Command Prompt Opens By Itself And Closes Immediately?
Aug 20, 2012
I'm going to college soon and so I thought I should bring my laptop with me. In preparation, I turned on the laptop and went into my admin desktop. Here's what I did:(1) Updated Java to Java 6 Update 32 (2) Uninstalled old version of Java, which was Java 6 Update 20 - by Sun Microsystems but was later owned by Oracle(3) Uninstalled some trusted useless programs from 2 years ago(4) Uninstalled AVG that was installed 2 years ago(5) Installed/Updated Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE)(6) Ran a quick scan with no threats(7) Right now, I am installing 68 updates for Windows 7Now, here's the problem..While I was scanning with MSE, I noticed my command prompt popped up for no particular reason and then it disappeared for a split second. It went too fast, I couldn't read what it had said on the prompt.
I have two computers running Windows 7 x64. On both of them, whenever I try to open a command line program it closes after a fraction of a second. This happens when I use ipconfig, and hldsupdatetool. This only started happening recently, sometime in the last few weeks, and I have no idea why.I am aware that I can use cmd and then type ipconfig, but this doesn't work for hldsupdatetool, and it takes much longer than just double clicking or typing ipconfig in the start menu search.
I have a different problem with COM Surrogate. I noticed something wasn't right when I got random freeze-ups playing audiosurf which is sensitive to CPU usage. I opened task manager and saw about every 15 seconds, there is a spike in the CPU usage. I checked the processes and saw dllhost.exe (COM Surrogate) is opening up and closing in just a few seconds, and repeats this about every 15 seconds which is eating my CPU. I do NOT get any error messages anywhere. I can view photos just fine. HOWEVER, I do see that any new photos' or videos' thumbnails are not updating. Any videos and photos I had before this problem have thumbnails, but not any new ones I create. I am running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.
I have a laptop with Windows 7 64 bit. The first few days I had it, Internet Explorer worked fine. Then it malfunctioned. When you double click the IE shortcut it would open for a split second then close. When you went to the Start menu, Programs, it would do the same. I downloaded and installed IE 8 64 bit from Microsoft's website. When I double click the IE 8 64 bit shortcut it opens fine! The problem is, I can't set IE 8 64 as my default browser. I get a Windows error message that says you cannot set IE 8 64 as your default browser. So I can open IE 8 64 manually but any link I click tries to open IE 8 (32 bit presumably) which still opens then immediately closes.
All of a sudden I can no longer open or close new tabs using the middle mouse click (clicking the scroll wheel) it doesn work in ie or in firefox. Also seems like it doesn't work on the desktop or any other application. I have'nt installed new updates or new programs, I don't have any "mouse software" like intellipoint. This affects both my wireless keyboard with built in trackball and a serperate wireless scrollmouse. The only think I can think of is that a few days ago I changed the the speed of my cursor.. of course this shouldn't have affected anything else.... but it is really annoying as I mostly use my computer for web browsing and always open links in new tabs..
Windows screen opens and immediately goes to white blank page and a few seconds later says Programme cannot display the webpage. I hadnt tried opening a web page or anything else. Eventually I get a Microsoft Security Essential messages asking if the following file path is malicious CWindowsuvwkviej.exe It then says restart required which I do but this doesnt solve the problem.
Trying to create a batch file for Windows 7 to run a command (elevated ) in command prompt?User: is an administrator or in administrator group ( but actual administrator account may be disabled )essentially need to be able to double click the *****.bat filehave it open up cmd in elevated ( run as administrator ) , run the command in the dos window and reboot the computer.
Ok So I got myself into a unique bind here. I was trying to install some custom system files (for a theme) and I did it wrong and now I cant open explorer.exe . I dont want to goto a backup because this is a easy fix. (in my view). So I need to know how to run command prompt with administrative privleges from command prompt.
I am trying to do this command: copy explorer.exe C:Windows
So if there is also another command I can just tack onto that that gives me admin rights to do it. I would be happy.
Does any one know how to get the win.ini missing fixed when opening bootcfg/msconfig not found. Also How to change "forcing changes in msconifg" to "not forcing changes" in msconfig from command prompt, as well as opening msconfig from command prompt w/ dos command(s) / paramteters.
I'm having an issue on my computer where command prompt will not open. I looked in the system32 folder and cmd.exe is missing, however there is cmd.exe.mui is there. I also tried to run hijackthis to get a log, however the program keeps spitting out a blank log when I click save log.
I am trying to run command prompt in windows 7 professional, but it is not appearing in front of me.
1. I tried to run it from Start --> Accessories --> Command Prompt
2. I tried to run by typing cmd on the start menu and then finding the .exe file
3. I tried to run using Run command by typing cmd in Run dialog box
4. I tried to run it from C:/Windows/system32 folder
5. I also tried to run it using right click and then selecting Run as Administrator
But whatever I tried to do I cannot see the command prompt window.Also, when I run the task manager, I can only see the cmd.exe running in the 'processes tab' and that too one new process for each time I have clicked on the cmd.exe.But it does not show cmd.exe in the 'applications tab' where it should be showing.
My computer (Toshiba Satellite running Windows 7 Home Premium) acquired some sort of terrible virus and shut itself down. When I try to turn it on, it goes into startup repair, and startup repair always fails. I have tried every single system restore point, and that fails too. When I try to start it in any of the safe modes, it simply goes back to startup repair and fails again.
He was able to access C: in command prompt. All my files are in their original locations and haven't been corrupted, but there are also four folders with names like xisdfl83lkd02 (seriously) which definitely weren't there before and presumably contain whatever has crippled my precious laptop. Whenever he tried to delete those folders, the command prompt looked like it had accepted the delete command, but then when he went back into C they were still there. So the bad files are immortal or something.
He said he was able to move things around, so I should get an external hard drive to back up my files, wipe the computer back to factory settings, then put my files back on it from the external hard drive. Well, now I have an external hard drive but don't have him around to do this.
I have absolutely no experience with command prompt, and I've read a bunch of tutorials on how to use it, but they aren't dumbed down enough for me to understand them. I need someone to walk me through it.
I can access the command prompt, but it goes into X:\sources\recovery\Tools> as a starting line. The thing at the top says Administrator: X:\windows\system32\cmd.exe. I didn't even know X was a real drive. I try to get it to C and it just goes back to X. When I type cd E:\ or cd F:\ trying to figure out where my external hard drive is, E says "The device is not ready" and F takes me right back to X:\sources\recovery\Tools>.
How do I get to the directory where I can find my files and move them to the hard drive?
Alright so for the past few days my girlfriend's computer has been having a very quick command-prompt-looking pop-up within 10 minutes of starting up. We weren't able to catch a glimpse of what it said until today, as the pop up is literally less than a second long.We recorded her screen and were able to pause at the time of the pop up, discovering what the pop up is.
This probably is not new to many, but I find it useful.There are times I want an elevated command prompt. I usually type in "cmd", right click on it and run as administrator. If you need an elevated command prompt now and then, simply create a shortcut to "cmd". Right click on the shortcut, left click on properties. Click the shortcut tab and select "advanced". Finally, you can select "run as administrator".Like I said, just something I didn't think about before, but it's handy to have.
so today i tried to open my command prompt because i tend to allocate more ram to minecraft whenever i play. I searched for it, and it was not even there. i searched cmd, went into accessories, and even did SHIFT-RC and it said "application not found". so is there any way i can get this back?
I'm using a SSH server to remotely access my notebook from work. It works well for SFTP and remote command line access using a dedicated, non-admin, user account.Problem is when I want to run something that requires admin permission under that connection. The server runs cmd.exe under the context of a non-admin user I've created for it, so I'm limited in what I can do. Question is, how can I "elevate" that remote command prompt to execute admin-only programs and commands? UAC of course will not help under that conditions.
