level? Normally when you use "Open elevated command window here", you will get a UAC prompt to approve before the elevated CMD window opens. If you do not get a UAC prompt, then this may be why you are having this issue.

Hope this helps for now,
Shawn

This is a guess; are yout looking for a "TEXT" file? If so, the extension is "txt", not "tex".

Sometimes when i left click my mouse, for no reason the right buttons menu appears under the pointer. It doesnt matter where I click. Mine goes away however when the computer is restarted. Can you use your keyboard to navigate your computer? Or is everything locked.

If it is the later it would seem like a malware issue

I am trying to find the VBA command that will bring up the Print window similar to when I do "CTR+P" then once i specify my print criteria(Example: # of copies, selection of pages etc..) then once I press ok my macro continues with the remainder of the code?
It this possible. I know I can have VBA to print whatever I program it to do, but I am looking more to getting the Print window since the print criteria would be different depending on the user.

When I've been using Linux computers, they had an "Open Terminal Here" command:
1) From right-clicking on a folder, it opens one inside that folder.
2) From right-clicking on a blank area, it opens one in the current folder.

On Windows XP Home, I installed the Open Command Window Here PowerToy some time ago. It does the first of these two things. Unfortunately, I usually want the second. I can get round this by remembering to open a command window before I go into the current folder; going up one level, relocating the folder in question, opening a command window, and going back down again; or opening one in a folder below (if that exists), and doing "cd ..". However, this seems to be one of the most-used features on my computer, and after hundreds of times, I start to wish for something faster. Any ideas on how I can get the second thing, or something just as quick to use?

BackgroundCMD is a command prompt folder background shell extension. It allows you to start a command prompt (an instance of cmd.exe) from within any directory that you're currently browsing.There are many command prompt shell extensions out there. However, as far as I can tell, none of them allow you to open a console window in the current directory that you're browsing. Most will only allow you to right-click a folder and have the command prompt start in that folder.http://www.roggel.com/NGNeer/BackgroundCMD/

I'm working on a website that has a list of artists. I've built a new, smaller window that pops up for each artist with the original window still there, however I can't figure out how to create a link/button that closes that small window. I've searched the net and I've poured over 2 books, so maybe I'm not looking for the right thing.

This has to be an easy thing, right? Do I see some of you out there nodding your heads???

Thanks in advance!

When I run Command prompt from accessories (using a shortcut) I see cmd.exe as a process using task manager. However it does not appear under the application tab and there is no window.
Cmd.exe will run ok directly from c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe or pressing the windows key and typing cmd.exe into the search field.
I read somewhere that HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Console\Fullscreen must be set to zero. I did that but it made no difference.
Another suggestion was delete the following registry keys. However that made no difference either.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy] mode
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies

If I start up in safe mode or login as a different user it works perfectly.
I have a feeling it is a carryover from Windows Easy Transfer when I migrated from xp.
Up till now I have lived with it by just using cmd.exe directly. However I have a new application that that uses cmd.exe and is being effected by it.

A:Command Prompt has no window

There may be some damaged or corrupt system files. If you haven't already done so, try running a System File Checker scan from an elevated command prompt (Option Two, this tutorial.) If damaged/corrupt files are found it may take running SFC three or more time to fix everything it can.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If there were no integrity violations found after running SFC see if you can get cmd.exe to "run as administrator" using one of the options in this tutorial.

I searched the forum and could not find anything on this. I ran a virus (Avast) scan on my laptop running Windows XP and it had alot of viruses. It also ran a scan after rebooting and before windows loaded and cleaned out a bunch of that way. But now I cannot open a command window. I choose Run from the Start menu and enter "CMD" and hit enter, but nothing happens. I started down this road because it was running really slow and neither IE8 nor Firefox would connect to the internet, it would just display, 'Internet connection reset." The other computers on my little network are fine, so I know its not a problem with the router or DSL modem. Any ideas on how to get my command window back? I need to run IPCONFIG to figure out my internet issue.

A:cannot open command window

It is possible the cmd.exe file is gone. Find one either on in the Windows/ServicePackFiles/i386/ folder or grab a copy from another XP machine and drop it back in the Windows/System32/ folder.

Hi guys, please anybody move this thread, I didn't know where to post

I have the following problem... a friend of mine owns an Acer Aspire One netbook with XP and he wanted me to install Windows 7 (RC). Well, I did so and it worked for weeks.
Now (I don't know what he was doing) there's always a bluescreen when booting, but so fast, I can't read anything. So I decided to re-install but first I have to recover the UMTS Software from T-Mobile and some pics.

Now I bootet from USB and opened the command window. There's another USB stick to save, but the problem is: I don't know how to write/copy.

DIR D: - works great
DIR D:\Program Files - doesn't work
DIR D:\Program_Files - doesn't work

Could you tell me, how to deal with it?
Next question: How to copy? I would try xcopy D:\Program Files\T-Mobile\*.* E:\Recovery\ /s/e/f

Please help me

For all DRIVES, <shift>|right-clicking displays OPEN COMMAND WINDOW HERE in the context menu, above the first separator. That item opens the command prompt.

But for all other folders the OPEN COMMAND WINDOW HERE item displays below the first separator in the context box, and clicking on it returns "create an association in Default Programs." I tried associating CMD with CMD32.exe. No go.

After a Net search, I imported reg files or made manual reg changes suggested in this forum and others that write to the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT|DIRECTORY and/or DRIVE keys. Same result.

Restoring an image of W7 just after it was first installed, I saw that the prompt did correctly open in some additional Explorer <shift>|right-click folders, but not all.

Can others confirm the same behavior, please - or suggest fix for what's gone awry?

A:Open Command Window Here

Borate, if I do what you say, then I see the "open command window here" option in both drives and regular folders. The specific placement of the option in the context menu varies - and it's never above the first separator. I guess this means that different programs install their own items in the context menus and you have a different set of problems installed.

Now, clicking on that option just opens a command prompt for me, no problems there. For fixing your problem, try this tutorial by Brink and also look for related tutorials at the end of the page.

This one is hard to describe, but I'll bet someone else has seen it. When I turned on my PC yesterday, Windows seems to start ok. The XP logo came up, but then a command window (square box with a blue top border) popped up with an unintelligible character in the title border, and another unintelligible character inside the box. The Close Window X in the upper right hand cornber would not close it and I could not use CRTL-ALT-DEL to stop it. The only option available is to select an OK button in the box which then seems to allow Windows to load properly.

I noticed immediately that it changed all my desktop icons to .LNK files and they all looked different. I immediately ran a Norton Virus scan but it found nothing. After researching on the web for LNK file problems/viruses I looked in my file associations listing and saw that the EXE file association had been deleted, and that the LNK entry did not have Shortcut associated. I made these changes and the icons now look normal, but when I try to access them to run almost any application I get an Access Denied error.

I called Norton's help line (at $100 cost) and they told me to log out and log back in as Administrator. The system would not allow me to do that and, after an hour of other failures, Norton told me to call the PC mfr (emachines/Gateway) to find out how to obtain the Administrator password.

For a few days, a DOS window pops up briefly, first at windows start up but then throughout the session. I haven't determined any trigger. It looks like it's doing something with a temporary file --creating, deleting?? not sure as it is only up briefly, but I am able to read the changing file names of the naming convention je*.tmp. I have seen je98.tmp and je288.tmp. I have done WE searches and looked in the temp file folder. Probably the names are generated on the fly. I cannot relate it to anything new I have changed or installed. I did install Malwarebytes' Antimalware last week and there was a Mozilla Firefox update earlier in the week, but I think this started days after the first install and not really sure when the Firefox update was.

Hey,

I have had this computer for over 2 years now, running the same OS (XP Media Centre Ed.). And today I noticed that when I try opening a "cmd" window from "Run.." in the start menu it doesn't work.

I don't know how to best describe what happens when I try to run it but it looks like "explorer.exe" is refreshing (the taskbar disappears as well as all icons on my desktop, and shortly (4 or 5 seconds) after reappears).

I have never previously had this problem when attempting to open cmd.exe. I initially tried restarting the computer, this solved nothing. So now I am clueless as to how to proceed to fix the problem. Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks for your time,

Jimmy.

Hi All,

Just joined up here though I have been visiting for tips etc.. for a little while. Anyway the issue I have is related to a Dos/Command prompt window in Windows XP (Ultimate).

In all previous versions of windows, when a dos window is opened, you can drag and drop a file or folder name into the window, and the prompt puts the full path and name of the file/folder there for you.
In Vista, it wont let me drag anything into the window. This is a pain because if I want to refer to a file or folder with a long and complex path, I have to manually type it in, sometimes having to refer to items using the old 8.3 dos format such as progra~1 for "program files" for example.

I have tried running the cmd.exe shortcut as administrator also and it doesnt change anything. I get a no entry sign as soon as I try to drag a file into the window.

Can someone tell me how to get round this please ?
I may be missing something obvious here but I have only had vista for about 3 weeks and finally have it stable, albeit on some older hardware.

Any help much appreciated

Hello guys,

I am wondering is there a way of opening websites in Incognito tabs from the Run Command.

Like, I can open up Run prompt by Win Key + R, and then type in the name of the website like for eg, https://www.google.co.uk and then hit Enter which opens up the website in the default browser. But what I'm looking for is kinda like a shortcut so that instead of opening it in a new standard window/tab it opens up in Incognito window.

Are there any flags for doing this?

Any help will be much appreciated.

Cheers.

You've already done a thread about an issue with IE (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/558396/no-internet-explorer-oe-wacky/#entry3555831). To avoid confusion, I recommend you edit that thread and copy your IE issue from this thread to that one.

Greetings I'm working on a customer's HP All-In-One computer with Win7SP1, giving it a "tune-up". The first problem I came across was that Windows Update wasn't working and the last update had been in April. For some reason the service had been disabled, so I re-enabled it. Something like 30 updates mostly failed during restart, but after trying a couple of times they finally took.

I then wanted to run "sfc /scannow" via the command-prompt shortcut under Accessories, as an admin. The CP window opens and instantly closes again. I thought, "That's odd," and booted to Safe Mode. Same problem. So I booted to Safe Mode w/CP, and same thing, the computer boots to Safe Mode, the CP window opens and closes instantly.

Other things I've tried:
-Since I can't run "sfc", I removed the drive and connected to my Win7 computer via USB and ran sfc with the switches for off-boot drive/dir. It ran successfully and said it repaired some errors but not all. It says that for every computer I've ever run it on.

-Virus Scans: Computer had MS Security Essentials, so did full scan and it found like 3-4 viruses (mostly java based). Then installed Malwarebytes and it found 2-3 more and cleaned them. I then ran MRT(Malicious SW Removal Tool) and it found 1 more virus. I then uninstalled MS SE and installed Avast!, and its scan found 1 more. It then did a pre-boot scan and everything was clean.

Hello all,

I am unable to open the Command Prompt window using Start->Run and entering cmd. When I enter cmd, all of the icons on my desktop disappear, the screen flashes, and then the icons reappear.

I deleted a file and I believe it was the wrong file and cannot remember what it was nor where it was. Now a DOS window opens on start-up. It says file not found.
Then goes to the system32 folder.

If I close the DOS window before the start-up finishes, then OS does not complete starting up. If I wait until start-up finishes, then the window just stays open and the system works normally, I can close window without errors.

How can I find out what is trying to open and causing this? Sure would like to reinstall whatever is going wrong.

Hi dreuzel,

This reg entry appears to create a right click option called "Open Command Window Here (Administrator)", which in turn opens a CMD prompt with admin elevation. You are saying that mapped drives don't open but local drives do, this is correct so far yeah?

Take a look for any other entries in the registry that might effect the results. The places to check are:

Meanwhile I'll test this too and let you know what I find.

This is the Task Scheduler, right? Why is it opening a Command Prompt window, never did this before. I noticed The Windows update icon is now in the System area of the TaskBar, so I suspect it was Automatic Updates kicking in, but why the black CP window?

Howdy! I've tried the search utility here with no luck, I've also googled every term possible - again, no luck, so here's my strange predicament: all of my small command line exes are misbehaving the same way, i.e., on opening, they all quickly flash the command-line interface and then disappear. To where, I can't find out. They're not in processes and they're not running, as far as I can tell. Incidentally, my Windows XP Start>Run command-line works just fine. I am able to open these exes there but I'm very inept at running them from there. I'd just like them to perform as they’re supposed to. Do you have any idea what it is that needs configuration? I'm sure of the integrity of these apps, some of them I've used previously with no trouble. MBR tools, for instance. I've scanned recently and don't suspect virus infection as everything else performs well.

Is there a command line that enables Desktop Window Manager? I tried to go over the winsat command parameters but couldn't find anything that would enable the DWM. Restarting the "Desktop Window Manager Session Manager" (uxsms) doesn't seem to do it. Only
way that worked for me is to manually run the aero troubleshooter and select the option to automatically fix the issue.

I extracted a WIM out of a reference (sysprepped) VM from Hyper-V. I have tested it before and although aero is not supported on VMs (I think), the extracted image did have aero enabled when deployed on physical machines last time I tested it.
Playing around with the settings, it looks like just changing the theme to one that has aero enabled takes care of it as well so I'll probably go with this option.

Shut down your computer, if you have no other way just use the power source. You are probably having problems trying to do an upgrade with a pc that is having issues. Once you begin working properly. Use the upgrade advisor from microsfoft, to make sure that you did not add any programs to your computer that are not compatible with Win 7. Then do a clean install, again. I know its a PIA, but its worth is. This time, when you are up and working make a system image and put it in a safe place. If you ever have this kind of problem, again, you can just restore the image and save a lot of headaches.

hi,

i've installed netcat, but as soon as i type anything into it the black screen almost immediately disappears. I'm running Windows Xp Home. Is there any way i can fix this? Thanks.
 

A:netcat window closes seconds after typing a command

Suggests that you are typing an invalid command or that netcat is not active, hence the DOS emulator screen immediately closes.

Fron the Run windows, type CMD

That should give a "permanent" window into the DOS emulation of XP, type the command there and see what the outcome is. An error will then be clear to read instead of just closing the window.

Hello:
Hopefully I have the right forum for this problem, I think that there are a couple I could put it in.
Im running Windows Vista Home Premium 32 Bit with Service Pack 2 Installed. I also am
running Norton 360.

For the last couple of days I've been trying to concatenate two files from "Anim8or" to make
a file I can use in Celestia. They are known as cmod files, and I believe may be bianary type.
I've used an example syntax to form my command syntax. I've also found this syntax example
in one form or another on several websites. (I've tried every variation I ran accross and none worked.)
Thinking it might be the file extensions, I tried to concatenate a couple text files made on Notepad,
but those also failed. I instead have received one of the four following error messages, the top two
being the most common.
"The System Cannot Find The File Specified"
"The System Cannot Find The Path Specified"
"The Sybtax Of Command Is Incorrect"
"Is Not Recognized As An Internal Or External Command, Operable Program Or Batch File"
I've check file paths in the files properties...they look correct. I also tried running the command
window as administrator, but it opens in the wrong directory when I do. I'm going to include
both the syntax's I've used. The first being the one I need to concatenate, and the second
is my text test.

Hello Again;

Okay tonight I made one last attempt using the syntax previously mentioned. After two days of trying,
tonight for some odd reason, it worked. I got my cmod completed. There must have been some glitch
somewhere in the system that cleared itself.

At any rate, that means of course, that this problem has been solved. Although if anybody has a
wild idea of what the problem might have been, I'd love to hear it. I do know it was not a typo, since
I used a cut and paste on the syntax.

I have a small batch file with some chkdsk commands scheduled (using Windows' Task Scheduler) to run weekly. The command I've specified on the Actions tab is simply

C:\checkdisk.bat

I know it runs because Task Manager shows chkdsk.exe using 2% of CPU for awhile and then sits at 0% usage (because the last chkdsk is waiting for me to respond y or n for running the check and repair at the next boot).

The problem is that the Command prompt window does not show, so I cannot see the output and cannot respond. This procedure worked fine in XP.

Is there a way in Windows 7 to make the window visible? Maybe an option on the command?

I should add that on the Task Scheduler's General tab I do NOT have "Hidden" checked.

Running a Gateway DX4720-03

All-of-a-sudden, now when my computer is set to sleep, it no longer sleeps but shuts down. I have it set to sleep when inactive for 10 minutes, or when I depress a specific button on my Logitec cordless optical trackman. Been doing it this way for 2 years without a problem. I have also tested the sleep command by choosing sleep from the Start globe on the taskbar. In all instances, the sleep command leads to a shut down.

When awakening the shut down computer, I get a Windows Error Recovery screen. Choosing Normal Start reboots everything without a problem. However, one interesting thing I noted was that if Firefox is minimized at the time the sleep command is given, on rebooting, Firefox informs me that FF crashed and asks if I want to restore it.

I'm at a loss as to why this is happening and how to fix it...
EDIT: I might also add that although I have been using Google search engine in FF's address bar, I now note that Yahoo has become my default search engine. However, I was able to change it back to Google. However, when highlighting text and dragging to an empty space (which normally brings up a Google search), now brings up a Yahoo search...even though the address bar now brings the Google search-as wanted???

Hi all, been using the option to 'Open command window here' when you Shift+Right-Click on a folder/network location for a long time but funnily enough I've never noticed that it maps a drive if it's a network location you use it at (but sure, thinking
about it, it makes sense).
However I did notice it for the first time today but also some strange behaviour. When I use the option, it's mapping the drive visible and on closing the command prompt, the drive mapping doesn't disappear. My investigations, aka Googling, has suggested
the drive should un-map itself.
Also, if I open a command window using the same method again without manually disconnecting the drive, it maps a 2nd drive which only appears after I disconnect the first drive (so it appears just to change the drive letter). So it's using a new letter each
time I use 'Open command window here' at the same location.
My question is which part of what I described is normal behaviour and which is not? For anything that seems odd, is there a way to fix?
Thanks.

I have an ASUS Altec Lansing laptop which I am trying to repair. It was given to me by a friend as it was unable to load windows. It came with a recovery disk no OEM and I was able to run the repair successfully and it reinstalled Win 7 HP 64 bit. I partioned the hard drive into C and D. This laptop hadn't been used in awhile so there were many updates to install which it did with the exception of the graphics card driver. Occasionally, I would get the BSOD but was able to recover and launch Windows.
I have tried various boot up options (f8) in the list but wanted to use safe mode with command prompt it comes up as x:\windows\system32\cmd.exe but does not allow keyboard imput so that's a first for me. My first thought is that it's not seeing the c: drive where the OS was installed.
I changed the boot order in the bios to run from the cd drive so I could run the recovery disk again but it's not bringing up the system tools to allow me to do anything......actually it did a couple of days ago it didn't show a drive to repair that box was blank and it wouldnt let me reinstall drivers and just hung there.
Any suggestions would be great I'm using this laptop to learn with so even if I have to go back to the beginning its fine.

A:Unable to type in the command prompt window and other issues

I am not sure it will work on the laptop but download ASUS's diagnostic tool.
 
If not ASUS's tool you can run Seatools for Windows to check your hard drive and Memtest+86 to check your memory. Run the memory test for at least 6 passes and preferably overnight.

This flashes about every 10 to 15 seconds and is not only annoying, but it slows the computer and mkes it difficult to work since the window is the active window while it is open. I have not been able to tie it to any particular process while watching Task Manager when it happens.

Hello all,

I'm looking for some advice on my "secondary" computer, one that the version of Windows is not genuine (ssshhhh!), and one that I run a number of file sharing programs off of. It seems I got a major virus or spyware infliction, and after running Spybot Search and Destroy, it located over 6,000 infections... including modifying the registry values. I removed everything that I could.

Now, upon startup, XP loads but the taskbar is not there, none of the desktop icons are there, and all I get is continuous loading of the black command prompt window (surfaces about 3 times every second) over and over and over again. The command prompt window says nothing now, just a black box.. but it used to say something about Win32/CMD or something to that effect. Something is definitely wrong.

I tried to boot from a Windows XP SP2 CD that I have for my primary computer, but the CD would not automatically load upon startup to allow me to do a repair. There is no CD drive built into the desktop, but I do have an external CD drive that is connected by USB.

I also tried to restore to an earlier setting, but the only setting i have is from the day before... when there was still a problem.

What are my options here? I don't have very much money, and can't afford to buy a new version of Windows. Thanks in advance for any help!

I have a problem running a task with Task Scheduler. The task doesn't run. I have to debug it. When I try to make it run from the app a message appears on a command line message, but it appears and disappears so quickly that I can't read it. To fix the problem I need to read it to know what is going on.

Can someone please tell me how to stop that command line window message from closing, please?

Will AUTOCAD 2000 (with MCAD) run on Windows 10? AUTOCAD 2000 was written for Windows XP. It will not run on Windows 7 so I have been using XP Mode on the Windows Virtual PC. Will AUTOCAD 2000 run directly on Windows 10. Will Windows 10 have
a Virtual PC with XP mode (now or ever)?
Also, will Windows 10 demand exclusive use of the LINK command as Windows 7 did (Which made my FORTRAN Compiler useless.)?
These 2 pieces of software cost more than $6000 and I recent Microsoft for making them useless. My next hardware purchase will be a tablet and it will NOT have a Microsoft operating system!

A:Windows XP software (AUTOCAD 2000) on Window 10 and the LINK command

Microsoft is not responsible for updating your applications or maintaining compatibility of a 16 year old application, if AutoCAD doesn't want to update their ancient version to run on a modern OS, that's hardly Microsoft's fault.
You can try running both your programs in Windows XP compatibility mode and see how that works.

XP Mode was a Windows 7 specific feature, and is not available on other versions of Windows.
If you've got Windows 10 Pro, you can install Hyper-V and run XP SP3 in a VM (you will need your own license of XP and the media to install it however)

Hi,

I was fiddling around with the folder options > file types a little bit to assign mp3s to winamp and WMP and so on...

I also checked out the file type "drive" and made no changes and clicked OK. Since then, whenever I double click the C drive or D drive, it opens a command window instead of opening the drive. I can right click on it and click Open in the menu though. But why should I have to do that? What has been changed? No, no virus. It only started doing this after I did the above. I anyway scanned the machine using SAV corporate version, nothing found.

I went back in and saw there are only two actions in the advanced section - 'find' and 'open command window here'. None is set as default, but apparently it's executing the 'open command window here' action on double click.

I thought of adding an "Open" action like for other file types, but it wants some program and the path to it to execute this action. What program does it use, I don't know.....please help.

i figured out the solution here it is.

I just finished [finally] updating my copy of Windows 8 Pro to Windows 8.1 Pro (manually downloaded the ISO from Microsoft and did an in-place update within the existing copy of W8). After I did all of the available Windows Updates, I noticed that, whenever I try and open an elevated Command Prompt window (I want to do this to try and manually do some things to remove Windows.old, since it says that the directory is not empty), I see it open, but close instantly. A non-elevated Command Prompt window opens just fine. I searched, and haven't found anything. This also happens in safe mode.

The default command window font on my W10 Pro is so small as to be unreadable. I changed the cmd.exe font and size properties but that only solves the problem when cmd.exe is run directly. Batch (.bat) files and other programs that open a command window still show in the original tiny font.

I'm going blind here, can someone please tell me how to change this?

I've changed my Command Prompt window to display yellow text on blue, changed Font size and changed window size. I went to Start, All apps, scrolled down to the W section, scrolled down to Windows System, right-clicked Command Prompt, clicked More and chose Open File location. Then I right-clicked that shortcut and Properties. The same settings affected both Command Prompt choices on the right-click of the Start menu.

Hi,
 
I have noticed that I am seeing a small black Window flash open and then close again intermittently.
I am fairly sure that it is a command prompt Window.
It happens so quickly that I cannot read it, let alone take a screen dump - even if I knew when it was going to happen.
 
Normally, I would believe that my system is 'clean', however I would value knowing what to check please. Please let me know what information I can give you to help find out what it is.
 
OS:
Windows 10 Pro (clean install in August);  other info I can let you know as needed.
 
Thanks in advance!
