Sounds like your shortcut is corrupted.

right-click on your desktop. select 'New..' > Shortcut
In the Location box, type
%windir%\system32\cmd.exe
click Nest
In the name box, type COMMAND PROMPT
click OK
now right-click on the shortcut created, and in the 'Start in' box, type
%HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%
click OK

now right-click on the shortcut, and select Run as Administrator
what happens?

That's the proper result - but you didn't select Run as Administrator, by the look of it.

now enter the commands as in my instructions #2
then copy/paste the results, as my instructions #3
