    This sounds like an issue where cmd has been corrupted, either by some type of malware or the removal of the malware.

    If you are using Windows XP, first try going into Windows\System32 and running cmd from there.

    If that doesnt work I would suggest trying the following steps described here

    The poster also offers a batch file to do most of the work but the same can be done manually.

    Welcome Mel. Check the CMD.EXE program, it should be a 379KB file. You can try
    restoring the file or you can just type 'command' instead of 'cmd' and then use the
    ping program. It should work. Also Billy is right, check the computer for viruses.
