Windows 7: Command Prompt Won't Open

Command Prompt Won't Open

I was messing around with the command prompt, trying to make a script to scare the shit out of my friend when he opens it. I entered the following code, under the assumption that it would make the prompt go full screen.

[Default.AddReg]
0x4,"Console","FullScreen", 0x1

After I hit enter it asked me if I wanted to overwrite FullScreen. I said yes and nothing happened to the prompt. But after I closed the window I was unable to open another prompt up. Task manager says its running, it just won't display it. I have tried restarting. Is there anything other than a reinstall that will fix this?

Where did you enter this code? In the registry?

Can you do a system restore to a few days before you made that change?

No I haven't set it up yet since my hard drive crashed. Thanks for reminding me though.

Where did you find this code that you enetred? Search the same source to see if there is a code to reverse it.
