Broken CMD.exe, need download

For some reason my Command Prompt will not start and I need a download to replace the existing one. I decided to post a topic here because I trust this place.

Can you do this scan...
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
...from the safe mode?

If not, then maybe this:
SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot

To add a little to UsernameIssues suggestion which could very much solve your problem.
Also make sure you are using cmd prompt as the administrator.

***Have you been using any 3rd party Tune Up or registry fix it programs?

You could also try if sfc /scannow doesn't fix your problem a Restore Point before your problem started.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, and yes I have used a third party Tune up program. I hated it and attempted to uninstall it. I am still cleaning up shit it put in the registry and all over my file system. I would do SFC /scannow command but I have lots of windows mods that I want to keep installed.

Well you have some choices to make.
If your computer can't run sfc /scannow then the next choice in my opinion would be Repair install
