Trying to use Command Prompt and it comes up with C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe Another Program Is Currently Using This File. So when i try to use taskmanager to see whats using it..taskmanager doesn't work.
I tried Start ,Run, and typed in taskmgr and it came back and said Another Program is Currently Using This File.
Anyone any ideas ????

I am having the exact same problem, have you sorted it out?
The only way i can get the command prompt to open is to type in COMMAD, then when it opens nothing I type in is recognised, even when you type help.
I have a HP Pavilion zd 8369EA Laptop using XP +sp2.
