Hello,

On my command prompt when I try any command, e.g ipconfig i get the error message
C:\Documents and Settings\User>ipconfig /all
'ipconfig' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

OS is WinXP SP3

Can you help? Thx.

Hello Lorjack,

I have Symantec Endpoint antivirus and I have set a daily scan.

Yes, in C:\WINDOWS\system32 folder, I have ipconfig.exe

ipconfig command also gives the same error message.

Thx

Hello

Any other suggestions plz !?

Thx
Its is simple thing...happened to me too after I unstalled some stuff. This happens when the PATH enviroment variable does NOT have "C:\Windows;C:\Windows\system32" in variable value.
Here is how you fix it: right click on My Computer -> Properties -> Advaned System Settings. Go to Advanced tab and click Environment Variables. In text list under system variables, double click variable named "Path". Add text "C:\Windows;C:\Windows\system32" in variable value at the end. (If you add in between, make sure you have ; at the end and before it.) Restart the command prompt.

Silly, nobody on this forum could answer this for so long :(
