    The above has started to appear in system bootup. I looked in msconfig and sisn't see it. Has anyone had this problem and how did they remove it?

    I don't understand how the above response has anything to do with solving my problem. My problem is that the above file runs at bootup on my computer and I would like to get rid of it.

    If getting rid of it remain's your objective, best bet's posting at a forum that offer's HJT analysis.

    Hasn't anyone had this problem before? I just recently started to get C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe to appear in my bootup.

    advice given to others with similar problems include

    run various spyware programs etc.

    do a search of c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe on your computer and see what it finds (mine has the cmd.exe in the system32 folder and the system32\dllcache)

    It may be linked to one of your start up programs, try disabling them systematically to see if one is the culprit.

    Failing this I would do as GlobalForce suggested.
