Check your C:\Windows\System32 folder and make sure ipconfig.exe exists in that folder.

Type into the command prompt:
PATH=%SYSTEMROOT%\System32
and then type ipconfig.

I think somehow your path variables were messed up. If my most recent suggestion does not work, I will be surprised.

Yes. And %SYSTEMROOT% and %SYSTEMROOT%\System32\Wbem

Add %SYSTEMROOT%\System32;%SYSTEMROOT%;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\Wbem; to the path in Environment Variables. You should have those as your first three paths.

I will give you a new path and you can delete your current path. Give me a minute to put it together.
