Windows 7: Strange Command Prompt Issue

01 Aug 2009   #1

Windows 7 x86 Build 7264
Strange Command Prompt Issue

This problem also occurred in build 7264.

Whenever I open command prompt, whether it be running it as admin or not, it causes explorer to crash within 15-20 seconds of opening it. Explorer restarts just fine, and the problem will not occur again unless I re-open command prompt.

Anyone else experiencing this issue?

Thanks for any and all help!
