Windows 7: Cmd Regedit missing from run menu

no,no,not the *where* search....the search for cmd.exe file.
since i couldn't start it from the search/run menu i was looking for it in the windows folder...and the search found 1 cmd.exe (the one in the weird location) but after i let it run longer,it found more cmd.exe files (including the one in system32/ folder

Heres the results after i run that command




Also i run sfc/ scannow command and it fixed some stuff...i want to open the log file it created which is almost 1GB!! But it wont let me open... says "access denied" im going to restart pc once my index will finish rebuilding..i hope it will start up






edit: still did not restart the pc...but i tried to search again for cmd.exe in windows folder (after sfc/ scannow) to see in which other locations it would show up and it showed me only 1 file! in system32/ folder. well at least that was fixed...

From an Elevated Command Prompt, where cmd should respond immediately as follows:

C:\WINDOWS\system32>where cmd
C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe


If the response is anything other than that you may have picked up some malware.

It seems that cmd.exe location has been fixed..
But I'm still unable to run anything from the start menu

Try running in cmd:
Code:
findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >"%userprofile%\desktop\sfcdetails.txt"
Check the created file to make sure it is not empty. If it is, perhaps you don't have permission to read the file? Try adding yourself with Full Control explicitly on the Security tab of file properties. And re-run the command.

Well, C:\Windows\System32 is in there. But it is behind all that database lookup stuff. I would copy the path to notepad and edit it to put c:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32 at the beginning. Supposedly the Path is limited to 4095 characters. Maybe it ends up being longer than that when that stuff up front is expanded. Try it up front. Make a copy so you can put it back the way it was if it is worse than before. Should not take long to try.

Did you try editing the Path? It takes 2 minutes. A lot faster than reinstalling.

Right click on Computer, click Properties, press the Environment Variables Button. The one you want is down the bottom. The System environment variables. I just did mine for grins.

You can try a Repair Install first - Repair Install

And a clean reinstall if it doesn't work - Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
