moving/renaming system32 commands on win 7 doesnt work as expecte

Say I move ping.exe or netstat.exe from the system32 folder and run the command. I know the command runs (used wireshark for ping.exe to capture packets) but the display on the screen is messed up - nothing shows up.
Any idea why?

Is this a feature of windows 7?
How can I work around this?

Thanks

Why do you need to move them why not run directly from elevated command prompt

Actually speaking those commands don't need elevated privileges to be executed (either inside/outside) of system32.

Does Win 7 use the command name and location information when executing the command?
