My computer has just started warning me that it cannot find 'command.com' during boot-up into Windows and suggests that I search for it myself. After a few attempts, the dialogue box closes and Windows continues to load normally. I have found 'command.com' within my Windows subdirectory 'system32'. Should I be concerned? If not, how can I direct my computer to the right location and avoid the annoying warning message?
If you have a startup floppy for your OS then boot to the floppy and issue the command sys c: this will ensure that the Three DOS system files including Command.com are placed in the root directory of your Hard drive.
